Golden Geo Ball- Day 3/366

So I got an idea to try some cross lighting today. So I got home tonight and grabbed one of the many toys around my house and grabbed a flash and used a cheap Cowboy Studio off camera flash trigger to light the ball.

I purposely underexposed the image just a touch so that I didn’t pick up the table in the frame. Here’s the RAW image:

Kind of drab and dull but a start… So I did some quick edits in Aperture(Mac App Link):

Which provides a good start:

So then I wanted to remove the color so the eye was lead to the geometry, so into OnOneSoftware’s Photo Suite 6:

Then back into Aperture for a final crop and some slight sharpening on the ball. I think it turned out better than I was expecting.
