    B&W 'Still-Life' Photos

    here are some attempts at 'Still-Life or Table-Top' Photos on my Hasselblad 501CM with the 180mm f4 CFi Sonnar lens,expired 2005 Ilford Delta 400 film processed in Tetenal Neopress HC 1+31 and using just 'window light' -- to get close I used extension tubes so had to increase the exposure of course as usual .

    Are you looking for feedback Pete?

    I ask because if I had shot these (digitally of course), I'd reduce the noise, clone out the dust spots and sharpen them.

    I like the lighting.

    #2 is my pick.

    Cheers,

    #2 is really nice. Excellent use of light and depth of field.

    The tabletop backgrounds in the other two images distract from the subject for me.
