Lamp Oil

By chase
I am still looking for places with good light in my new house so, I tried the garage, with the door almost up.
Luckily there are some nice mucky shelves built-in there Wink

Lit by gentle daylight camera left.
A 3 frame HDR image, each 1 stop apart.
Combined in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop.
The brick wall is mine, no, it's so not straight Sad ... the paint drips....a drop of artistic licence.
I don't know what is in the bottles, I rescued those from my Dads' shed and, no I am not going to open them to find out either Wink

Thanks for taking the time to call in.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.
Janet xx

Making good use of your new location.
Our garage as accumulated a load of clutter. When I can face sorting it I'm sure I'll find some suitable objects for photos. I may even, afer seeing this, attemp to use the brickwall as a backdrop.

Wonderful bits & pieces, Janet, and very nicely arranged and captured 😃 The square bottle reminds me of Camp Coffee, but can't think why it would be in such a location! 😃👍

I know what you mean was in Dads' shed and he didn't have a kettle in there Wink I suspect some form of oily liquid but I'm not taking the top off !!
Excellent still life Janet and a lovely collection of grimy objects. Love the brick wall, makes a great BG.

I think you're going to like your new garage. I like the red touches and the lovely old rusty lamp.
