Very Darwinist, and so very well composed and photographed. The placement of the candle providing a wonderful warming glow to the brass scales and it contents.

Yes, I know and I do have an old toad to put in there.

Thanks for very rare Old Witch User Award, though.

Like this Mr H - a life and death situation- favouring death by the look of those scales.

So much depth and meaning to this Keith, I think Bri has nailed the meaning, but at least the lights still on.

I'm not sure about some of the jet black backdrops on some of these tho, for me. its too harsh a contrast for the f//g/ But I guesss the light / dark contrast is part og the message (tho if you had the same fall off as on the rhs that would work).

It's just a classic black background but what it does is concentrate the attention on the composition and subject.

Cheers guys
