Lamplight in Colour

By adagio
Many thanks for the votes & comments on my previous upload, with special thanks going to Rich (woodini254) for the User Award (PM sent) so very much appreciated.

Lamplight in Colour to follow on from yesterday’s B&W rendition. These items were placed high up on a mantleshelf in a National Trust gift shop, so I “borrowed” the set up to see if I could get something out of the scene, albeit the verticals are a bit all over the show! In this coloured version, I have tried to enhance the lamp and make more of the old books…..OK guys, over to you let me know what you think!!

Have a good day.

Much more appealing and the lighting is definitely reminiscent of lamp light. Well done!

Of days before the internet, reading the encyclopedia by lamp light. Rather like the wonky verticals which add a sense of age

I find this one much more appealing than the mono. I think its the detail and colour that make it. Have an award.

I don't mind the 'lean' of the books Angela. They are old, they are entitled to lean a bit. A beautiful image.

I really like this colour version Angela, great work.

This is much better Angela, books lean all on their very own and sometimes look much more authentic than standing to attention.
Just be aware of the light halos, especially around the lamp, easily fixed with the clone tool set to darken on a separate layer just in case.

Both versions are very good, I think the colour holds the winning edge.
