Back Modifications (2)

The Chemistry book belonged to my, it's not straight Blush
Couldn't resist another frame including the little Bile Beans tin Wink

Taken in my garage, controlled daylight camera left.
3 frames combined in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop.
Yep, dark again, sorry, but I like the light on the glass.

Thanks for dropping in.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.

What's not to like about Chemistry Janet.
I've even had a little read of your dad's book...

I remember Bile Beans when I were a lad, though can't say I ever remember taking any! A super arrangement and presentation, Janet 😃👍

My Debs says this is like being back at Grahams Chemists when she started work there back in 1973-4, all is familiar, even the information on the page in the book SmileSmile:

Excellent light (and dark) Janet, I love that aquamarine colour in those two bottles, works so well with the colour of the eucalyptus oil.
I used to have that on a cloth hankie, when I had a cold as a child.
By the end of the day it no longer smelt of eucalyptus 😝 and my nose looked like it had been sandpapered 😂

Thanks everyone.

Trev, Bile Beans either make you f4rt or control it, can't remember which Wink nose looked like it had been sandpapered

A sandpapered nose is not a happy one Diane Sad

Dad had some great books, far too many though.

Those ingredients would make a delicious sauce or marinade, MJ. Crush the pills with a pestle and mortar.

You have a strange taste in marinades Mr Salty.
For goodness sake, tell Mrs Salty not to let you in the kitchen !!

What a great image as always and I do wonder just how much stuff you have collected over the years.

Given the discussion about AI of late on the site I just thought I would and a mod that uses Luminar Neo. I know a lot of people have got the software but are having trouble understanding it at a simple level. So I have done a mod that uses four sliders that will improve any image from the Creative section, this is as well as any other adjustments you may want to do.
1. Matte 2. Dramatic 3.Mystical 4. Glow ( This one only needs a very small amount). Remember it's your image adjust as you want.
The first image I also added a gradient filter to bring out the light around the bottles. That is all along with the four adjustments above.

When I looked at it I thought it needed a little aging so I added a colour polaroid look to the image.

I hope you like them both and that some of the above may help people that have Luminar Neo.
