I happened to be slaving away in the house today, cleaning and dusting. Dust sends me into fits of sneezing, so I usually wear a face mask. I took advantage of all the props already on the floor and shot a few images. After I was done, there was so much spray wax on the nightstand that I had to scrape it off with a spatula Tongue

Processed in NIK Silver Efex 2 Software, which I would recommend hightly for mono conversions.

You might see this one in the Gallery also. I put a link to our group; hopefully we will get a few more joining in the fun.

I think this is an excellent use of natural light, with a partially lit back subject, yet retaining detail in the figure. The deliberate (!)rumpling of the bedsheet and the lighting of it works well. I also like the way the vac tube points to the corner of the frame, and the way it catches the light, thus leading the eye to the subject.

Hope this doesn't sound too condescending. I 've got no negatives.Smile

Rumpling was not deliberate. I was changing the bed linens and the duvets were strewn on the bed - this truly was taking advantage of the moment - no way I would have set this up or gotten out the vacuum cleaner (heaven forbid) if it weren't my twice yearly cleaning Wink

Appreciate your comment.
