Hi folks - this will probably be the last one in this particular series, however I will probably do more abstact stuff at the weekend. I must admit, I'm enjoying doing these as it's something completely different. Thanks to everyone for your feedback on the previous two. This is also a shot of the same bottle (containing water), against a wall with a partly black and partly white background, lit with a snoot to one side.

I look forward to your comments/critiques/savaging/mods etc! I know the crop won't be to everyone's taste, but I quite liked the square format. There is also something that niggles me about this image, which I would change if I was to do this again. See if you can guess what it is.. :o)

I'm a late arrival here, having missed the last two but have to say I like all three with this one edging it for its purity - very simple. The square format suits it well.
I know it would rather ruin the title but I'd be tempted to do without the teardropWink
Cracking stuff Melanie.

Spot on Danny, that was the thing that was really niggling me. However, I'm not sure now if would've looked any better if it was all completely sharp. Perhaps it would've.

What's next? Well I have a few ideas, you'll just have to wait and see :o)

Thanks for your comments.

I think I would be inclined to crop it off there where the glass disappears into complete blackness. But that's just me, of course. And only after looking at it for a while. I liked it immediately when I saw it, so it must be a good 'un! Wink

Thanks Clint for your comments. Conrad, I thought about cropping the left hand side a bit, but I liked the way it fell into darkness. Cheers for the comments!
