I had trouble deciding which one of the following I liked best. The first is a relatively simple composition that allows you to focus on the individual brushes, but the second has a bit more interesting angles and a bit of light on the larger brush. Other than that, they are pretty much the same picture but the first is cropped more closely.
The third brings the light a little further down and creates an interesting shadow adding a little more depth. However it is a very balanced shot that I think takes a bit away.
The last shot is simply one of some old bamboo brushes that I have had for eons so they are a bit special, even though I don't use them very often.
