Here is another of the Chinese Lantern I found blowing up the drive a few months ago....this time placed inside one of my vintage coloured brandy glasses and placed in sunlight coming through the window.
Think I might add a version or two while I am at it.....I have quite a collection of vintage glass and it was great fun trying out the different coloursSmile Very little processing in these shots, just minor tweaks.

I don't mind if I do!!!!!
Super images, can't pick a fave coz I like them all equally. Love how the different coloured glassware has afforded three very distinctive images, beautifully photographed and presented......nice and creative, too!

Lead for me, love the effect the light has had on the glass, looks like a sea of ice cubes.
The light play on the glass is very effective, I would have removed that whiter/ lighter bit on the RHS though.
Well thought out.

well conceived and beautifully executed
the lead wins for me
Well thought out and perfectly executed. Must agree with Janet though about the white on the right. Have my award with pleasure.

For me the lead V1 and V3 work. The lead image I thought of lovely golden honey, agree with Janet above about the little white patch easily cropped or cloned out. The more gentle colours in V1 and V3 are appealing, but the red in V2 is just too powerful. Probably also worth experimenting with bigger depth-of-field if you can repeat the pictures.

A lovely set. Such a delicate seed pod I'm glad it didn't fall apart on you. I'm leaning to the lead shot.
