    Hi Milord

    This is the 4th, the 5th will represent dotage - unless my own dotage prevents me!

  • The Seven Ages of Man 2 & 3

    Many thanks for the comments.

    I get the points about the seamless background, but I wanted to show the ups & downs of life, especially towards the end (I'm in the 7th stage). I cannot see how to combine them effectively.

    I'm intrigued by the rules of Still Life Pamela mentioned - what could they be?

    I've posted (hopefully) a final version to the non-critique section of EP.

  • The Seven Ages of Man

    Thanks to everyone for their feedback - especially Fiona.

    Dudler - great minds think alike! Originally I was going to use one of those day-by-day pill boxes but it was too big
    Fiona - I've had a quick look at the Flickr group you mentioned and bookmarked it for later, closer examination. One thing that struck me was that a lot of the pictures had a "painterly" feel to them.
    Paul - I put the card & the family photo on top of the student text books to add height. Perhaps studenthood is too close in age to engagement/early marriage!

    Thanks to everyone for the comments.

    Dudler - the picture of the soldier was taken at a WW2 enactment (American uniform) and the tank is an early WW2 tank, so historically they are of a similar era. Unfortunately the tank was British because I couldn't find a German tank outdoors to take a picture of - but I think the idea stands. I understand your doubts about making a joke in a war context - put it down to the urge to create, I feel a bit guilty now.

    I don't normally "like" photos of other people's artwork, but this is very atmospheric. It is much more than a record shot, your creative input is very large. The lighting is very good - I like it a lot.
