Get Pushed Challenge #445
My get pushed partner this week said "I'd like you, for your get pushed this week, to find some of your clutter and do a still live in the style of an old master painting ( if that doesn't appeal just do a still life with the items)". The light was particularly challenging. Too bright with the shades open, too dark with them closed. The background was tough too. I had to deal with that in photoshop, and didn't do that well. I did enjoy digging around the stuff to see what I could use that I hadn't used before.
@30pics4jackiesdiamond I hope this is ok. I really couldn't get it together to do this photo. It was challenging to do for some reason. Thanks for the challenge. Hope we do it again (challenge each other).

Beautiful display and still life capture.

I think you did a great job Kathy! Yes, with a little more cloning you could get that white block out of the background but it's not absolutely necessary- the arrangement in the front does a nice job of holding your interest. Very pretty!

@30pics4jackiesdiamond Thank you and He. I appreciate it.
@suez1e Thank you.
@linnypinny Thank you.
@jernst1779 Thank you. This is china that my husband brought back from England for his mother when he was stationed there in the early 70's.
@grammyn Thank you very much Katy.
@kjarn Thank you Kathy.
@pyrrhula Thank you Ferry.
@olivetreeann I fiddled with the background for awhile. I didn't want to lose the glow of the candle flames and that's what happened when I tried to change it. Thank you.
@thewatersphotos Thank you so much Gary.
@aikiuser Thank you Jenn.
@mona65 Thank you. The research I did talked about the lighting. I'm glad you think I got it in the photo.
@wakelys Thank you Susan. As Jackie said, just some old junk I had lying around the house.
@jb030958 Thank you. I believe it's Royal Doulton. My husband bought it in England and gave it to his mother while he was in the service.
@tosee Thank you Tom.
@haskar Thank you Hannah.
