The Day Time Ran Out

By chase
Hi Peeps, it's been a while Blush
Taken today in controlled daylight. 3 frames combined in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop.

The Pigeon wing I found in the street, looks like a life ending cat attack, feathers all over the road !
The little timer was sent to me by a far away ePz friend, for which I thank him Smile

Yep, a dark still life, I like dark Wink

Thanks for remembering to call by.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.

Welcome back. Great composition, but too dark and macabre for me.

Still life with dark depth. Most languages refer to the genre as 'nature morte', dead nature, which often seems more apposite.

Looks like time ran out for the egg a good while back.

It took me a while to read the time on the watches upside down.
Welcome back Janet, I have missed your terrific still life images!

I like this very much, but would love it if you balanced it out with a counterpart ‘The day the light returned’ 🌟 The skill here is excellent but the energy just too dark on its own. You create fine work.

Everything is finite and runs out of time.
Welcome back, Janet - good to see you posting again.

Hey! Good to see you back. I thought of you this very morning as I struggled with a complex image. I was trying to move existing flowers on to a different vase for a commission!! Blush. I have done it but there is a lot of faffing still to do Grin
This has all your high quality trademarks. Great stuff. You have been missed.

Good to see your work again, Janet. A very sombre and symbolic still life , the generally dark tone nicely sets off the blue sand in the timer, and I like how the elements of your arrangement all lead into the finished sand pile of the timer.
Excellent,
James

Well put together, as we've come to expect Smile
But I added small Levels and Curves adjustments to boost contrast and make the most of the details.
