Brasso !

By chase
Another of the Telephone loaned to me by my friend.
A different composition,loads less textures ( especially on the phone Wink )
It needs cleaning so out comes the Brasso ( as if I would ! ),I just wish it was a far more rusty tin,I do have another gradually rusting outdoors but it's not ripe yet Wink
Lit by daylight...the highlights were a nightmare,faffed with in Photoshop.
Thanks for taking the time to look.
Janet xx

Wonderful. I nurture props but I'm not quite so calculating!
This is subtle, subdued, mellow. I particularly like the reflections in the Bakelite. Really attractive.

Lovely set up, Janet, but the Brasso should really be the liquid can with the screw top TongueGrin

Its all perhaps to tight the edge of frame Jan ?

That Brasso red is a clever L draw , but it don't fit so bright on the scene.

A really nice colour scheme nonetheless Smile

Its "kiissing" lines pull a whole attention tension for a relaxing image.

Have a look at some art stuff
