Silent Sunday – In the Gloom

In the gloom

In the gloom


  1. I was going to take a break from commenting as I gallivant all over the world, and then you post this wonderful Dutch masters photo. Everything about it is perfect, including the composition in the first place. My favourite of all my favourites amongst photos of yours, and so different from those delicate poppies.

    Forgive me for only the occasional “like” over the next week – maybe six weeks if the connection is unbearably slow at my daughter’s (the Australian one this time)

      Hoho…sorry to distract you! Glad you like this, I’m a bit ambivalent about it. And we may have Cybele to thank/blame as she got me thinking about darker images…..

  2. Once again, the feel of an ‘Old Master’ painting. Brilliant.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. I really like this, love the lighting, something I want to do at some stage.

  4. Wonderful use of chiarascuro Sue

  5. It really is like Dutch master’s photo, Sue, and so well done! I don’t think I’ve seen a similar type of photo. Now if you would have just added a dead chicken and some fruit… 🙂

    I’m not ambivalent but was moved to say how moving this still life is.

  7. Beautifully lit, Sue. I think it is daylight. I think I see a window reflected in the jar. Beautiful still life photo!

  8. Such a lovely image, Sue. I has a wonderful glow. 🙂

  9. That’s very nice, makes me think of Game of Thrones! Seems a great visual for a story or cover. 🙂 Good job.

  10. It reminds me of paintings I’ve seen as well, impressive Sue!

  11. I really like low key photography Sue. This is a lovely example!

    Intriguing atmosphere Sue !

  13. Wow!!
    Superb photography! I like the composition, the light, everything is great. 🙂

      Thanks, Cosme – I’m trying to get the hang of low key, and judging by the comments I’m getting I must be doing something right! 🙂

  14. I’m intrigued that you have such objects to create your moody photos with, Sue. That loft of yours must be an interesting place 🙂

  15. Absolutely gorgeous!!! It does really look like a painting, the light is just sensational! 😀 😀 😀

  16. I love this Sue, very much my sort of thing, only natural light and all that atmosphere, just perfect!
