smile Your title sounds like an assignment for an art class! Just what it is! I do like how the lamp illuminates the petals from behind!
Bill Phillips: I thought I would be arty grin

Could be that, Bill...In this light, though, you might have shot a python on a rug...
Bill Phillips: Hahahahaha

And a vase too.

Funny word vase, it must send people learning English round the bend. I have heard it pronounced in several different ways too..

Whereabouts did you take this?
Bill Phillips: Standen. A National Trust House in Sussex

It's amazing how much you can see in such low light, Bill!
Bill Phillips: Lightroom helps Ginnie
On my taste, excellent Bill, no need to abuse light
Bill Phillips: Indeed JC

a very elegant still-life - a bunch of flowers for Angela! Or are we in a NT manor house where I saw often those beautiful, fresh bunches?
Bill Phillips: Yes we are in a NT property Philine...Standen in Sussex

I especially like the black cat sat on the right. A fine portrait which shows his sleek body.
Bill Phillips: Looks like you and Ray both went to Specsavers
I like the window light and the lamp light the best.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Jacquelyn

Alan sees a 'black cat and his sleek body'! Am I blind, sorry, I don't see any cat! And neither Elizabeth nor Gutteridge nor Ray, all passionate catlovers, saw a cat!
Bill Phillips: I think Alan needs new glasses Philine smile
We're gonna need a bigger bulb....
Bill Phillips: This is the National Trust....they only have little bulbs

Austerity in the NT house... got to keep the electricity bills down
Bill Phillips: Have to protect the artefacts from strong light comrade
Really like the pockets of light you've captured here, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Thank you Beverly
Doesn't matter where this was taken, it is an excellent image bill, your monochrome conversion is very well done. Three house points and move to the top of the class.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Brian. For the record it was Standen in Sussex
