A cool plate found inside an bought an enormous old trunk, sitting atop a plain white plastic plate. And atop the metal plate is a braid of three lengths of red licorice! I wondered if the b/w might make the licorice look more like metal. As usual I like to confuse and confound people :-)
Shot with camera on tripod and my ginormous $2 light.

I think BW was a mistake - it would have ribboned if it was in full color.

...ok, maybe not ribboned, but it would look much more tasty. :)

interesting choice to go to the b&w on this shot, It seems that there are some exposure issues based on the multiple hotspots, or its lighting... maybe both

more contrast needed to make it pop out of the page

I meets the challenge. I think I would have liked the colored version better.

Oh. I think this would have looked much better in color. Or with more contrast. It's a bit washed out.
