    For this week’s challenge, post photos using metal objects as your subjects. Be aware of reflections - use them or control them. Try several different angles of the same subject. Bonus points if you use studio lighting.

    As always, new photos only for the challenge please. Get out there and shoot!

    Maybe think smaller. Utensils, ornaments, jewelry, tools, doorknobs, car trim, chrome, copper, brass...

    Ooops, too late. I shot these today on a ride but am planning to do something small later in the week to once again practice focus stacking.

    Memorial Bridge is adorned with several massive gilded bronze statues. Right now they are a little greenish but after a good polishing they really shine in bright sun.

    For this wider shot I should have waited until golden hour but could not stick around for three hours:
