Iain has just very kindly spent ages going through my portfolio, so I thought I would say thankyou by uploading this shot.
I haven't really had much time to do anything great, I was doing some test shots for lighting and thought this may be worth sharing, hope you like it :o)
Taken on a glass surface with a sheet of white Perspex and a small slave flash with a green balloon stretched across to get the green light effect behind behind the sheet of Perspex.
You should write some articles, this is fabulous! K.
Superb Rob. Excellent light and colour. Crystal clear image. Quality work.
Rob, excellent image; thanks for sharing the technique. Just need to find somewhere that sells a sheet of perspex
Love the colours and reflection!
A super idea that works extremely well. Love it
Realy gorgeous, - well done.

I really love this, the lighting is excellent! I love the colours and the composition with the reflection. Thanks for sharing your technique

Excellent shot, cant believe this was just testing for light! Fantastic colour and interesting description
Excelent image, thanks for taking the time to tell us all how you shot it.
Great lighting and colours! Beautiful!
Beautiful and interesting shot...
Composition,colours and sharpness are great...love that BG as well...(thanks for sharing)
Cool, Classy, Classic Atlas
How nice of you...I'm sure lain was honored!
Lighting and colours you've created are exceptional, Rob...Well Done!
Have a Wonderful Weekend and Congrats on another R.C.
the lighting is great, colours are bold
Sorry, Rob - I don't like it.
Just kidding! Looks really great. Thanks for taking the trouble - I'm flattered. And another RC & HC against my name (by proxy) too!
Excellent work. The colours are fabulous.
great work, could use it for this month competition...
Original, vibrant and worthy of the recognition. Brilliant image.
This is so professional - you really are a master at these. Having recently thought about it, you were probably one of my inspiriations for some of my current abstact stuff. Congrats on the award too
Thankyou very much indeed everyone :o)
Excellent!!! Tara x
Yes, definitely professional quality here. Very creative use of colour and shape!
Everything else has been said already!
a picture with impact.
Thanks for the info always interested to see how you put these shots together. Top quality work as ever
Excellent shot, very creative, superb catch on lighting, well deserved HC, though I would have preferred and EC on this one, nice work Sir! Spot on! Click!!!
EC material, good work Rob. Great saturation of colour.
Quote: classic Atlas
...couldn't have put it better!
Stunning work, superb portfolio, left a few clicks along the way..Thanks for your clicks to.
Thankyou very much indeed everyone, really appreciate you all taking the time :o)
Creative control of lighting, well done Rob.
Great work, Rob.
Your an Artist.
I'm not, but wonder how it would look, when the horizontal line was exact between the two and a little crop off at the top.?
Just superb. Beautiful image and fantastic combination of colour. PAul
superb colour and detail, well done
Thankyou very much Eric, Gill, Jan, Paul and Maddie :o)
This I think should be titled "The Strawberry'
I also think Pete should be a little less reserved and recognise talent more 'elevatedly' where it exists outside his own preferences (oops!)
This shot could/will live on
brilliant colours i do like it
Quality work as ever! Sorry I haven't had time to go through your folio lately but that is undoubtedly my loss! Inspiration and instruction is a hard combination to beat!
Love those vibrant colours and the detail in the paperweight! Amazing lighting and reflection!
Hi Rob great work yet again, see you in a couple of weeks
Thanks Dave, Dven, Chris, Becky, Sue and Ivana.
Dave, i'm not sure what it is supposed be really, looks like a strawberry pear to me. It is a very old paperweight that my grandmother gave to me before she died aged 93.
Pete's choice or EC stuff is okayish, usually some odd choices. He usually recognises a technically good image with HC's though.
Top stuff Rob - supurb & surprising as always.
amazingly your work has only gotten more stunning in the year since I've been away from EPZ....stunning portfolio
Thanks very much Chris and Amy :o)
Its very well composed and the lighting is very tasteful as is the reflections...and not a speck of dust in sight
Thanks kristoffer, Kin and Amy :o)
Amazing effects here ... I love it .... I have read your description on the way you did this ... very very interesting! Thanks for sharing with us all! See ... I believe that an awful lot of great images come from just "messing" about ... trying different things! Keep "messing" about! Click*
Thankyou Keren, you are definitely right about the messing about :o)
WOW,thats one excellent shot Rob,the quality is superb and the effect is just stunning,love those colours.
excellence in the taking
Very cool effect

Hello Rob, well exposure to capture colour doesn't get much more vivid than this ...credit to your ability to keep it sharp and beautiful, great outcome to your experiment.
Rob, your work is just so inspirational! I've just bought a lightbox (my treat with some book royalties!) can you recommend anything I can read to help me use it properly? Just had a quick play but I've got some marking to do! Any help gratefully receieved! Jane
Stunning colours and clarity Rob. Beautiful work.
Thankyou very much Jeff, Doug, Jane and Jason :o)
Sent you an E-mail Jane.
Rob I haven't got your e mail? Jane
Sent it again Jane :o)
tones and colours are stunning
Normally, abstract images don;t grab me, but really like this one. You also have a great porfolio, wish I had more time to open all your pics, but must get some work done!!
PS Thanks for your comments on my picture.
What a stunning colour combination, Rob. Sorry I can't make it 100

Yes Jill, I too think HC's are better than EC's
Cleverly conceived, as always ... another quality shot, Rob - well done.
Thankyou very much indeed Keith and Susie :o)
