    Thank you for your votes and helpful comments. I've never photographed a piece of furniture before, and there's a lot more to it than I thought. I should have paid much more attention to the background.

    I had this as my #2 choice. Such a beautiful table.
Let's recount the votes!

I think Robert brought out some spot on points to consider.

    Beautifully crafted table, good example of sophistication. I wish the background was less cluttered.

    Absolutely beautiful - a piece of art. I UV filter in pp would have eliminated the haze and allowed the colour of the woods to shine though.

    A great example of sophisticated wood working. I think that this image could have been enhanced by moving the table to a different flooring (something dark) and more directed lighting. Also by using the Edit - transform - skew feature in Photoshop, the table can be more pleasingly aligned.

    Wonderful, intricate work. How lucky you are to inherit such a beautiful and personal heirloom.

    Very impressive work by your grandfather. I'd recommend photographing it with good light on the table, not so much on the floor.

    What a treasure. Photographed so the detail is easy to see.
