I remember this picture when you posted it before, it really is a lovely photo. I have some cut glass items that I've been thinking about photographing for this challenge, but hadn't tried to figure out how to do it best. I might try something like this - it really brings out the design very well.

Harriet, as mentioned in the old thread, it was photographed on a black background in a light tent illuminated from both sides and open at the top. It is so bright because of the many prismatic reflections characteristic of the type of pressed glass known as "lacy glass". The camera was my first Pentax digital, the *istD with kit lens, 1/30 sec, f8, ISO 400.

Nice job. I was thinking there were more than one shot in your post but I guess I'm thinking of your link to the older post.

Beautiful. The effect against the black is stunning.
