The shadowy blotch in the center square below both plates match exactly, as do the curvature of corresponding squares around the plates.

Yes, and there are other slight irregularities in the tablecloth that match perfectly. Curved lines at 12:00, small dark spot at 7:30. Either the background was cloned or these are accidental features of the repeat in the fabric printing.

I think that the contents of plate 2 were cut into the contents of plate 1 (or vice versa) and the two images were blended together to rid the seam (remnant of a possible seams appear visible to me now in the center blue column in the first, fifth and seventh dark blue squares from the top). Somewhat odd, though, because what doesn't match about the two plates is the reflection of the light in the upper right quadrants and lower left quandrants of the plates.

I think they're different plates, photographed in the same place with respect to light sources. The difference in reflections on them can be accounted for by variation in manufacturing. The cut may have been made at the outer edges of the plates.

Maybe you both missed the point. :rolleyes:

For consistency sake, in this case, between the previous photo and the new photo... there's no seam between the two photos of the 2nd photo (unless it's really well blended). Instead of a before and after shot, it's more a full plate and empty plate shot.

Edit: I'm thinking that it is a good transition between two shots and perhaps some blending. The squares of the checker pattern match up too well. The shadowy blotch in the center square below both plates match exactly, as do the curvature of corresponding squares around the plates. I can think of a few reasons/methods the checker patterns match so perfectly. I see a possible seam in the upper center of the whole photo. Kinda trippy the more I look at it. So anyway... if I were the client, I'd like a better seamless transition in the first photo to match the seamlessness of the second.

Yes, I'm a stickler for details. I am impressed by the exactness of the placement of the plates across the blue checkers.

Let's see if I defend you ever again in the super macro thread. :-P

Okay so the checker pattern being matched up is just for the sake of posting here, it just looked better. They wouldnt have matched up in the book because there would be a gutter so it would have made zero difference.

What we're trying to figure out is, how many shots is the background made of?

The background? its just one shot. Basically the left image was one shot, they took away the plate and my camera and lighting stayed put. They put the new plate in its place and i take that shot.

Wouldn't that make it two shots? Or did you use the same shot twice for the cloth?

Say the latest is image #3. What appears to be unique marks on the plates strongly suggest they are the same plate. In image #1 (the OP image), the plates look like they are different plates altogether.

#3 passes my before and after test :lol:

In #2, if the plate was moved and replaced... wow... it's about as exact as could be.

Noted sir! Haha so next time when doing before and after make sure you use the same plate!

You do what you want. I'm stating my preference for believability.
