The Box

By chase
A closer view of one of my latest additions, a little wooden box.
The lace thing is a kind of scarf which I picked up in a charity shop for 50p it has a lace rose at each end, very pretty.

Taken in daylight, camera left ontop of a little oak, gate leg table, also found in a charity shop.
The bg is my wallpaper with a slight texture/colour overlay.

3 frame HDR combined in Photomatix and finished with a few tweaks in Photoshop.

Many thanks for taking the time to call in.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.

Stay safe everyone.

You're keeping your charity shops in business - beautifully arranged
with a story for all to interpret.

Another beautiful composition Janet, and to me it's got a kind of Edwardian feel about it (or perhaps I've got too vivid an imagination). That wooden box is gorgeous....what a find!!

This is going to be the way for all of us to go, I think, Janet...

Meticulous work at a small scale.

I think that piece of material is just perfect, and I envy your box Grin As usual, your composition is perfect and the processing spot on! I guess we'll all have a bit more time on our hands at the moment for this kind of creativity, which is no bad thing. Ho hum ... back to working in me PJs Grin
Beautifully thought out and composed love the post processing

Thanks all.
Geoff, great to have your UA, many thanks.
Thank you for the mod Carol, it's certainly different, perhaps a touch heavy for me but if we all did the same things, life would be very boring.
