Goofing around with the camera and some favorite classic gear today. Please tell me which of these images you would choose to go into next year's Classic Gear Calendar...
I realized after editing the photos that the Line Tonic tin has the perfect colors for the image - red (matches the wraps), tan (matches the creel) and black (matches the darkest areas. I wish it had been intentional, LOL! Maybe subconsciously...All good. I've seen the neck hackle version a bunch of times. The first two are kinda plain. The Line Tonic really adds something a little different.
Hmmm, let me work on that. See what you think about this version...I like the first one, both the composition and the lighting.
My second favorite is the bottom one, but is seems a bit drab compared to the vibrancy of the first one (although if it were subtly enhanced in Photoshop, it could tie for my favorite).
