, I must say that you have a proverbial patience...
I'm trying to improve a little bit the previous version ...
The only real novelty it's the reflection and think it is very (too) dependents on the type of material, so I will have to experiment a bit more.
I added a first and timid version of light reflection on the glass...
I lowered the overall contrast (by dynamics), removed the back footprint, altered the materials reflectiveness and in fact the tube details stands out more.
Moreover the font used for the tagline is called: "Air Conditioner
Here are the files in JPEG format (but with low loss):wallpaper 4:3 file: vintage02_prova007_rs_4-3.jpegwallpaper 16:9 file: vintage02_prova007_rs_16-9.jpegwallpaper 16:10 file: vintage02_prova007_rs_16-10.jpeg
I would avoid putting the RAW file version "vintage02_prova007_rs.xcf
" on my webspace because it has a size of 32.5Mb
. This is due to the fact that nearly all objects residing on its layer.
... but if you're really interested ...
Previously, I approximated the geometric perspective, using the isometric method by estimating distances and an angle of 20° (the tubes should be at the center), but I confess that I am not fully convinced yet!
As soon as I tried to remove the sharp edge in front; the 'error' feeling becomes stronger!
Perhaps brutally using a golden ratio (the tubes moves slightly forward) would work better.
When I have more time I'll try the other things you mentioned and maybe even trying to have a greater viewing distance...
As in a typical photo of a tube amp... so I'll also try something completely different.
I think I understand what you mean in general, I also like working on a desktop very clean and intelligible with reference to the elements that are present.
And often I find myself on the minimalistic limit, though on my desktops, there are at most 5 or 6 items.
Certainly one (of many) ways to achieve this is to use subjects with dim lighting and with homogeneous contrast.
The next will be cleaner: I promise (or not)...
