The tight frame is putting the lantern in evidence. Using the black and white is allowing me to see with precision the details and colours of the lantern. Well done, have a nice day.

S'agit-il d'une lanterne magique ! En tout cas, le cadrage serré est parfait ainsi que le choix du noir et blanc pour donner toutes les subtilités du sujet.
Très bonne journée.

The black and white and tight framing is quite effective in this composition. The details of the lantern stand well and I like this brillant spot on uo left corner.

Nice b&w capture of this old lantern. Most probably it has it's origins somewhere in North Africa or Arabic peninsula.
TFS and best regards

like this! A really inspiring B&W study of this old lantern. The textures and detailing are wonderful but it is the light and the way it plays on the surfaces that makes it so compelling and beautiful. Excellent!

very cool and great close-up. very well framed with perfect light management. strips of wood in the bg creates a nice contrast with the floral patterns of the lantern in the fg.
congratulations and thank you!

Great shot for black and white, and your frame works excellent along with the strong vertical lines behind. They both serve to emphasize the fine details of the lantern.
All the best

A superb composition, showing us in great detail this beautiful bluff, I love the work on the metal draft, is a wonderful work.
The most appropriate framework, highlights the work.
Very good light and perfect sharpness to view details.
I wish you a good evening.

A good close up work in mono with this unique lantern creating another spectacle, excellent shapes and patterns and textures. But the glow of light creates a nice contrast as well as enhancing the solid state very well. Congrats

Geia sou Chris
Many compliments because you captured by the rules book, without any overexposure, this fine piece of silverware wich antique design is juxtaposed to the modern pattern of verticals for a paradoxal tableau!
