Shailesh, I don't know how I missed seeing this image before - I've even been to your profile several times! What a timeless beauty. I know it's been done before, but this is such a unique and refreshing take, and soooooo well done. Kudos!

Wow, you did a great job here.
It is hard to critique this shot. You probably would have cloned out the dust on the glass to the right if it wasn't Basic editing.
The cropping is perfect, actually much better than Jacko's.
This is what I see (and probably you to):
1. I would have liked to see a bit more of the outlines of the glass in the middle.
2. The glass in the middle should have been a bit closer so the top of it was a bit higher then the other two or to have it lower or to have it in the same hight. The way you have is more like you made a mistake.
3. I love the colours, the lighting is also great.

Wonderful tones. The sharpening you did along with the lighting actually makes these colors look much better together.

This has become too much of a DPC cliche to get very high marks any more.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Excelent framing and wonderful colours. I really like the lighting and lack of reflections

Top 3. Nicely conceived and setup variation of this oft taken still life. Exceptional framing color and technical quality. Beautifully done.

04/28/2006 04:38:22 PM
Nice idea.

04/28/2006 10:09:05 AM
very bored of this style of phot. Been done so many times. Originality???? 5
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2006 04:35:15 PM
Excellent execution. Very eye catching. Wish the idea hadn't been done many times before, however. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2006 08:29:33 AM
this idea is not original anymore.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/26/2006 11:16:34 PM
good shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/26/2006 06:40:45 PM
7 - Nice colors. Good execution and refraction and symmetry. Fairly minor and nothing to be done likely in basic anyway, but the 'someting' in the right glass up near the rim detracts in my opinion.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/26/2006 03:40:21 PM
Too often done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/26/2006 01:22:05 PM
One of the few images that stand out in this challenge. I don't care if it has been done a million times. It is still a very cool thing and this is a great version. 10

  Photographer found comment helpful.

These are the DPC equivalent of flower or bug shots.. 3 in this challenge alone so far i've seen, yet still each one is unique. Nice take on this photo, and meets the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/26/2006 03:50:50 AM
great as usual, but black edge at bottom should have been cropped off
