Weights & Measure II

By 213hardy      
After yesterdays comments, i decided to re shoot this little scene, minus the glass and with slightly more spacing, much happier with the results. Grin

V2 a slightly different angle.

The indentations just under the rim of the Measure, are date stamps, put there by Customs, every time the measure was checked, they start at 24 (1924) and go up to 48 (1948),

All C&Cs welcome

Thanks for looking

Two excellent reflectionless images, Den!
I think V2, with the 'flatter' POV gets it for me today.

Version two for me also. The square crops also adds makes for a more balanced composition which in turn adds to the appeal.

Both are much, much more satisfying than yesterday's. I favour V2 too, I don't think they need too much space between them, and in V2 the longer shadow from the weights creates a base for the tankard to sit on.
One minor point - if you use fabric as a base it's worth ironing it first, ripples can be a bit distracting though that's not a major problem here.

Removing the glass was the key, Den; these are far more satisfactory. With the technical problem out of the way you can work on the composition; both your versions here are pleasing, V2 more so. The depth of shadow in the background is overall greater and more even, leaving just two lighter patches, one either side of the pewter mug. I would be inclined to clone out the lighter patch on the right but leave the one in the centre of the square: just a gut feeling, others might remove both or leave both in.
Very attractive.

Another fine couple of images, maybe a tad to similar to yesterdays for me, but that is not to detract from a very good image.

Best Matt
