1934 Lincoln, new photos.
A rephotographed 1934-D Lincoln, last shown in post #4357.
And a new photo of this slightly pale, but lustrous red 1935 cent.
I tried tipping the coin away from the lights instead of toward them. The use of incident lighting rather than a more axial (that is, nearly overhead) excites the luster rather than just illuminating the fields.
With a nearly perpendicular angle to the lights. (Angle like |.)
A second try using the same coin, with the bottom of the coin tipped down so the light comes from the top of the coin at a slight angle from vertical. (Angle like /.) Also the exposure is one step darker.
Is it worth keeping?
Warning! As you see more coins your tastes may evolve, so follow your likes. Don’t worry too much about what other people think.
