Revisiting and clearing out some older files, I found this one, part of a set I did a while ago.Thought it was worth an airing after a little re-working Wink

An HDR image 3 frames, 1 stop apart combined in Lightroom and finished in Photoshop.
Lit by daylight camera left.

Thanks for taking the time to drop by.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.

Brilliant composition, Janet!! This has got everything.....a spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down, the candle to help you take 1 teaspoonful before bed - perhaps all that's missing is the sick-bucket, lol!!!!
Oh, nearly forgot, I like the friendly little moth too👍👍!!

I'm glad you dusted this off, it is really well done. Old medical equiptment could make some interesting set ups.

I wish I had more of that kind of stuff, very expensive to buy these days though and my favourite Antiques place is now shut Sad

Wonderful! These do work so well utilising all these old props, just wouldn't be the same with modern stuff 😃👍

A poison-soaked sugar cube, and then your life is snuffed out, like the candle.

Thanks all.
Tony, great to have your UA, thank you.
It does take some time to get the Moths properly trained tbh but I don't do it, their MOTHers do it..........I'll get my coat Wink

I like the little detail of the red glow on the wick. You must have worked fast. Smile

I think the liquid in those bottles would probably make you sick Janet - spoonfull of sugar is a nice touch but I reckon more would be needed.Sad
