Muscari

By chase
Muscari or Grape Hyacinths from my garden, they are putting on a lovely show right now and look lovely between my little Daffs.

I had to get some of my blue bottles out, couldn't resist and I do like the challenge of photographing glass.

Taken in daylight camera left and behind, inside my light tent...it diffuses the light so nicely and saves me sticking stuff on the window Wink

Raw file converted in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop with a bit of faffing.

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

Stay safe everyone through these tough times.
Janet xx

I love those two leaves. Hints of semaphore signalling...

I thought they looked like one of John Travoltas' famous poses Wink

Very nice. Your tent makes a good job of stifling the highlights.
You are clearly ahead of us here in the frozen north. My muscari are through, but a way off full bloom.

OK, time to scatter some GEA fairy dust. I love the three sets of threes - three muscari, three leaves, three bottles. All with individual character, all beautifully balanced. Plus that single cork.
A master class in Still Life composition.

Love to see these gorgeous blue flowers Janet. Great shape in the frame and a nice contrast with that cork against the blue. Saw 2 Bee-flies buzzing on ours at the weekend.
