    Pete, this impresses me MUCH.
    Reminds me of the DorlingKindersley books that I love so much, and of their sharp and clean photographic illustration. I always like just the object and the white background in those, too!!! Only there they are in colour. But the b+w is perfect here! WOW.

    Well, as you would expect, reflections were a challange. I surrounded the pots with white seemless paper and cut a whole for the lens. Burnt through some Polaroid checking the reflections and ratio. Color balance was tricky too (yup, Corinna... it's color!), so I got as close as I could using CC filters and OF COURSE... tweeked it in Photoshop.

    Thanks for all the kind words!

    ooooooo... I'm not a wealthy man. It's the W.

    I can remember only one macro job that came my way. Nice to find someone who can appreciate this aging gear.

    Oh, there are so many things that I can appreciate. Helps me to see an awful lot more about someone than you would credit. ;)
