    So huge pet peeve of mine. Why do web sites, even some of the sponsors here insist on taking pictures of Meerschaum pipes (That are bright white) on white backgrounds. You can't make out the detail of the pipe. It is not good advertising for something that is typically very detailed. It seems to be prevalent even on the Meerschaum makers web sites not just on regular pipe web sites.

    Completely agree. The only excuse I can think of is that they have a more or less automated system of putting pipes in front of uniform backgrounds. It seems like an easy (and necessary) fix but alas, I see it all the time.

    Same reason why they have a black stem and take the pics with a black background

    This has been a pet peeve of mine too. Even my favorite photographers, smokingpipes do this. I don't understand why.

    What's so hard about this pic?
