Thanks all. Nic, I placed a piece of painted glass (don't ask) on top of my diskstakker, to get it high enough to get only venetian blinds as reflections, poured a small amount of water on the glass, and started taking shots of that, (standing on a stepladder to get myself high enough.) When I uploaded I thought it looked a little boring, so I set up again, and placed a marble in the water. Longer exposure picks up the venetian blinds reflections, this is f/9 at 0.5sec. Raw processing done in Shade white balance to bring up the gold.
Here's one I prepared earlier:
using tungsten as the raw processing white balance.

Cheers Mel - love the other version too. Hard to believe that two such similar images could end up looking so different. Well done Smile
19 Feb 2006 11:26PM
Thanks Nic, I flipped the blue one horizontally too....helps make it look a little different too. Smile
