I got up (too) early this morning and shot in the dimly-lit kitchen before daybreak.

This project was a learning experience for me….it took much trial and error to get the shots posted here. I didn't use a tripod but set the camera down on a cutting board on top of the stove and set “self timer: 2 sec.” on the camera.

I've provided the data below if anyone wants to make suggestions on something I could have done differently.

Wasn't sure if the color or B/W version is better….any suggestions?

The color version is my favourite! Such beautiful light and colors, making all confortable to the eyes.

great job using low light techniques. I like the color shot better because I can see more detail than in the black and white.

Love 'em both -- but I'm more attracted to the metallic look that the color version brings.

I could learn so much from you. My attempt sucked. I should have tried harder.
