Wow, very awesome. Yeah, I agree that the 1882 looks cleaned in comparison. As if it were rubbed between the fingers, or something. May want to experiment with lighting angles from the North – her nose, eyebrow and earlobe are bright. I think light from the north livens up the headdress, too, because light from the west tends to cast shadows on the other side of the LIBERTY headband and feather tips, kind of making the headdress dark. Generally in my experience, RPDs tend to be easier to see with the light from the north or the south – although some can’t be seen unless the light comes from the east or west… no golden rules here, for sure!

I didn’t know that about the visible spectrum and the CMOS sensor, so thanks for posting that stuff!
