This is the second version of the photo. I used some comments i received from the photo and made it better. I already posted it on another photography page and i've received many great comments on this version. The staff has more details visible. in the older version it was too dark on the lower section and too bright at the edges. Now it's much more balanced. Illumination on the books seems better too. There are no more over exposed brightness. The light is much more balanced over the books as well. The composition is much batter also. In the previous version there were too many "writings" in the photo and it would distract people from the main theme of the photo: the staff. I also used an advice i got, as i had a red and blue book in the previous photo, i was told to insert a green book to the picture and therefore unify the 3 main colous (Red, Green, Blue - RGB)
Used some old books i had around plus the description sheets that came with Saruman's Staff and the Anduril sword. The books are most in french or portuguese. Sorry about that
No old english books. Only one about Edgar Allan Poe, but that one isn't old. You can see it on the picture. It's the green book on the upper-center spot.
And yes, the staff is real. It's hung on my wall
I've been thinking in changing this for a wallpaper. Opinions are most wellcome.
