Particular beams from different spotlights add a special attention to the objects. The accent of light is natural result of a higher brightness. In LTB shop, brightness contrast of objects to the surrounding ambient is 3:1 and the modelling object can be noticed very clearly. In the shop windows the brightness contrast of the object to the surroundings ambient is 10:1 and the difference between bright and shadow points can be percepted very well.
