Challenge: Right Angles (Classic Editing)
Camera: Canon PowerShot S45
Location: lab in Hong Kong
Date: Jul 30, 2003
Aperture: 3.5
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/80 s
Galleries: Studio, Digital Art

The timer was positioned perpendicularly to a fluorescent light box (ie timer rests horizontaly with a very slight tilt, light box is upright). I then shot the timer's face at an angle that would show the light box's reflection at the space precisely flanked by the timer's hands. Finally, note that the circumference of the timer's glass face is bevelled. That's why there's an extra shadow angle at the 15 sec position.

The way you got the light to shine in between the hands was incredible!

As photo's go, this is a great image. It's very sharp, clear, and the contrast is great. For the challenge though, I'm afraid in the terms I'm using to vote, this doesn't exactly fit. You definatly get points for skill though!

Definitely drawn by the "near" right angle. Nice photo !

Love how the light reflection appears within the almost right angle -10

08/06/2003 05:06:58 PM
How did you get the light that right??? Interesting photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/06/2003 03:44:44 PM
Wow, interesting, how did you get the light at the right angle like that and not get a spot of reflection any where else on the glass? Very Good.10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/06/2003 02:25:09 PM
beautifully shot - though obviously doesn\'t actually meet the challenge, despite your title. A good enough shot for me not to pull yyou down more than a single point for that though - 8. er ... 9 then. Any chance you could let me know about the lighting for this?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/06/2003 10:48:02 AM
Amazing how you got the light shining only in that top right segment there. How did you do that? Must have taken a lot of patience and setting up, but it worked!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/06/2003 09:38:40 AM
for me the round far outweights the "right"
