Baptism Still Life

By gingerdelight    
We attended a Baptism this morning, where my husband was Godfather to a lovely little girl. I was asked to do the photos, and before the ceremony I noticed the silver shell that is used during the baptism, in readiness on the edge of the font. I thought it made a rather nice monotone, still life shot.

Thank you for your continued comments and votes which are very welcome.

One of your best uploads ever, it's beautifully composed and taken. Just enough foreground, just enough background for depth, perfect exposure on hard metallic sheen.

Ditto the above comments, well not actually the "Oh goodness! I'm blushing now!" naturally! A very beautiful image which I would image will be greatly treasured.

Very lovely, Carol. The curve of the font bowl echoes that of the silver 'shell' in a most satisfying fashion. A simple (=good) and memorable composition in perfect black & white.

Hi Carol
I'm looking for a plate for collecting jewelry of my clients before giving them a massage.
I'm afraid; the one on your picture is too dear for this purpose Smile
Cheers
