Another still life this evening - I brought the skull in from the garden and really must put it out again before the snails in/on it wake up Smile

The shell is back in a bowl of Milton as it honks - one day it, and the rest of the shells, will be ok!

Thanks folks Smile

It's surprisingly hard to get decent smoke from a candle - I managed three shots and then changed the arrangement a bit and then it refused to give me any nice swirly smoke Sad I've got three more candles I'll get burning tomorrow and see if I can manage it again!

You always manage to get a really moody feel in your images.
Great arrangement and lovely smoke trail.

Like the set up apart from the green moss on the skull it seems to draw the eye.
Good smoke and textures too
Regards Richard

Thanks again folks - I'll probably keep messing about with this lot for a few days now Smile

I'm afraid the moss is staying put Richard - I opted to use this skull as it's not all nice and clean (and bright) like my other skulls. However the moss has grown on the skull - lots of it on the side you can't see - and I'm not taking it off Smile Chances are however that the skull in the middle of its forehead has wandered off now - I'll probably find it halfway up a wall one day Smile

Thanks again folks Smile

I do like this background Keith - doubtless I'll be using that ad nauseum now until I find another I fall in love with. I'm burning a new candle now in the hope that I can get some decent smoke swirls off this one - digits crossed for my next still life endeavour!
