I was at the computer one night last week and having a nice cold beer (Tsingtao). It sat next to me on the sideboard and when I reached for it for a sip, it looked sooo good with the fishtank light illuminating it from behind.
So I held it in front of the tank with my left hand and took the pic with my right.
Now the camera used the flash...which was a good thing 'cos it managed to blacken most of the background and made the beer stand out!
I cropped it, and resized it. Then brought down the light via gamma correction and boosted contrast a bit. Then sharpened it.
Makes me feel thirsty looking at it now...lol.
