The remains of the flowers, and depth of field

Well, the flowers that have kept me occupied recently are all but over, but here are three more Still Life images, one with the tin box, and the second two images with some different props.

The much anticipated sunlight appeared for a short while, so I was able to get some interesting shadow patterns… Out of these, the first is lovely for the richness of colour, but I like the last one for the limited depth of field and the general composition.

What do you think?

  1. Nice choice. Lovely photos!

  2. Man and Nature – wonderful juxtaposition and shots.

  3. Today I don’t have a favorite. I like them all: the color and perspective in the first, the slightly older look of the second compared to the third, the richness of color and light of the third compared to the second, and the embroidered piece you used as base in all of them. Happy Friday.

      Thank you very much, Janet! I have had a lot of enjoyment creating these images, and that old linen tablecloth, embroidered by one of my great aunts many years ago has proved to be a great backdrop…..

  4. The spout in the first one leads my eye away. So, I am with you, and the last one is my favourite.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    have a penchant for DOF so I like the last one best …but then again colours zap in the first not least on that embroidered cloth

  6. All are lovely, but especially like the third one.

  7. They have done you well these so-called finished flowers. I like the first image, probably my favourite of all of them over all the posts. I like the blurred box in the background. I bet you are sick of sweeping up all those bits by now though 😀

  8. Oh that first one definitely has my vote Sue – it’s a stunner!!

  9. They’re all lovely, Sue, but I have a soft spot for the first. 🙂 🙂

  10. gorgeous work Sue!! I love them all.

  11. These flowers have certainly been great value Sue. Another lovely set of photographs!

  12. The background blur offers mystery in the first image. The second has a feel of romance. The third offered the beauty of the needlework which did not grab my eye in the second. Nice study.

  13. These are so beautiful. A pity this is the end. The shadows did it for me.

  14. They’re gorgeous shots!
