Oranges on Black and Gray

These oranges seem especially saturated - probably because the blacks are so very neutral and make the colors pop more.  I really enjoy setting up these still life compositions with a cast shadow across the background-- it enables me to get such interesting angles in the shadows and reflections.

Gretchen, I really like your work. This piece hits me in the right spot...strong composition, beautiful gray values, and a punch of color. Great job!
