The Bedside Table

By Fefe
Another still life attempt from the other week, different stuff in this one but the vase of flowers and the pear still there. The bunny had lost interest waiting for a bite of the pear
A bit extra processing in this one as in minor tweaks and then I made some minor adjustments to the colours in 'calibration'.
You might prefer the original colours so I will upload that as a version. I was hoping to give it an aged appearance.

Wow, so pleased with the response to yesterdays upload 'Turned'....thank you all so much for the lovely comments and UA's.
Pm's sent. Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Lovely images Diane. I think I'm going with the lead, the more muted tones. For the aged feeling.

Lovely still-life work again, Diane, and I'm rather preferring the more subtle colouring in the lead 😃👍🏻

Two very appealing scenes, Diane. If pushed, I'd go for the richer tones of the version.

The only thing that jars for me is the book under the vase - it seems so unnatural. Otherwise, beautifully arranged and lit, and I think the slightly cooler lead image is my fav.

Very nicely presented Still Life, V1 just swings it ,
wonder if just a subtle addition of " Noise " might enhance the aged look?

Are the books from different sets, as the Titles are different colours?

Thank you David, its very rare I add noise but that might work well.
I will give it a try next time.
No the books are all from one set even the one out of the box and under the vase, You have made me go and look at them, they are a set of Readers Digest from 1959. Older than me, makes them antique 😉😁

I like each version for different reasons, but have chosen the version as my favourite because of the warmth of the gold on the dressing table set, the more yellow colour of the pear, and the extra definition in the embroidery on the tablecloth.

Very nicely set up, Diane and both images have their merits but, V1 with its extra depth of colour, does it for me.
