This is the same goblet that I uploaded prior to Christmas day.
Subject to the comment and advice I received then, I have retaken shots of the goblet, hopefully having learned something from the critique and advice provided.
The shots taken again in the workshop, but with a different background
Each version is the result of varying exposure compensation & backlighting the background.
V1 has been placed upon a new white canvas & framed and is a fairly accurate colour of the finished article.
The cut & paste and crop of V1, and the crop of V2&3, is the only alteration work done in PC CS4.
In all other respects each one is 'straight out of the camera'.
