Having bought this old book a few weeks ago for the princely sum of £2.99 I thought it was time I used it in a photo. I must look it up - the date inside says 1897 - so it's quite old
Not sure if I should tone down the candle flame?

Lovely shot !!!.....nice arrangement & lighting !!
I like #2 it has more in it to interest me and the base of the candlestick is not lost in deep shadow.
Yes version 2 for me also.
I like the lighting and composition.
V1 for me, i like the shadows and the old feel to it, the grapes seem out of place with al the other objects being so old. I ike the flame its a second interest point.
Also i see V1 as having a shallower DOF drawing us onto the book, which we could read if we picked up the glasses.
Good choice to eat the grapes
Thanks folks - I'm still undecided which one I prefer - nothing new there
There are considerably less grapes now than there were earlier this evening - there'll be even less by this time tomorrow!
It made quite a nice change to use that lens - I'm not sure I've used it on a still life pic before!
V2 for me
Prefer v2 too.
I am also undecided.
They are two totally different images, and I don't think one should be chosen above the other, since they are both very good.
V1 has an ancient aura about it, and v2 looks like you dropped in on a scholar from the 1800s. The grapes aren't at all objectionable, since I'm sure they were a favorite snack in that era.
They certainly didn't have granola bars
