Mug & Apple

It can usually be quite tricky to use an even number of objects in a scene [or so we are told] but I feel this one works. Must be the colors of the apple acting as the main focal point but then the height of the cup draws some secondary attention, so there's some sort of tension in a sense - or I've just been looking at it too long. I think it is good to understand why some subjects or setups work or don't work.
