    Good job and very effective! What watt bulbs are in the lamps, the brighter the better I guess?
    There is a thread in the TR Decorations forum with a few tips on photographing your medals and one member has shown a cheap way to add more light to an object using led lights. You can view the thread here.

    Im not too sure how many watts the bulbs are I will have to take a look later, I should really be using daylight bulbs to eliminate the pinky orange colour in the pictures, Cheers for the link I will take a look now
