shot this lamp we have using a whiteboard backing
and using my underwater strobe for extra lighting to creat shadows
started with cropping to remove me from original holding the board
then tweaked up the sharpness and removed a bit of noise
then used levels to get the look i liked best
added a gray then black then another gray border
resized to max allowed
converted from Raw

i know that the black pole is going to be a bit distracting but wasnt much i could do about that as its part of the lamp

thanks for a PB :)

Pretty unique piece. You should try to get a model a mimic the scene like this.

This is structurally interesting. I love all of the different lines that are created by the circle and the human form. The border compliments this nicely.

Very nice. A real model would have made it a 10.

I wish the lighting was a little better. Maybe more contrast too. 7

Don't like the shadows so much, but good shot otherwise.
