First Shots at Photography: Still Lives

I'm no photographer. But now that I got my own still shot camera, I just thought it was time I started experimenting with it.
The camera is an old 5 megapx SONY of the bridge category, it was my brother's camera that I got as a Christmas present, now that he bought himself a new Nikon D90. The LCD screen is broken but I can still use the viewfinder. Also, when I shoot indoors, without flash, the outcome is very noisy.
Still, I'm really happy about my new little toy.
I also made a few self portraits. Later on I'll definitely post some.
As for the still lives, I intentionally overdid Photoshop work so that the pictures would look somewhat like paintings. I also wanted them to be studies on color.
