The bowl is beautiful …

How did you do the photographs? They’re also pretty impressive

Man that is one Gorgeous Bowl! I love the way you have displayed it in the photo!! Do you use Shellac very often on your projects? It sure sets your bowl off…... What photo software do you use? Great Job!!!

Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful, beautiful bowl! Cool wood and nice form. Not that you ask, but… I find the black oval frame to be a distraction. However I really like the second treatment.

Beautiful bowl, very nice work, and the use of shellac really does it justice. The photography really sets it all off.
