Straight from the camera bar a very basic photoshop tweak. Colours and shadows are correct.
Interesting shot ferny. Something about the matches bothers me, but I can't put my finger on it...
I'll try and come back and look at it again later and see if I can pin it down for ya.
They're a bit over exposed I think.
More the placement I think, but.... [shrug]
I don't get it. How did you get it to float? Edit out whatever was holding it up?
I posted this photo on another forum and they asked something similar. So this is a dirrect copy and paste of my reply there.
Ouch, I'm lazy!
Basic means clicking on the auto contrast button, cropping and resizing then saving. All it did was make the very front of the base whiter. The noise is from the compression I think. Lighting was a 40w desk lamp and the slow sync flash mode. The camera's white balance was set to tungsten. Because the light from the lamp wasn't in the shadows they stayed blue from the flash. The base is one sheet of A4 photo paper and the match box was stuck to it with a bit of blue tack.
