Still trying the pots - slightly different arrangement and far too much messing about. I give up - the Rankin programme is on any minute and I'm going to upload.

I just can't seem to crack it but I'll keep trying!

Thanks everyone - sorry for the delay - been vegging tonight Smile

I just gave up on this as I kept experimenting with different textures and none of them looked right to me. It was easier working with a plain white background! I do have some different neutral fabric which a smaller weave than the hessian - maybe I'll dig that out tomorrow and see what happens.

Pleased, and grateful, to see that I didn't make a total pigs ear of it though!

Featured e2 photo at the moment!

The grunge is a bit heavy for my taste but the canvas background works well. I also prefer the glassware to the metal plant sprayer (?) in the previous version, which was a bit too shiny to fit in. I wonder if the reason you can't quite process this to your taste is the composition? I'd arrange it with the pile of pots facing to the right, so they arch over the jug and frame the composition, rather than to the left, where they seem to lead the eye out of the frame.

For me there are too many things in the frame Alison,I see why you have the pots there...to give some height to the composition but I reckon you could have done without the very top pot & the Lanterns draped over them,the glassware is nice & I like the solitary Lantern at the bottom.
The hessian is perhaps a wee bit too heavy to apply textures to,you could try having it much further back from your subjects,that way it would be much more OOF behind the pots.Having said that,a plain bg is always a good starting block for texturizing images.

Back again - trying to type with very very cold hands - maybe I'll put some heating on soon!

Thank you again everyone - and than you Pete for the HC - a welcome surpise Smile

I've just set them up again and tried a few with a different arrangement - I've yet to get the other bit of fabric out but shall upload the setup very shortly as a variant in a moment. I'm just trying to grab some shots whilst the sun is coming in so I've got a few more shadows too!

Thanks John - and everyone else Smile

I've now played with V2 but can't decide whether to upload it tonight or another pic I've done today. I'll keep contemplating for a while.....
