      I think I like the Turkey pan better than the Terra Cotta bowl... (o:

      Thanks very much for this -- I've been eyeing both designs, and prefer the turkey pan version a bit better based on your comparison photos. Thanks for potentially saving me some time and effort!

      great job....both shots are very polished and professional....the one on the right has a slight reflection on the wall, to the left of your wife....perhaps that's nothing to do with the dish tho.....great job on making them....My dish doen't fit my strobe's too small, it fits a bowen s i have to gaffa tape the dish to the strobe....not very graceful or professional looking but it works ;o)

      Thanks Ed for posting the comparison. With the amount of comments you get I'm not sure if you will have a chance to reply but I have a quick question for you. Which one do you use more the turkey dish or faux Terra Cotta Bowl? I was planning on building a variation of the Terra Cotta dish this weekend for a shoot I have next week but do I really need to seeing as though I already have a Fong Sphere and I'm sure I can pick up a turkey pan it being almost Christmas and all.

      Thanks again for all the inspiration, all the images in your stream are awesome.
