The Teapot Handle

By helenlinda
Thank you so much everyone who left clicks or comments on my Saturday Shadow yesterday. In particular many thanks to Pamela for her User Award - very much appreciated SmileSmile
This afternoon I went with my friend Barbara to Kings Heath Park gardens - and they were shut - wrong week !!!
So we had a cup of tea in the tea room.
Naturally there were some photo opportunities with the teapot WinkWinkWink
Thanks for looking
Helen

v2 is what I have worked with. It is the reflection of the metal table in the teapot handle. I have rotated it slightly and adjusted shadows/highlights in CS3 to bring back the detail in the lattice metal table, cropped and then put four layers together. I tried out different arrangements of the layers and for me this was the only one that worked - hope that helps to make sense of what you can see

I wonder how many photo opportunites you get Helen,
if you were invited to the Mad Hatters tea party !!
Good abstract shots.

Not one to miss an opportunity - you've worked your magic
once again! but have to admit I'm puzzling over what I'm seeing or not
as case may be!

Clever, V1 gives structure. I've often tried with teapots and never got a decent reflection shot...

Excellent spot, Helen, but there again you always seem to find these opportunities.Smile

I would like to see a version with just the bottom half to add even larger degree of abstract to the image. Well, I think it would look OKWink Don't know what you think?
