One4UAll,
I like the shadows, they give the photo some depth. Maybe just lighten them to see a some detail. I also like the shadow of the light bulb. I also own a Rolleiflex TLR, great camera. I haven't used it in years but I still won't part with it.

I spent some time going back & forth between your rendition (a good one, btw) & my last rendition. Trying to make up my mind. I'm opting for my last rendition because there's just enough detail in the shadows while making a good contrast, not only between the bulb & background, but on the bulb, itself. I've learned a lot from this thread.

Thanks for providing me with an option. I bought my Rollei 50 yrs. ago, & like you, I won't part with it. You can match, but not beat, that Zeiss glass.
