Pumpkins and Garlic

By cattyal  
My attempt this afternoon at another self portrait was a dismal failure - can't win em all.....

Instead I thought I could at least attempt a still life with the very old garlic I've had for weeks and the mini pumpkins I bought last week.

Lit with light and barndoors to the left - piece of white foamboard to the right.

Still not 100% sure - I almost uploaded one version, changed my mind and tweaked it again - and shall doubtless change my mind again tomorrow......

Good triangular shape to your arrangement.
You could get so many images with this collection of objects.
The colours work well with each other.

A late thank you everyone Smile

Thank you too to Pete for the HC - to Phillip for your GEA and to everyone for the RC - very much appreciated Smile

I'm about to pop upstairs and try another one - well all the stuff is out so I may as well see what else I can come up with.

And yep - no problems with vampires in this house!
I like the old world feel to this photograph.SID.

Thank you Sid - and again thank you everyone Smile

I'm definitely going through a still life phase again - I'll get bored eventually and go back to the masks again )
Very nice ... I loved
