perfect natural light and the shadows are "there but not to much" (pfff difficult in English)

As with the 12 August imagery, there is a mysterious heart of darkness or whiteness studies echo to the "barrier" or "steps" blocking, enticing and leading the viewer up to the porcelain vases/decanters--or are these crematorium jars? And god separated the light from the darkness.... Very fine works you've made here.

Like the steps going up, leading to the offerings. Very nice lighting, showing the lines of the steps.

I like your composition here and the lighting on the essential parts of your subject at the top. Nicely done.
