The Connoisseur

By cattyal  
I went over to Tewkesbury today to bumble around the various junk/antique shops there. There are rather a lot - maybe 7 if not more. I gave myself a budget of £50 to spend and guess how much I spent?

£1 - yep - one whole pound on a 1908 copy of The Connoisseur - I am a big spender you know.

Anyway I figured I'd put it with a few other old bits and bobs though doubt any of the props are as old as the magazine.

I finally downloaded the software for the Huey the other evening - now I have absolutely no idea whether this looks ok or not - I'm sure you'll let me know. The display is considerably different to what I'm used to - hopefully for the better......

A beautiful blend of objects, colours and textures, a pound well spent I would say,

You prove that still life is as much in the choice of subject as it is in specialist lighting setup and so on. Great shot. ....Peter
A great still life with wonderful colours, it was a pound well spent.

Thanks everyone Smile

I'm going to do some image comparisons on different monitors and then keep the resulting files for reference. Maybe I'll run a few prints off this one later today and see if WISIWIG applies or not Smile

How strange - I've just come back to this one - first time since yesterday - and it looks absolutely awful. Way brighter than it appeared yesterday and the sides of the hat are a mess too. It'll be interesting to see what it looks like on the monitor at work tomorrow!

I agree V2 is definitely best. I plan to play with this lot again this weekend - hopefully I'l find a few new props on my Saturday hunt Smile
