Eye came Eye saw Eye Conkerd

By Tonksfest
Hi folks, I visited Lotherton Hall in Leeds. My mission was to find a conker with it's shell part intact. Fortunately I discovered one in thick foliage. I brought the conker home and using natural window light with some left hand side reflection captured three images of the conker being left, centre and right then used photoshop to bring all three images together. All comments welcome. Mickey.

Like it a lot, my only niggle is I would like more light on the left conker, but the lighting on the middle and right one is perfect.

Great idea and the magical three of course. I have to agree with Sus, a little more light required on the left conker. Love the title! You deserve a vote for the title alone!

Hi, Sus and Hi Andrew, THANKYOU for your kind and constructive comments, I now realise the left conker needs to be lightened. Kind regards, Mickey.

I think this works the best of the three versions - well balanced and placed in the frame
