Autumn Light

By chase
I love these little Pumpkins, different colours and textures, so very Autumn.

Lit by controlled daylight camera left against my dark backdrop.

An HDR image, 3 frames combined in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop.

I will upload a version too, a it of an experiment with 2 different light sources.
I think this one would be my preference although I do like the warmth of the version.

Thanks for dropping by.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.

Love the version Janet, nice glow from the lantern.

I prefer the lead image because it has "all natural ingredients" as it says on the packet!

I prefer the lead image too. The lamp doesn't seem to quite fit in and doesn't add much to the light
The lead image needs a an adjustment to the white balance to add a touch more warmth and autumnal feeling. I've done a mod with only this adjustment.

Two excellent arrangements, Janet, but like James, I am trying to justify the lamp. That said, it does give a very warming glow to the scene.

Thanks everyone.

It was the lamp that gave me a compositional problem, I like the light from it but........................

I like both, Janet, but I do think the lamp adds some balance. The large orange pumpkin in the lead image is worrying me in case it topples over and this may be why I prefer the lamp to give that extra bit of height instead.

Wait 'til you see the pumpkins I saw today...

Not quite as perfectly arranged, but GALLONS of soup!
Two outstanding still life images Janet, the version works best for me.

I love the version Janet - the warmth of the lamp adds to the autumnal feel.
