Fantastic...love the mood, the textures and lighting! . . . fav/v59
Gorgeous piece! I am sharing on Facebook. v/f/ FB
Beautiful. Love the textures present in the subjects but I also like the textures you added. Well done. /v
Fantastic composition Pierre! The textures are so incredibly well suited to the subject and such a perfect play on words in this title to go along with it. There is a wonderful mystical feel to this piece!
Sorry for the weighty discourse, but you are doing some neat things with textures!
(The antique treatment highlights the incongruity and age of once venerable ubiquitous bound and printed format / source of knowledge - in light of the instantaneous and transient "cloud" and disk and drive and network modern repositories of data in the information and digital ages - ironically both captured visually and rendered artistically via means of modern technology)
Love how it almost looks like worn leather . .. how you are not afraid to obscure most of the image, love the subtle shaft of light atop the books, love how it genuinely looks like a photo taken and then weather beaten and crinkled slightly over time and faded, the old chemicals changing after time .. . . .like this even better than the other of books! Representative of old tomes weighty with knowledge, ancient bindings and pages and tales or studies or histories enfolded in their leaves or dusty annals of learning - reservoirs of possible learning and as their essential and inherent nature, the power through time of bound and printed word - concept more so than a particular, specific still life. We know not the titles, nor even the language, mystery and ambiguity lending themselves to the surface of the over-arcing concept.
