Weighed In

By chase
Two types of scales, one speaks for itself, the smaller one was in an earthenware pot amongst rusty stuff. I think it would be used for weighing either luggage or maybe a fisherman would use it for weighing his catch.
Lit by daylight from almost behind.

An HDR image, 3 frames combined in Lightroom and finished in Photoshop.

I wanted to go really dark for this one with the light hitting the bg.
Nothing is 'straight' on this image, the scales are on the wonk and I couldn't fix it, so there it is Wink

Thanks for dropping by.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.

Loving the wonk Grin. If it had been mine (I wish!) I might have clipped a tiny bit off the left to tidy up the base, but then I am just looking for things to pick on GrinGrinWinkTongue
