If I Could Turn Back Time II

By chase
The second from my session with 'time' bits.
This one was taken with the Helios 44-2 just to see what difference there was between the Lensbaby with Sweet 35 and the Helios.
A similar set up but a very different result.

Lit by daylight camera left.
Camera setting were a little random Blush
A little artistic licence was essential Wink

Constructive critique and mods welcome.
Thanks for dropping by.

I have found the moth GrinGrin
Lovely large.
Might be a bit too soft for me but I know absolutely zilch about these lenses, so I can't really comment on that Blush

I like this set-up, but have two niggles. Firstly, the hourglass seems to be leaning to the right, so perhaps a wee tweak with the perspective tool? And at first glance, the bullet seems to have no obvious connection to the time pieces. Am I missing something?

I do like the effect of that lens - the lack of focus over the whole frame, signifying that we should perhaps not have too much focus on time in our every day life?

Well done!

Thanks all.
Yep it’s leaning Malc,try as I could to straighten things, I failed. Tried with the straighten tool and transform tools, no joy, I blame it on the lens Wink
Thanks for noticing, I turned you a nice shade of green Wink
The bullet does have significance, if I could turn back time it wouldn’t be there.

I was reading that by turning back time you might get rid of wars...

Not bothered by the timer, again it has that black sand which is quite unusual and falls in well with this darker image.

An image to think about Janet and that's always good.

As always Janet your still life images astound me with their beauty and colour palettes.
A delight.
