    I just found an old candle stand and set up a flash light to illuminate the wall behind it. The picture was shot as a RAW image and then desaturated to make it monochrome.

    Nicely done. I think I might prefer a crop which included all of the base and were levled, but I like this.

    @mwcfarms - The candle stand was slightly bent and I tried to keep the sharpest part of the picture to be level

    I'm not sure what you mean by the sharpest part being level - I don't see anything level. the baseboard of the floor behind the vase would be the most obvious indicator - it's far lower on the left than on the right. You could also draw a line from the center of the bottom of the vase to the center of the top of the vase and you'd see that it was not perfectly vertical.

    Yeah, it's definitely not level ... but really cool concept
