This is wonderful, Nikolyn. Feels so down-to-earth and rustic with the basket of root vegetables on the worn wood table, yet the window reveals beautiful design and artistry, so we know we are some place special.

Nikolyn McDonald replied:

Thank you, Colleen. You have found a personal favorite and one that is hanging in my dining room as a framed print.

gorgeous still life F

Nikolyn McDonald replied:

Thank you, Linda.

I love the light and tones and the fascinating basket of roots. This is wonderful! L/F!

Nikolyn McDonald replied:

Thank you, Meg. Yes, I agree on the fascination of the subject - who would ever think that an old basket of root vegetables that look as if they have just been pulled from the garden would make an interesting "centerpiece"? It's all those shapes and textures, I guess :) Appreciate the comment.

I love the light and tones in this one Nikolyn!

Nikolyn McDonald replied:

Thanks so much, Betty.

Brilliant capture and presentation Nikolyn l/f and shared.

Nikolyn McDonald replied:

Thank you, Martin.

So textural, Nikolyn, that the root vegetables have a very lifelike and almost human body part feel to them. The natural light from the window behind is one of my favorite types of light for still life. It gives such a nice Chiaroscuro effect and gives a lot of volume. This is truly a fantastic shot!

Nikolyn McDonald replied:

You've picked a personal favorite. It's printed on canvas and framed in a very simple black frame and hanging in my dining room - along with another from the same place, Cuisine at Chenonceau which I toned to match.

Lovely piece, congrats on your placement in the Gallery Wall contest, l/f

Nikolyn McDonald replied:

Thank you, RC. I appreciate it.

Great composition, depth, and textures, Nikolyn. Le Château de Chenonceau is one of the most majestic structures on Earth and you've captured the atmosphere nicely.

Nikolyn McDonald replied:

Thank you very much. You are right - it's an incredible place.

Wow...What a gorgeous piece....v/f

Nikolyn McDonald replied:

Thank you very much, Viktor. You have picked a personal favorite. I have identically framed prints of this one and a companion piece which I call Cuisine at Chenonceau on the wall in my own dining room. I edited them at the same time so the tones would be the same.

This is a textural and visual feast! The contrasts and patterns, lighting and depth.. wow, excellent work!

Nikolyn McDonald replied:

Thank you so much for your generous comment, Chaline. I appreciate it.
