    They are wonderful, but it's time for the weather to warm up and get you outside again...

    Jiro, you are gettin some good practice...I like the lighting but maybe need a second light to combat the shadows and the color looks very nice.

    Thanks, Chris. I'm just waiting for some sun to shine. In the meantime, I'll take pictures of whatever I can find inside the house. LOL!

    Thanks, Paul. I decided to use only one light and then put a white reflector near the shadow area to add some detail in it. I tried the 2 light source but it was too overpowering, I lost some textures. I need to make a snoot for the other table lamp. I'll probably buy some scrap sheet metal for that. Thank you very much for the nice comment.

    There is something slightly erotic about this - the way they are 'spooned' together like that. Maybe I'm going bananas...

    You really have a very wild imagination. LOL! It's not bad to go bananas once in a while, Rob.

    I like this, especially the way the bananas are lit from one side/front. I feel it gives a lovely, slightly subdued effect. Nice background too.

    I second all of the complimentary things said here--and also want to say that I think the color of your background is excellent--too good to not be purposeful. Nice implied diagonal lines, too. Richard
