Part of my collection of bottles, none of which are straight !

Taken inside a light tent ( I dug that out of the depths of the wardrobe ) lit on both sides by two light boxes.
The Poppy seed heads are from my garden, I sprinkled the tiny seed before bringing them indoors, hopefully some of next years' flowers.

Raw file converted in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop.

Thanks for dropping by. Constructive critique and mods most welcome.

Not often a Still Life makes me laugh out loud, this is so wonderfully batty. The vertical bottles seem to be trying to make sense of the hyperactive poppy heads, while two bottles have given up and collapsed in confusion

A very well composed still life.

Now, you either manipulated those poppy stalks or trained them to be so random. Inspired. Drunken bottles and wonky poppies. Terrific. Smile

Or is it drunken poppies and wonky bottles ? Wink
The Poppy stalks are as they came out of the garden, they are quite lovely shapes.

Thank you for your UA day I will get on that aeroplane Wink

I find a light tent diffuses the light which then cuts out lots of glare on shiny objects, glass, vases etc. and I have control of the light.
