I find this a breathtakingly beautiful shot. The time and patience that went into setting it up and the flawless execution are superlative (having uploaded my first attempt just the other day, I am cringing Blush). It has definitely inspired me to have another go. I am interested to see you didn't use a flash, but suspect you might have some special lighting? studio? Fabulous.
PS Your whole portfolio is full of wonderment....you have a new fan here!

Hi- Thank you so much for such encouraging feedback, it is very much appreciated. Re. lighting -
There is one main source of light to the left which is just an anglepoise lamp through fleecy plastic sheet strectched across a window shape cut out of board. To the right of the arrangement is a standard large white circular reflector. The rest was selectively lit during the long exposure with a Maglite on narrow beam eg the Dutch Roemer and Pheasant.
Cheers,
Gary

Just come across this almost by accident. Quite simply one of the best photo still life images that I have seen on this or any other site. The 'look' is that of the Dutch Master painters and you have achieved this superbly.
I have taken a quick glance at your PF and it all looks very very good ( will look properly after work).
