The stock market by Peter Zentjens

It’s another bad day (yet again) on the stock markets the perfect time to show you my latest still life in the “nostalgia” series, entitled: the stock market.
As usual, old and new elements are mingled together. The painted with light technique was used again, as well as digital manipulation to get the end result I was after.
It’s strange, I spent months planning this shot, preparing and getting the props and then in a few hours time it’s shot. It’s almost an anti-climax.
Well, I hope you enjoy it!
By the way, this is the fourth installment in this series, I’m withholding the second one which I consider my masterpiece in this series. I’ll probably upload it in a few days.

    Peter, your attention to details – composition, light, balance, and color – is remarkable. Wonderful work

  • Thank you so much Alteredlllus. I spent a lot of time on the details, that’s true, but that’s the part I love so much.

    Ik wacht met ongeduld op je meesterwerk
    dit is zeker al fantastisch belicht

  • Bedankt majo / thanks majo,
    but the more I look at this one, the more I’m starting to doubt which of the two I favor. On top of that: tastes differ, so, I should upload the (for the moment) final one and let the community decide for itself.
    Of course, the question of which one to add to the masterpiece group remains in that case…

    Your months of planning paid off my friend…great set-up!

  • Thank you very much William!
    It really does help to have to object in house for a while before you start working with it.
