    The black just gets lost here a little, but nice idea. Perhaps a mid-toned background could have helped.

    Thanks Una - you're probably right - It's hard to get the teapot to stand out against the dark tablecloth.

    The subjects itself I like a lot, but I would have used a more neutral background. Maybe one where the pot can show to advantage.

    Thanks Magich - I'm not sure what "closed in the shadow" means - Perhaps it's what Jade is referring to with the problems of working with white and black? I know it was a challenge that resulted in many different shots, and finally changing cameras - and as you point out, Jade - I was so concentrated on that problem, that I forgot the background ...

    Doing white and black exposures in the same image pushes the limits of dynamic range, and here, maybe tone mapping or HDR is called for as the teapot is really underexposed. The red background sets off the black and white nicely but there are two distracting background objects which I would thought you could easily have eliminated in setting up this shot.

    Maybe a little closed in the shadow, but I like the composition and the black-withe-red colors.
In my TT.
Good luck!
