    Another try, this time with studio lights (bare bulb with snoot camera-left, speedlight on low power, pointing right to bounce-fill the right side of the pic).

    edit: Not sure if I prefer this one, with a little higher exposure:

    Re: Dangerous Spouse Pics

    For this week's "Silhouette" challenge, I decided to try something fun. My idea was to do a macro shoot of an old tiny slot car, set up against a softbox with some old Christmas fake tree clippings for foliage. Of course as soon as I started setting up, my cat decided he needed to investigate. So I decided I needed to take a shot or two:

    .

    Once I shooed him off the table, I got down to business. This was the setup:

    Then turn the softbox on, the room lights out, and...

    .

    I had an awful lot of fun with this. I think I like #'s 2 and 3 the best, but I'm not sure. I may tweak some of the white balance in a few of the shots, and maybe lighten the last picture a little. I wanted to give it a twilight feel, but I think I went a bit too far. We'll see. I'll play around with them some more tomorrow and see what I think.

    Close, but I like 2 and 4 the best. Number 3 comes in close!

    I like the last one the best as it looks more like a "real" sky. The "tree" is a bit of a distraction, in my opinion.

    Tried Rick's suggestion of removing the "tree" portion of one of the shots, and adjusting the background color.

    The sky looks great! I like that you can see parts of the undercarriages.

    Hey thanks for that, Rick! And I appreciate your suggestion to remove the foliage. Good call - that improved the overall composition
