Thank you all once again for your kind encouraging words. I have a few more that did not come out as well.

I will also post those just for fun and of course your constructive comments.

Harj, yes the hilt is ivory (synthetic ivory, a composite of resins etc.) The katana is not an heirloom. It's a very nicely made 420j stainless blade from Toledo Spain, but a far cry from the High carbon folded steel clay tempered traditional blades of Japan.

A really nice still life series. All well composed with good lighting. I like #1 best, the light on the bowls create a wonderful warmth.

I like all of them. The first two have almost a 'painted' feel about them that adds a nice effect.

All your positive words have inspired me to shoot even closer. My next purchase will be a Nikon 6t. All the posted fantastic 6t pictures have motivated me to experiment with it on still life.

Hiroshi, do you mind revealing how exactly did you achieved the wonderful lighting effects in these shots? Do you think you could post a version of the pictures with EXIF data?

Again, those are really nice.

He's said that he used a desk lamp off to the side to light the scene. I'm not sure if it was halogen or not.

Beernuts, I used subdued natural light (drapes closed) and nooner is correct, plus a halogen desk lamp to add shadow effect with the white balance set to incandescent. I also used a tripod and from what I can remember the camera was set at f2.8 at 1/4 sec. I thinkI was just lucky that the lighting came out well on the photos.

By the way I'm a novice to digital photography so please forgive this dumb question, but how do I retrieve the EXIF data?
