Bottles and Pears
Gelatin-silver photograph on Fomabrom Variant 111 FB VC, image area 24.7cm X 19.6cm, from a Fomapan 200 negative exposed in a Tachihara 8x10 camera with a 400mm single meniscus soft focus lens set at f11.
Sadly the bottles are empty but the pears are ripening nicely.

Pretty good there Maris. Did you think of filling, or half filling some, or all of the bottles for effect?

Regardless, the softness makes this, gives it a lift it would not have with a super sharp image.

Very nice.
