This is a little different from my normal shots, I was asked to produce a still life image of wine and cheese. As this is my first attempt at still life any help would be much appreciated.
mmm..if l was there..l would devour that.....excellent shot.....well done....Lizzie
Thanks Lizzie, still finishing the cheese and grapes, will have to open a new bottle of wine soon.
Don't think I can give you any help, but I do like the composition and the overall effect.
I Like it. Wish my still lifes looked like that. Nice choice of wine
Everything is perfect, but I would try a plain background.
Funny Ken I was going to do a still life on these lines but with an empty glass because I found this poem to illustrate.
The day he moved out was terrible
That evening she went through hell,
His absense wasn't a problem
But the corkscrew had gone as well .
Your still life looks eatable and delicious and nice lighting .
Nicely composed, I'm not sure if the top of the bottle should be included or not.
PS if it was mine the wine would go, the grapes would go and the cheese would go ...MOULDY
i would have included the top[ of the bottle and used a plain background, but then what do i know
tis now midnight and I could fair go a glass of wine and some cheese,very nice shot.
No help needed. Totaly competant in this area!
Excellent, agree with Chris about the bottle top - to leave, to crop? - Still, desired effect achieved, makes the viewer want to step in and pour!
very crisp, clean shot ken, can't decide about the top of the bottle? Different from your usual style but works well Jane
Lovely shot Ken with superb composiiton,love the colours of the grapes against the wood and cheese,looks really crisp and fresh,well done*click*
Dont think you need any help at all Ken,this is very good.I have never attempted a still life myself,well not seriously,but I know what I like.This has great composition and lighting,its really wonderful. The only wee thing I am not too sure of is the crop on the bottle,still,very well done. Click.
Yummy, nice to see this in my lunch break, thanks
Think I would like to see the glass either a little behind or in front of the bottle (if you don't mind me saying so) to balance the shape of the cheese, but it's still a great clean shot, very pleasing, click!
I see some great flowers...am going to click around them
Very well composed and photographed Ken. The food looks edible and the wine drinkable. I'd probably have included the top of the bottle.
Amazing capture Ken,beautifully sharp and wonderful colours and textures,top class.
Thank you all for your comments. I took a series of shots with Wine, Brandy and cheese. I was not sure if with the top was better than without. So my next upload will be with top.
Patricia, I have taken on board the the glass position and have made some changes, will upload on Weds. Thanks.
I will also try some plain backgrounds soon.
I do like this one, but i definitely prefer the one after it..it's all about our own personal tastes isn't it?
click from me
good clean image, a difficult discipline, where nothing is what it seems, click (*:*)
Classic still life. I like the strong light.
With an apology to everyone... Ken... you commented on a Hibiscus image in my portfolio (which I missed until today!) and I have left a question for you. Don't know how to contact you other that like this - hence my apology to everyone else... If you could respond, it would be MOST appreciated. My e-mail in my portfolio details...
