    What's your opinion?

    Debating whether these look better in B&W...

    They're pretty much already monochrome...

    With a little more work, I think they would be very cool (especially the last one).

    I would clone in some 'light' on the dark section of the lamp (under the bulb), and clone out the stem. And maybe darken the lamp up just a little (maybe).

    Then (to me) it would look like a full moon over sand dunes.
    More so on the last one, because of the shape of the fabric (?).

    I think the orangish color help give the effect of sand dunes.

    I just realized that I posted this in the wrong section................


    I was thinking about playing around with the a little. Especially taking the lamp stem out.

    I also was going for the moon over sand dunes, so it's nice to hear that someone else thought that. :)

    Let's see what I can do with these...

    With the stem and that dark section under the bulb cloned out, I think it would be pretty hard to tell that it isn't sand dunes...

    I like that. The only other thing I might change is the orangish WB - but only around the light.

    Pretty cool, but I like it better where you CAN see the light stand ... just a bit, not a ton ... because it suggests the sand dunes/desert without trying to outight dupe us into thinking that's what it is.

    VERY creative.

    IMO, I think cloning out the small shadow in the light made it look a vectored white circle. Adding a little texture to the light might give a little more realism.
