Initially,..as your image came up...; I had that typical "WOW,..it looks like a photograph" reaction which must be the most common reaction to your work;.....if the majority of it is done with such precision.
Then,..on a more aesthetic level, I found my self enjoying the harmony and similarity of color between the objects and the landscape. Interesting how you chose to line them up ;....all pointing out of the scene: yet with the variety of sizes,..various states of wheathering;..and consistent lighting;........it all works so nicely.
Superreal,..yet peaceful and interesting. Nice Work...

... but it seems to have been set in a studio and not outdoors. The contrived composition (having all the spouts pointed in the same direction) gives this work a sense of monotony in the tone of its subjectivity. The larger can on the right as it points to the tree in the corner, leads the viewer right out of the frame. I feel as if there are too many cans and as such, has only added to the confusion rendered by the many spouts. The coloration and form rendering are as good as I have ever seen. The theme is excellent and subject matter is very well done. -Harry
