Challenge: Five (Advanced Editing IV)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II
Location: Board room at work.
Date: May 5, 2005
Aperture: F/13
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/124th
Galleries: Still Life
Date Uploaded: May 5, 2005

Shot on a whiteboard, rotated to be flat, in front of a projection screen at work.

The screen is lit with the 580ex, fired in manual mode under the whiteboard...

I'll post a pic of the setup once the challenge is finished.

Post was just rotate a little, clean up some dust spots & one smear on a glass, scale, sharpen and save for web. In the GIMP.

Lets see if this one does as well as my three entry, that was very similar, and also done at work at the last minute...

It never fails to amaze me how a simple prop like a wine glass (or five) can be used in such a creative way. Congratulations on your ribbon.

Wooo Hoooo! :-).

Thanks for the votes and comments folks...

For the people who mentioned it, this is actually in colour...

I'll post a 'how I did it' later on tonight, when I manage to get the grin off my face. :-)

Cheers, Me.

Very elegant looking. I love it.

05/13/2005 07:06:07 PM
that line in the background is really distracting. If you are going to use black glass make sure you have a piece big enough

Excellent use of reflection here. What a crisp shot! Composition is excellent- well done. (9)

Excellent shot, the only thing is a bit of jaggedness on the rim of the glass. 9

This is a great setup, quite a lot to look at and hold your eye... although maybe a touch too antiseptic for my tastes, the quality can't be questioned.

Martini glasses would've been just as fun! ;-)

interesting -- what were they sitting on?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/07/2005 01:46:41 PM
I was going to do a very similar picture, but one of our wine glasses was broken this week, which means that I'll have to wait until the four challenge ;) Well done. I think it is the best of the lot. 10

Wonderful shot and so hard to do.. Love the reflections and Lighting, 8

This is technically flawless, pretty much. I don't know when I've seen luminosity and transpatrency done this well in B/W in DPC. I cannot fault this image at all, except to wonder if a little bit of gradient-to-dark in the very foreground might make it even stronger? 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/07/2005 01:46:12 AM
beautiful reflection. I'd have liked the crop to leave a little more space above the glasses, though. This feels a little claustrophobic to me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/07/2005 01:16:14 AM
First picture I've said, "Wow" on! What aMAZING focus and lighting!!! The black and white looks awesome. It's just a perfect 10 that's all.
