Shot in my father's basement. It's not a proper still life shot, because I just removed a few things and moved a few around, majority was already there - he enjoys arranging tons of antique things around the place. Edited in Topaz, plus some contrast adjustment.
***************
Whoaaaa! Finished 11th with a non-typical still life image! I'm so proud to be placed among such fine photographs! The skull did its magic, now I can return her to the dark wizard...

Thank you for all the comments and votes!

Thought this was an amazing shot. Congrats on the 11th, but I agree with Ahmeed, this should have been higher.

A wonderful shot by all means, this underscored in my humble opinion,
I think the only thing missing is some extra sharpening and contrast. HDR looks very tempting to try on this set. Thats said, a wonderful shot that is a very well composed and captured,
Cheers,

Pleased to see this did well for you. I gave it an 8, but wasn't sure how it would sit with the majority of voters.

Pretty good still life, if this is your garage, very interesting to say the least.

A little bit soft but I like the interplay of chaos and order.
