More fun with the photo bucket

Here is a composite picture of some of my loot from the Wheaton show. I set my Olympus C-3000 to take 5 photos bracketed around +- 0.6. If I'm interpreting this correctly, the photos were taken at +0.6, +0.3, 0.0, -0.3, and -0.6. I used the plastic bucket previously described as a prop for the insulators. It's interesting to see how underexposure (from the camera's auto-exposure default) brings out the color and surface details.

I made the composite using ACD Systems' ACDSee and Photo Mosaic software, then grabbed a copy of the page image with ACDSee rather than printing it.

Hmmm, what's the shadow on the Muncie? That's your friendly cameraman! At least I don't get paid for this!
