Grimms Fairy Tales

By chase
A second image from my trip to the Wendy House in my garden.
The books are all mine, I have had them since ever I can remember, I think some of the pages are coloured in ...ooops Blush

Again, tricky light and yes, I lit the candle but very quickly blew it out...a bit on the dangerous side in a wooden building !

Lit by daylight from the mucky windows and from the door camera left.

An HDR image, 3 frames each 1 stop apart combined in Lightroom and finished in Photodoalotofmessingaboutshop.

Thanks for dropping by.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.
Stay safe and most of and be happy.
Janet xx

Another fabulous presentation. I think the candle makes the shot! David

The curtains greatly enhance this lovely arrangement.

I do not think the candle being lit would have added in any way, Janet, in fact, perhaps the opposite, so a good H&S decision was also a good photographic one.Smile

It's such an atmospheric setting and this one definitely has the fairy tale feeling to it. I'm not mad about the candle though. For me it is a bit bright in colour compared to everything else and being so central it rather dominates. Just my opinion...others are available SmileWinkBlush

Thanks all.
Many thanks for your very complimentary UA David, appreciated.

Quote: I'm not mad about the candle though

Tried a white one, looked pants and very washed out Sad
The reds.. I attempted to put into an almost triangle, the candle and the two books.

I lit the candle but very quickly blew it out

With the candle light, it would have been great, nevertheless an excellent job...

I do like the candle with just a whiff of smoke and its holder in this set up Janet.
My only thought about it is whether that large lamp was needed. !
