Too busy right now, so this was set up and taken fairly quickly. But, I did get to play around with various lighting angles for an hour, so I learned something. :)

All the spots come with the subject and couldn't be removed - too bad this is Basic editing.

yep, this is a small ceramic bust of ol' George Washington - stands about 7-8" high (face is about 1.5-2" high), and been in my family for more than 150 years. The spots are there to stay, I didn't want to take steel wool to the poor guy to clean him up, I'd rather he stay just the way he is. :)

looks like a statue of George Washington. I think the light sets the tone well for the title

Nice shot very huanting. The dirt specks on the face enhance the photo.
