My inspiration came whilst looking through [user]Coley [/user]portfolio,and seeing his images of things seemingly floating in air, very cool.. So thought I would give it a go. FRUSTRATING! Getting everything to hang right/stay still/not slip off the plate or drop and break was challenging (kudos to you [user]Coley [/user]) There was lots of natural light coming from all directions and I used off camera flash on the right.This doesn't look the way I had visualised in my head and I wasn't going to submit it, but thought about the effort I had gone to and decided to anyway. I was expecting 5.5 tops. 4 votes in, average 5 no surprise there but amazingly next day woke up to 6.2 and it has continued to rise since, currently sitting at 6.8. :):) Thanks for your kind votes and comments.

Congrats on your HM. This was one of my ribbon picks and I gave you a 9. I really meant to come back and comment, because it is a really cool shot and I knew it had taken a lot of effort.

Ha !!!
Just read your photo description. (Big Smile) Thanks for the shout out and thanks for checking my profile.
Your photo turned out wonderful. The bit of tea in the cup was an excellent touch and yes things hanging on fishing lines can be very frustrating.
You should try this type of set-up outside, now there is a challenge :D
Congrats on the star shot HM well done!!!

With your well-deserved high finish I know you're floating on air.

Well-done image of a plummeting or lifting free of gravity -- can we tell? -- tea time. A tour de force. Where has Mary Poppins been all these years? Additionally, I love the distortion of the base of the bottle vase.
