I love the lighting on this, Rob. It's so simple and accentuates the simplicity of the over all subject.

Definitely check out the big version. You have the lighting and setup technique down to a fine art, so you can think more about what you want to accomplish rather than the details of how to do it.

Thanks Patrick. Exactly right there Patrick Smile
27 Feb 2007 10:05PM
the colouration and lights workl very well in this picture - this is one of the many options i guess - but with the blue and the purple theme the lighting is spot on!

Hi Rob

OK this is what I think Smile- (fine shot tho it is)

The Bg light is a little to intrusive ??

It could gain I think from being more landscape with a bigger space to the right implying the plant is yearning for the light !!!! ???? Smile Smile

Not your shot I understand - but there ya go Smile

Thanks very much Dave. The original shot is landscape but I decided to upload this cropped version. Maybe I should upload the other?

Might be interesting to hear others views - but you got plenty good response anyway...

The plant is pointing so determindly right it suggests to me a space there ??

Rob, love how you got the vase to glow the opposite way your background does. Wow, you know your skills are at a high level when even your "quickie"s get an HC. Congratulations!

The lighting (especially on the vase) is excellent. Did I recognise one of your lemon and ice shots in digital SLR mag? Well done Jane
Atlas 14 621 United Kingdom
10 Mar 2007 8:36PM
Thanks Jane. Yes you're quite right but it was the Orange Chill one, and they printed in landscape format and the colours were odd :-( But!! I was very glad of the money so don't really care LOL! Smile

I had on printed in issue 2 as well in the expert critique section. Got a Trigrip reflector for that Smile

Thanks Terry Smile LOL what... Rob round Rob? What you been drinking Wink

I will do something new soon, I'm looking for a new surface to shoot stuff on, because my other glass surface I often use is being used for something else and can't be moved.

I like this one to, it has a different look I dont feel it needs more space, I do agree about a different colour flower as this pink absorbs the blue, but maybe thats what you wanted not sure, anyway, you always capture the beauty ... you must have a good collection of glassware do you collect them just for photographing? Smile)P

Thanks Paddy. Yes I always keep an eye out for eye catching glassware PURELY for photographing. Just bought 2 more pieces yesterday too Smile
