Award Shortlist

A lazy day messing around with the camera, not sure about the results and little did I know the difficulties in photographing glass. The lighting and reflections were a nightmare!

Comments and advice most welcomed

Great 'line up'. It could look really cool in a duo tone or even B & W so colours a little more muted. Only an idea.....

this is nice. I like the range of colors you used.

Your 'messing about' has paid off really well. Superb colours and the capture of the quality of 'glass' is spot on. Great abstract. Bruce.

Now I've been thinking of doing something along these lines for a while, but not exactly sure what I was going to do.
I'd prefer to see fewer highlights and fewer distractions in the reflections in the glasses, but I know it's not going to be easy, as you found out!

Thanks all for the comments

Keith, good luck, the lighting and reflections are hell to set up and at some point I'm going to come back to this and have another go. I guess I could have used CS2 to tidy it up but decided that straight from the camera was the way to go.

Look forward to seeing your try

very eye catching colours, would have been better if the glasses were better ligned up and the fluids same amount in each glass.

Love the colors and comp.
I think less glare on the top half would be nice. Dont know if the glasses are dirty or just reflecting, but if a more transparent look was possible it would help.

Well done

Great shot, Alistair!
The colors are fantastic, and the reflections add character to the over all photo.

Click 30! Whoo hoo!

Congratulations on your RCA!
