After debating with myself and family members (no one picks the same) I finally settle for Penoltas glass plate. I admire the way he's brought it out so clearly and evenly against a black background. Any tips on how you did it?

Thanks, Kjell. I used my *ist D with the kit lens - I took several plates of different sizes and thus wanted the zoom capability and the kit lens is a good performer in the close-up range; I thought this one the best of the lot - a couple of others can be seenin this thread:http://forums.steves-digicams.com/fo...amp;forum_id=7. They were photographed on a black background in a light tent (Photek Digital Lighthouse)illuminated from both sides and open at the top for shooting downwards on the subject. The lights werepositioned low down to minimize any diffuse reflectionson theplate top. Exposure for this one was 1/30", f8, ISO 400, brightness and contrast adjusted, and sharpened.

I am going to vote for Ed's beautiful ship in the bottle. Stunning sharpness.

Ira's whiskey bottle was a very close second. Love the background lights!

I initially thoughtthis wasa tough subject. But "Cutty Sark in Glass" get us my vote. The composition and lighting are untouchable!

It definitely reminds me of mylimited interpretive and creative abilities, none of which would be improved by more expensivegear
