Thats a nice pair. Nicely lit but could perhaps do with a little more contrast.

Well arranged study and worth seing large, can't see that a boost in contrast would add to the subtle tones myself. Nice folio, by the way.

This is a good shot. I downloaded it and looked at the levels, - most of the detail in this is in the mid to high end, - very little shadow detail. This means its quite light, - so I would think your monitor needs to be calibrated?

If you want to lighten it, and have Photoshop, copy the background, change the blend mode to screen, and use the opacity slider to get it where you want it.

Simple but yet effective - good use of light and contouring - gives it a 3D effect. Good one Carole!

Not dark on my screen, in fact spot on. Nice toning, like the composition but would have expected more space above the apples. click
