Interesting picture, makes me wonder how long the bottles were laid down for. Good detail and well worth taking. Could do with a little more overall sharpness (when viewed full size) but you were greatly restricted to f4.5 given the light as I notice you needed to up the ISO to 6400. Your hand was steady enough at 1/30sec so maybe 12800 ISO giving you a little more DoF at f5.6 would have solved the LHS edge of the lower case.

No sharpening has been applied as I made the decision to keep noise to a minimum and the slight softness I feel is in keeping with the image. As to using 12800 ISO I must confess that I had the 70D set to auto ISO and Iam still getting use to using it in that mode
Thanks for your constructive criticism as it's always welcome

I good think about digital photography is that you can fiddle around with all the knobs at dials at nil cost. So it's taking it off auto and see what you can do with manual control of the ISO. One downside of having the 2000px wide images now is that warts and all get seen which where much less evident when restricted to a smaller size. In this case, the noise is quite apparent so Frank's suggesting of reducing the ISO is good. I hope for the NT's sake, any woodworm have long gone from those boxes.

Some useful and constructive comments already given, so food for thought there.
A nice study but my thoughts would have been to not hand hold the camera, if possible get somewhere to set it down for a longer exposure. Not always possible but at least to try and take several pictures with different settings to see how they come out.
Anyway certainly some busy woodworm's, I hope they vacated the wood long ago, for the sake of the rest of the building.

The noise is quite evident as has been mentioned, but, I think it adds to the 'old feel' of the shot as does the softness.
An interesting shot with differing comments, so well done for that Steve
I think on the whole you achieved your objective and I like it.
