    The first shot your white balance is off. The white is REALLY pink. The second shot is better by far but still off a little bit. I did a quick levels adjustment just selected the white of your back ground and here are the results. Gah flickr is taking forever to upload I will post it in just a minute.

    The motorcycle shot is nice but a little over exposed.

    IMO lightboxes are good for one thing:




    ebay.


    It's quick, dirty, yet not professional enough to look like it's an image pulled off of Google.

    You should probably look into an aftermarket safety. I'm surprised that Taurus didn't put something with a little more surface area on there from the factory. Also, that rather deep-looking scratch in the bluing on the underside of the slide isn't encouraging; you might want to have it looked at by a good 1911 smith, and consider having the whole thing slicked up and refinished.

    As for the picture quality, I think that's been covered pretty well.
