    Zippo Lighter (abstract)

    Took a few shots of my new toy (Bit of a Pyromaniac)

    Let me know what you think, comment and critique if you have any ideas about what I've done or better ideas/ways to go about the image I'm trying to achieve

    Yea taking that corner back on the second one was a good idea.

    I'ma have to agree with this. The sliver of the table just pops.

    Whereas, I would go for #1. Why?

    • I think the balance of tone makes for a more harmonious image
    • I love the lighting on the ZIPPO. Very atmospheric.
    • The main transition line from the shadows runs 'with' the image rather than cuts across it (hope this makes sense). #2 & #3 both have a severe line cutting across them and that just doesn't work for me.

    I am not overly keen on the first 2 but number 3 is far more sculptural. I like the texture and curve of the table. Personally I would have cropped at the point where the table terminates at the lower left of the image and added that to the top of the frame.
