This looks wonderful. The books look well loved and worn. Maybe look at the right lens of the glasses they seem a little blurry. I would expect to see some of the book reflected in them. Were you doing this from life?

Ramon: This just makes me want to sit back with a good book, and you rendered that feeling so well. Nice!
