As the sun shone through the window this morning it caused these shadows to be cast over this flute and music book, I thought it made a nice composition for my 'True Blue' series of experiments, after some tweaking in PSP7 this was the final result, I hope you like it.

Another good shot. I lie the lighting and the compo. Great shot!

Ah, beautifully gentle, this image, Mark! Well seen and well photographed as always. Adding the soft blue blur really helped!

Mark I just adore all of your shots and this is no exception, to have your 'eye' I would die for it. Well done seems so inadequate to say, you are a true master of the camera.

Great shot Mark - looks like it has been taken at night - got that sort of midnight blue look with soft light coming through the window. Great experiment. Have an idea for a WS... see what you think.

Good catch. The soft look gives creates a moody pix.

Soft focus and dappled light make for a very lovely image, nostalgic and musical in nature!

I like the subtle lighting and colour of this one Mark. The arrangement is very efective and creates a nice mood. Well done.

I looked the WS and it is, for me, better. Warm color is nice. The composition of you picture is also interesting, with all these shadows, that give a soft and calm ambiance.

Lovely soft lighting, without any glare on the music sheet. The dapple shadows creative a nice atmosphere. Very nicely composed.
Well done.

beautifull very poetic...congratulations....love the blue tone.

Mark: I've been looking around at your images...more to go, this has stopped me. You did a very nice job with this. I know that you do not shoot using strobes, finding this type of natural light is sometimes hard to find, good eye.

When I'm asked to photograph something like this, of course I would have to used strobe, reflector, mirrors or what ever it took to recreate the type of light you found. It takes time and a lot of experimenting to learn how to create the type of delicate light you found naturally.

I'll continue looking at your work and if you have any questions just ask. If I don't answer, it's because I have not leaned the in's and out's of this web site.
