My first attempt with candlelight.

I was thinking about the home writing desk of a newly matriculated Oxford boy. On the left is an old trig text. He has a small desk (which he has outgrown), so he maximizes surface area by propping a book in the open drawer. In front of him, though, is book opened to a (scientific) diagram of female genitalia (boys will be boys). (There is a blank page on the right (presumably for taking notes). There is also rolled parchment, wax and stamp, a few pound and a few shilling coin, skeleton keys, a couple of nice burl pipes (one resting in a carved myrtle-wood ash bowl), pocket watch, service bell, a cup of tea, an emptied port glass, a couple of skulls, some reasonable texts, and his top hat resting on an African carving. It is indeed cluttered; I've never known a desk else wise.

This is a great setup! but the lamp in the shot ruined it for me. Well done!

Nice composition. Blown out highlights in a low light situation are tough. Perhaps a bit too sharpened. But can tell you really embraced the challenge.

Good photo but more than one light source.

Great composition. I like how the chair is turned slightly. Great use of the light.

This is a good setup. I don't think we need so much of the floor. I'd try a landscape crop of just the top half.
