A little too dark

i think the lighting here is a bit too low for the effect you want. improvement on lighting and angle would make this stronger. nice job.

Under exposed. Does not give me the feel of ice.

There is a bit of noise, isn't there?

too dark for my taste although what I do see is nicely situated in the frame and clear of focus. My problem with this is that if you didn't tell us ice was int eh glass, I would have had to guess. Try using just a small bit of light to help define all the items present, even if you want the picture to have dark overtones. Something soft. Even if you don't have the expensive lights and covers and filters and such, you can improvise. I have many times used table lamps, reading lights and so on either by themselves or with a cloth draped over the bulb. In this case... maybe a 7 watt night light with a white t-shirt draped over it might get the subtlety you were shooting for, and the clarification of the contents I would like.

Nice photo otherwise!

Wow - amazingly dark.

It maybe ice but, it does not appear to honor winter.

Way too dark to see anything... I can see the glass of ice, but light would be good here.

Too dark
02/28/2007 03:32:59 PM
Would hope for better lighting.

I think its a little too dark, and there isnt much to capture the eye...nice idea though.
02/28/2007 12:12:00 PM
way to underexposed, there is no detail in the image and as a result of the low light loads of noise. This could have been a great shot if there were more light on the subject :(

good idea but very dark
02/28/2007 10:28:20 AM
