Caravaggio light? (Decaying flowers and old tin box 2)

Light just a tad better today, played around a bit to allow a deeper depth of field, and this is what I came up with, but not there yet! I still want to lead the eye in, and not sure that’s happening yet.

But I might give up at this point, who knows?



  1. Lovely capture, Sue. You always manage to find such beauty in decay. 🙂

  2. Sue, you and I share a reverence for the finale of a flower, which in the case of many dried ones is a point of rest. Your image is an apt example of how dried flowers can be stunning in this last stage. Enjoyed your composition and the contrasts of reds against the greens.

  3. I much prefer this to the previous shot of that arrangement. But you knew that already. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. Lovely! And very Caravaggio 🙂

  5. Oh I like that Sue.
    I’m not great at this type of shot and couldn’t think of a suggestion on your other shot, but this one is great – the warmth is definitely here

  6. I’d be satisfied with that but I suspect you are a perfectionist. It’s lovely. I did walk after all and the heather was blooming lovely xx

  7. Love the deep, rich colors, Sue, and the arrangement is, as usual, lovely.

    I like this, Sue, especially the colors. I wonder if you tilted the box a little bit if it would create the leading line you want to draw the eye in?

  9. Wonderfully classical. The rich darks are just yummy!

  10. Very rich composition. Well Done!

  11. Beautiful
    Continue experimenting until you reach the mood or look you are looking for.

  12. This is a beautiful still life. I really like the dark red tones up against the faded green of the box.

  13. Those ruby tones of the flowers are so lovely; maybe angle the box a bit so its side edge lines up with the row of embroidery? Then the keyhole would not be dead ahead. But you are the mistress of still life and decay whereas I have no idea what I am talking about!
