Thanks Steven. This is one image in a part of a series I'm working on that I'm uploading to Adobe Stock. Who knows if it'll sell. But it gave me an excuse to play around with my new background. :D

I don't know if I mentioned it but two weeks ago I created a small tabletop textured background. I needed something dark with texture as all my dark stuff is fairly smooth. This particular background is 2' x 4' luan with the other side stained a dark brown to keep the wood grain on the better side of the plywood. Here are images of the results from a shoot I did for stock.

Very nice look with that background. Keep it up!
