According to Wikipedia "Typically, still life photos are not close up to the subject nor far away, but at a very head-on angle. The art in still life photography is often in the choice of objects that are being arranged and the lighting rather than the skill of the photographer". Not sure i have ever shot this way. Here perhaps?

Nice shot, but more macro than still life.
The essence of a still life is an arrangement of a number of (unrelated) objects to produce a pleasing composition. Often the choice of objects has a symbolic meaning. Like this painting by Pieter Claesz (1628), depicting the brevity of life.

Then this is not stiff life right?

I would think that would qualify.  

I think it's more about an arrangement and collection of items.   Closest I get is doing the product photography for our daughter's business.  She spends hours trawling through old junk shops, collects old fabric, letters, stamps, small items of furniture that can serve as a surface, backdrop and add texture.  Setting the stage.  Because I usually take the image looking down to highlight the print design it's not quite still life but I think it follows similar principles.  It's having an eye to put the arrangement together, and lighting correctly.

This example didn't make the cut but to show what I mean.

I am not sure if I like to see this topic in "Other" since it is for CL users!... But anyway!...

Now that this CL topic has been moved to "Other", it seems dying little by little! Let us keep it alive!

AS I predicted, by moving this CL related gallery to "Other", they just killed it!...

Perhaps if you didn't limit submissions to the CL camera, you would get more traffic.

In my opinion, Still Life should be a category by itself in the Photo Forum, open to all Leica cameras. This is  something that only the administrator/owner of LUF could decide. 
Since we do not have this category  and I was in the CL gallery, as a CL user, I opened it as it is. It looked working well till it was moved to a different place.

"Still life" would be a great category... after all a well established genre in several art disciplines.

All you have to do Louis is start one, in the Photo Forum...it's not always required by intervention by the moderators. And keep it open to all Leica camera stuff...usual rules. I have one going "Rust" and corrosion which is bubbling along.

I'll support with something beaut.

Hello David,

I wish it was possible. But only Andreas, the Administrator of the site, can do any change; remove, add or  replace any gallery.

We discussed this issue several times in the past but it never happened. I guess if more people request for this new topic in the Photo Gallery, , the Administrator may consider it.
