May be it would be better to change te left and middle picture, but I am not sure.
Fine colours though. And it is a wonderful object for a triptych.

Thanks for the suggestion. I tried a variety of positions, but nothing seemed quite right.

Such a cool subject Esther and beautifully captured. Love the colour tone you've gone with too, but might have suggested flipping the image of the left to make it look into the image? Just a thought! :)

Esther has replied to autofantasia
Thanks. I tried moving the images around, but nothing seemed to work well. There is something unsettling about having the image stare out of the frame. Staring into it's body did not work much better. I think that the solution was to pick a different subject for the triptych.

BTW, I appreciate all suggestions on how to improve my photography.

ivory?

Esther has replied to Michelle Ress
No, it is stone. Ivory means an elephant died, so I don't buy it.
