The old prayer boook

By saxon_image  
I found these old family prayer books, all Victorian while tidying and thought that their battered and aged appearance might work for a still life. A very simple and basic set-up -the books are sat on an old cushion cover on top of another book for height and the background is a marble pattern tray, all within a cheap light tent and lighting is ambient plus a single off-camera flash from the right at about 45 degrees downwards. My usual DxO and NIK processing. After taking the shot I realised that the open book had, completely unintentionally, opened at a very appropriate page for the current situation.
