Heaven or Hades ?

By chase
Back to some dark stuff today Smile

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

Lit by daylight camera left and a small red darkroom light camera right. I knew that little darkroom light would come in handy Wink

Interpret this as you will, my thoughts are as the title suggests.

Thanks for dropping by.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.

As usual, a beautifully arranged and photographed still-life, Janet.
Interpretation? - artefacts often outlive their creator, symbolised by the skull, the rust shows everything decays if not cared for................

Well thought out, composed and captured Janet. The lighting is just perfect. Excellent work.

It is not heaven for sure, and it perfectly fits to my situation here, i don't know how some people enjoy to perform so frequently, it is difficult and unhealthy to stick to justice GrinGrinGrin, ok lets keep that personal matter aside...I always love your experiment and imagination in still life images, very cleverly used those lights and beautifully arranged those elements, the best still life image i have seen so far in this week, and not boredWink...Well Done...

Spare parts for instruments of torture? (Not the skull, of course).
