Bottles on glass in front of a window, with a blue translucent plastic sheet between the foreground bottles and the background ones. Unfortunately the size of the plastic sheet limited my compositional opportunities. The mottled shadows are from back lit,leafy branches.

Open Picasa

Open PSCS3
Variations > more blue, more cyan, lighten, because the hues were a bit more to the purple side than the actual colours. Now I wish I'd left this part alone, because the colours on DPC look more to the aqua side than what I ended up with in PS. But I didn't save the work at a stage that I could go back to.

The patterns in the background turn this from ordinary to extraordinary. Nicely done.
