Here is what I have so far. You can see the effect the crackle finish has in affecting the light. Since this is just a bullion coin and not a proof collector coin, I may just leave it as is.
That's some fancy shootin' there, Tex. Take it from an old school photo bug (>25 years in the business), that is a darned fine effort on a difficult to render subject.
@saltysam-1, those are some GREAT photos of the bullion piece. I received my coin last week and am very disappointed in it. There is no frost contrast to highlight any of the details. I think the design is cool, but the Royal Mint needs to add a little frost to accentuate the design.
"Can I get an 'Amen', brother?" That design just begs for a frosted Britannia and Her Majesty.
The pictures posted by Ken454 are more indicative of the coin in hand. It has ZERO frosting on the coin. All the detail blends together.
Mine have frosting. I could have spent a little longer thing these but the frosting really is there.
Nice. Mine has zero. Wanna trade? LOL.
