What a very unusual grouping -- a bouquet of feathers. The variety of textures and colors makes this still life interesting to explore. The black background sets off the lighter and brighter colored feathers nicely, but doesn't do as much for the dark brown ones or for the vase itself. Because the background is solid, the arrangement appears to be floating and lacks depth; a glimpse of the table it's sitting on might have been nice. The crop is a little tight for me, too.
