The Pitcher

Trying for a highkey effect with ViewNX 2, and Photo Brush for tweaking and resizing.
Not a user of Photoshop

An Internet definition of 'Highkey' - "High-key lighting means an overall brighter picture, while low-key lighting means an overall darker picture. Mid-key lighting falls in the middle, yielding average brightness." According to this definition, the image is definitely 'highkey'.

Nikon D700 ,Tamron AF 28-300mm F/3.5-6.3 XR Di VC LD Aspheri
1/125s f/5.0 at 70.0mm iso220

Nicely done, such an elegant shape. I like jugs.

the rug under the picture makes the high key actually a mid-key. it should be black.

This looks great, Vern. Love the clean, spare lines and curves.

I don't know what highkey means but I sure do like this. I keep wanting to say "Beautiful Still Shot" but that doesn't sound right since that's the nature of a photograph... to make time stand still. But it still was what I wanted to day so I am. :) I love it.

WOW! I really like it! Not only is he effect cool but the composition is really neat with the lines in the back being picked up with the lines in the front.
