Rather than remove yesterday's upload, with all of it's valuable comment, and conscious that on previous occasions people have said that they couldn't remember what had been said, this is V2.
I've tried to take on board Willie's, Chris & Anne's advice from yesterday.
I've based everything on getting the histogram (exposure) right. Then balanced light with shutter speed. All settings are Manual
I've maintained aperture at f10 to ensure DoF.
A slightly different composition from yesterday
Also black base board
Brown textured backboard
Continuous bottle light rather than flash
Infill bounce flash, without compensation
Simply cleaned up in PS ~ no sharpening
I hope this is something like right.
It's taken over four hours to get to this.
