Critique Shallot nine days later

Sep 13, 2007
Northern VA suburb of Washington, DC
A shallot I photographed when I bought it is displayed at Critique - Sprouting Shallot. Nine days later I made another photo of the same shallot.

The tabletop and background are the single sheet of semi-glossy gold presentation board used in the first photo. Two medium continuous-light lamps on the left and right sides were so close to the subject to create soft shadows that they were just barely out of the frame. They were at a 45-degree angle to the tabletop. Three flashlights on the right side added bright tones to the ends of the foliage.

Beautiful image, Mike!
The composition and lighting seem to strengthen the elegance of the growth.
A kind of alien look as well, which is a positive for me :)
