Memories are Made of This

By chase
A follow on from yesterdays image with a little less in the frame this time, as some folk mentioned.

My Mum must have cut off the pretty collar from her wedding dress some 69 years ago now. I know I was christened in a gown made from her wedding dress and veil, I think that was quite traditional then.

Taken in diffused daylight camera left.
An HDR image, 3 frames, each 1 stop apart, combined in lightroom, finished in Photoshop with not too much faffing Wink

Thanks for dropping by.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.

I much prefer the simplicity here, the collar is clearer, the lines are cleaner, and there is almost a hint of a ghostly shoulder shape in the arrangement; although I think there's plenty of scope in the fan and gloves - maybe they could appear together?
The pearl buttons are beautiful; but I think there's also scope in the lace front of the collar, draped veil-like over the clock

Thanks guys.
Many thanks to Moira and Somnath, very complimentary to have your UAs chaps and really appreciated.

Moira, when I found the collar, it was scrunched up in a small plastic bag !!! I had to gently fasten the buttons as it is all really delicate but hard to the touch, almost breakable, I am reluctant to do anything with it Sad If anyone has any sensible suggestions , I would love to hear them.

Loads of ideas with this stuff as I have Mums wedding album too, that may be a challenge Wink

I like this one Janet. the shape and form of the collar is clearer with a hint of movement on the left; and a rather disconcerting solidity of the collar neck. A moving image no doubt full of memories for you.

This is a tad darker in tone which emphasises the age of that lace. What treasures Janet.
