Playing with lighting
I had one of these as a child... they're miniature scences made of cork encapsulated under a glass dome or glass display. Very Chinese thing... mostly a tourist item/trinket. But I just love them, you can get lost in that little world.
This one is of a pagoda on an island in the middle of a pond with cranes, pine and maple trees.
I was playing with the lighting... this one is lit from the front of the pagoda. "Raking light" I like how the pine tree glows.
