Finalised image from the previous upload.
I've tagged it as digitally manipulated as there are a few B&W contrast layers involved in this and it's also a panoramic stitch from five shots although the format doesn't fit EPZ's idea of a panoramic so I've loaded it as a standard 1000 pixel.
Thanks for looking.
More nostalgic, less immediate without the pills. But I like the faded rose, I hadn't noticed that before...
The dark shadows extreme left and right are so much more satisfying than those cut-off diagonals...
Lighting details tones all work well Keith.
Like it alot, only niggle is so many many bits and bobs in shot..eyes wander around with nothing to focus on. Would have been better if one main focal theme or point. But like the flavour or mood.
These are being done as a commission for a large dining room. The client wanted large pieces that might create a talking point and in which you could spend time searching the picture and seeing the connections and the back story. The idea is that when you go back for a second look, you might see something you did not see before.
Wonderfully arranged and lit still life - full of interest at every point.
Fabulous still life, very artistic and lovely highlighted and shaded areas. Nice one!
So much of interest to see therein, and that is a superb bit of pipe smoke.

the detail of the shot is really awesome!
The final result is excellent Keith.
Thats a far more harmonious arrangement Keith. I like all the different elements - they support the main focal point (love the hour glass - time running out) I would like to see this large- couple of minor niggles - the cove where the globe is you can see the top of the bureau. It pulls the eye away. Also some of the dark recesses are little too dark (tho I guess that may be partly down to compression).
P.S. just seen this has got a very well deserved EC.
Congrats on such a fine shot and well deserved
cheers you lot and to Pete for the EC-majig
cool.... not usually fussed about still life, but this is rather lovely... that glass looks ace.
what you printing on - just done a load of 5 foot wide acrylic prints for the penthouse of the old Allders building on the Headrow - look really rather nice in that finish.. maybe a bit "modern" looking for this kind of image though.
Work of art....or, dare I say: Art!
Yeah - Fine Art, Bill
I think I might upload this tonight as a B&W panoramic.
Going to be on bonded alluminium, Ade
Beautiful .... a few subtle changes and it is a completely different picture ....
(the lamp is wonderful!)
Inspiring image Keith and so much to see and explore..
oh nice - that'll look the bollox
absolutely love the overall tones here Keith, a very warm scene, way too busy though making the eye wander from the theme.
Nice work - Was a toss up for me between the b/w version and this one. The title of Dear John made me think it was a letter from a women to a man - however the glass of whisky stopped me in my tracks - I don't associate whisky with a women (sexist I know). Was this a deliberate juxtaposition between the title and glass?
The idea was indeed from a woman to man....hence the whisky - I don't mind being sexist
The actual letter is to Uncle Willy from his dearest little Fanny.
And there again I made the wrong assumption! I was thinking the letter was being written not read! God I need some more coffee to wake up!
You have reading glasses not a pen too - I am blind this morning.
I know what you mean but then even the best still lifes in classical art are obviously staged and look that way.
It's getting the trade off between composition and 'how it might appear in life'. Be good fun on winter nights trying to get the ultimate result.
Great stuff. I gotta got find some good props.
