Arsenic & Old Lace

By chase
Well,I finally decided to get the camera out today...after a fairly lengthy rest ...I do have a good excuse though Wink

These things are from my 'little box of treasures' which I have collected over a few years.

The Lamp was in my Dad's garage, (Mum did offer to clean it for me but I politley declined)
The bottles were bought by me from different antique type places & the pretty watch belonged to my does still work & ticks beautifully.
The lace was knitted by a very good friend of my Nana's,about 60 years ago.

An HDR creation,7 frames,each one stop apart,combined & tonemapped in Photomatix.
Lit by my lightbox & mutilated in Photoshop with a number of texure layers.

F11 manual mode
ISO 200
F/L 50mm
Raw files converted in C1.

May I take this...somewhat later than anticipated...opportunity to wish everyone a fabulous New Year.
Thanks for dropping by.
Janet xx

I agree with Nick. I would also add that it's absolutely gorgeous and would be totally spoiled by the inclusion of a DaveU (notwithstanding the handsome devil that he is).

A butterfly though ................
