Photographing Pottery in Natural Light - What a Difference a Day Makes

Today it snowed most of the day.  The natural lighting was gloomy.   I took advantage of  the gloom and did a re-shoot of some pots that were not getting the attention they deserved.

Last week I took photos on a sunny day.  The photos came out pretty bad.   I couldn't even fix them in Elements. 

Here are some before and afters photos that show just what a difference a day makes.
