Mix of Time

By plstsn
Found this old rocking chair nicely placed in the my parents-in-law allotment garden cracked surface and all. I placed a hat and some worn-out sandals and shot at 3 different f-stops and put images thru PS. Nothing special but hope you like it!

Suggestions for improvement are most welcome.

Cracking shot, love the placement of the hat and sandals to give it the feel that it did belong to somebody once, it sort of tells a story... Cracking composition too. Really like this.

Well composed and imagined. If the light was more soft, maybe on a cloudy day, more details might come out. The light here is very bright with lots of contrast. I'm not sure if it would come out better, but it is worth a try.
