Lit with a Vivitar 285HV, using a shoot-through umbrella.

Color enhanced in PS, slight crop.


Thanks for the wonderful comments all, and the fav Shez!

I rather like the awkward, empty space of the left. The space on the bottom is to see the reflection off the surface. =)

Wish I had a softbox for my flash for a nicer catchlight.

Great lighting. Star is on the thirds but the negative space on the left bothers me a bit. Good PP. Good job exposing the glass. Glass is very hard - with blown out highlights usually. You did really well with controlling the exposure and with PP. Very nice.

Fabulous color & imagery. I only wish I didn't see the umbrella reflection in the glass (I know its hard!)

Needs another big piece of glass on the far left to complete the background. Love the colors and reflections. Very crisp, clean feeling.

The positioning of the objects in the right of the frame seems odd.

Beautiful! Unfortunately I can see your catch light many, many times in the reflections. It's a very nice photo though.

I like this loving the glasses, I do think the starfish seems a bit out of place, imo without it would've worked way better overall, lighting is not DRAMATIC but its good 7

JA JA I live in the Caribbean and that is the least your going to find! Of course is a great amazing beautiful extraordinary place - but all that shiny stuff, only at hotels. Nice photo!

Do I see the reflection of 2 light sources? I like the blue but I find the crop/composition awkward. Too much space at the bottom and not enough at top.

fantastic light, like the pastel colors and collected subjects. not too sure about the composition as its heavy on the right but lacking on the left still 8
