Here is a photo of a pretty 1981 brass medal to promote Guilin (Guangxi province), China.

Thanks, Peter. This is my take.
Hi Frank,
I like this. You control the reflectiveness of the brass really well. Great! My photo is an attempt to make a landscape struck into metal resemble a painted landscape, to show the art aspect of the design. Both approaches show us different sides of the same coin, so to speak.

Hi Peter,

Thanks for your professional comment. I actually used HDR (high dynamic range) for taking Guilin medal pictures. The reason is that they easily overexpose.

Your pictures give a sense of depth by highlighting different layers. Mine is kind of flat,due to the frosting of the devices. I actually suspected yours is the gilt version. Several veterans in the brass medal QQ group in China confirmed my opinion after viewing your pictures. If that is the case, your skills in taking coin/medal pictures are even more admirable. I can never shoot gilt medals with direct lighting. I have to resort to axial lighting or reflected lighting.

This is pretty common brass medal.
