Easy finishes?

>Well I finally got my first and second bowl turned out of the spalted sycamore I found a couple weeks back! Learning something different with each one. Now if I just hadn't stripped out the tool rest set. :(

The second one I put a coat of tung oil on and it signifficantly darkened it. It worked to bring out the lighter portions, but I don't like the way the medium shades went dark. What is an easy finish that won't obscure the grain and color patters much, wax?
