[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
You would never be able to see just how pretty this little store is by just looking at the outside of it. As soon as I stepped through the door, and onto the old wooden floor, I knew I was in my own miniature heaven.

It was a store that sold all handcrafted jewelery made from precious stones, gems and anything else you could imagine. It was heaven for any girl. There was also every colour, shape and size of hand blown glass made into decorative balls and lanterns. I was completely mesmerized by their beauty, almost to a hypnotic state!

Gosh Pamela this is great, I love those light catchers, they are so cool. I think the upper picture would have been perfect as a stand alone picture too. Great colors, great work

I agree with Marleen, Pamela... I too prefer the top picture. The light caught by these glass objects, and how they influence each other, is very nice to look at. The bottom picture is nice too, but a bit busy I think. TFS.

hi Pamela,
I liked both pictures :) I prefer each alone though..I feel like a white frame for the top one and a dark frame for the lower because of light..
thanks :)

I much prefer the top photo, although the bottom one gives the context. The DOF in the top photo is perfect. Thanks!

Great capture Pamela, and note. I like the top picture the best, the lighting is just perfect on the glass. The bottom picture is also very good, but as the others said the top would stand alone very well.

Mobiles très colorés....j'aime la prise du bas...avec vue sur l'extérieur...superbe prise...

Colorful glasswork; are they all handmade?

nice shot, pamela!i like all those different bright colours!the first pic i like the most.
good compo's and colours.well done!

Great catch of colour and light Pamela, I love coloured glass and also I like the way you have used a closeup and a distant shot to show off all items in their setting. Very well done.

The coloured glass is so pretty! I like both pictures and how you've combined them.

Also, I'm not sure why but I really like how the trees outside are winter trees. Maybe it's the contrast between the stark winter scene and the happy, pretty, colourful, well lit glass.

Lovely, and spiritual. Do colours have soul... here oh, yes. Great witch place :) good compo, and lights.

nice idea ! nice composition and beautiful colours effect. ciao Denis
