SUNDAY OBSERVATIONS CONTINUED:

@Smooth Steve - Excellent high angle POV of an attractive, symmetrical arrangement. Nice balance of the Evolution. Also, neat support for the Nivea.
@FreddieP318ti - Beautiful composition, Freddie. Love the mug and the brush handle is exquisite.
@evnpar - Superb close-in. Love the lighting and severe cropping.
@skypsyd - Splendid presentation, Dave. Display of the soap lid is perfect.
@Joli - Appealing shave portrait, Oskar. The lighting is perfect.
@eezee - Triumphant display of a majestic shave, Erich. Did you like the Nightingale fragrance?
@PACO GALAN - Lovely arrayment, Paco. The lighting is spot on.
@theos - Terrific overhead POV with attractive swaths of blurring at top and bottom which emphasize the elements.
@Sir_Eider - Both high angle shots provide an interesting perspective on a couple of nice looking brushes. I'd like to hear more about them.
@120inna55 - Sumptuous photo, Matt. The white backdrop allows the colorful label designs to really pop. The 400 is a great choice for this photo. Superb assessment as always.
@rob_shaves - Quite a fine close up of an impressive lather, Rob. You really put that brush and bowl to good use.
@jerrylee101 - Handsome setup, Jerry. How was the Shea Moisture Shave Cream's performance? I've hear that it is more a brushless cream.
@EzraCobb - Fabulous layout photo, Jamie. Smart looking design. Looks to be one fine shave.

Have a nice start to the week Gentlemen

You can almost smell the ghostly gunsmoke wafting in from outside through the rotted swinging door of the ghost town barbershop. Love the photo, Dave. Neat touch of the weird west.

Wonderful pic, Chris. Excellent lighting and the white backdrop serve this photo well. Black Ship Grooming is one of my favorite soapmakers. And Kelly's brushes are a wonder also. I love my Whaler.

Thanks for you compliments @ronweston !

They are testing prototypes of a new treated horse hair from Zenith, I'll write something about them in the brush section when I have more information about them. There are some folks involved who have more testing work as well.

@eezee - Triumphant display of a majestic shave, Erich. Did you like the Nightingale fragrance?
Thank you for your kind words Ron. Yes, I do like Nightingale. It starts off with soft fruit aromas but later evolves into spice and wood. It is another great offering from Zoologist.
