By Candlelight II

By chase
Another from my experimenting session using just candlelight, slightly different arrangement....without the Pine Cone Wink
My favourite bits are the reflections of the candle in the specs.

Lit by candlelight as you see here against a dark bg.
An HDR image, 3 frames each 1 stop apart, combined in Lightroom finished in Photoshop with a tidy up crop, levels and a touch of sharpening.

Thanks for calling in.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.

I prefer this arrangement to number 1. As you say it's a nice reflection of the candle flame in the glasses; and the candle smoke brightens the centre a little and connects the candle and the decanter, as do the flecks of reflected light in the glassware. All together a nicely
balanced arrangement.

An interesting rearrangement, Janet, and I think on balance, this one works better. I like the extra light falling on the candle holder, showing more of its pattern.

Beautifully done Janet, and I like the reflection of the flame in the specs as well as the soft shadows the candlelight has created, especially on the books and glassware. Nice one👍!
