Looking REALLY good! I think the grey background has helped, but as Paulr said, a bit darker still might be better.  Thumbs up

Just have a bit of a play with backgrounds, Will.  Smiley

It's impossible to guess the exact 'shade' of background you've used....I'd have to be there, and see it in 'normal' light.

Decades ago I don't want to see......The gray card that I used when taking meter readings for the exposures, (so I could then go on to use manual settings,) was in reality darker than I would have expected for this fabled neutral tone......I can only describe it as mid to dark gray.

For all I know, you've used exactly this right shade for the background.....And the auto meter has compensated and 'washed it out', very slightly. (Perhaps ?)

It's still oodles better..(I like it !)......and does your work far more justice !! Smiley

Great stuff !!

Cheers - Phil

Is it time I had a signature? Everyone else does.
