    I set up two lights, one just a window, the other a weak overhead light, and one white reflector (a.k.a. a piece of paper :)). Unfortunately not a whole lot of shots came out well, but a couple turned out allright. I'll just post those if yall dont mind :D

    here are the experimental shots (most of the 'experiments' were done in photoshop, but some where done with just WB changes on the camera):

    I really like these shots; especially the first because of the vibrant color in the death of the flower. Did you do anything special for the sheeted background like crumple it up and then hang it?

    I'd have to go with the first one here. I think the color really stands out and makes a really nice exposure.

    thanks john, the first one is probably my favorite, the first three were the ones that turned out similar to how i wanted them.

    Awesome work.

    I like the one with the reddish hint the most.

    keep up the great work.

    I hate you. I tried something like this a couple of months ago when I was testing my new camera and they weren't a patch on these. Grrr. :grumpy: :mrgreen:

    I'm suprised they haven't go more comments. They're all very good. I love the texture. You've controlled the light and the shadows really show them up well.
