Interesting images, Walter...I'm trying to understand the lighting. The images look very bright on the right with shadows on the left but it seems that the camera was perpendicular to the images, in which case it should produce shadows on both sides of the subject. Did you take the pictures vertically and then turned them horizontally?

The items were placed on a sheet of printer paper atop my dining room table. The sun was coming in the window on my right as I shot downward. Thus, the sun was casting a shadow to the left of the subjects. Also, the ceramic box base (#3) was taller than the other two items, thus casting a longer shadow. Does that help?

It certainly does, Walter. Thanks for the explanation. On the first shot there is a line from joining two sheets of paper together, which is an eye catcher (to me, at least). Nonetheless, good exposure on all three shots.

Walter,
Love the the images ESP the first. As Tullio noted the seam in he paper is just barely visible ut adds a bit of interest.
