Last pumpkin posting until fall ( I think). I'm really happy with the way the silver cup played out. I wasnt sure if I was going to be able to it pull off. In the set up it was hard and shiny (tarnished but shiny) and I knew it was going to compete terribly if I didnt address that. A little smooshing of the background into the beautiful blue-blacks of the cup and carefully manipulating the values did the trick.
It's usually my habit to over play values so it was a challenge to not add a strong light and highlight to it. But that would have messed it all up. So in the end, I learned to hold back a little... Patience is a virtue!
