A touch of the Old Masters from the New Master!
A great play with light-- lovely results!
Lovely light and tones.
You have produced a really lovely image...
Light, shapes and shadows. Perfect still life Alan.
I don't see too many still lifes on here Alan.
Perhaps no one fancies fiddling about with their rocks ?
Especially in a dark room shining a light on them !!
I think Kate got it right when she mentioned "old masters" it's dark and pleasing, perhaps a slight soften of the edges around the light might work or perhaps the light itself is meant to represent two more rocks which it does nicely.
The lighting is fabulous, and you've pushed it one stage beyond the standard, static Still Life.
Particularly after your comment on mine, I am tempted to suggest Stoned again as an alternative title...
And as a lazy opportunist, I just wish I had the patience and vision to set something like this up.
Mick has this . . . . this . . . this way with words, doesn't he?
I really rate this Alan for the same reasons as stated by Moira above - introducing movement into the genre is a daring step - challenging our definitions of the world around us. In terms of execution - again the image works, but I find the bright spot on the central rock just a little too strong for my tastes - and it proves a little distracting. That said at least its central position in the collection of rocks keeps the viewers attention to where the movement is.
People will talk you know if you keep "fiddling about with your rocks in a dark room". It looks from the comments above that questions are already been asked
I like this a lot Alan.
Another one to set the dutch painters turning in their graves!
This has a very ethereal quality about it which draws one in. The largest rock has a definite feminine quality about it Your creativity is shining through.

I have to say it reminded me of the colour and tones of a lot of Rembrant's self portraits.
Another amazing piece of art work, Alan.
Beautifully done Alan; I love the colours, the light and the composition.
That beautiful point where photography and art collide And this is Art.
very lovely and very interesting to look at.. truly engaging..
A Cubist beauty. Colours, tones, composition, all spot on.
