The Reflection which is on focus would give us a new perspectiVe regarding to the shape of the cup ...
since the real scene ( the background ) would be in the out of focuS mode ..
thats why i used the Shallow Depth of field :>

Wow...what an intriguing concept...depth of field blur but still having the background in focus! I like this (9)

Very cool idea!

On vacation I want to drink in the city, and now you show how possible that is. Limiting the colors to blues and yellows keeps this composition simple and artistic. Nicely done.

I can't say it's "hidden", but it is a nice photo.

Very cool image. The colors work well, the idea is really cool. Well done. (there is a bit of static at the bottom of the glass though, but that's the only thing.)

Common technique, but it works here.

Great image!

Beautiful reflection in wine glass. Blue glass beautiful. Very creative; excellent composition. Top & bottom of glass poorly focused; background could show more detail.
12/28/2007 01:31:16 PM
Very well done... nothing to say beyond that!
12/28/2007 01:28:22 PM
Certainly an unusual perspective of the town!

Lovely lovely shot and great idea. Bet you wish you'd cleaned that glass a bit better eh? :)
12/27/2007 08:04:08 PM
Very nice - a very different perspective.
12/27/2007 05:23:22 AM
Achieving the effect may be simple, but the art is in how and when to to use it. Great shot!

This is it!! Love it!

Interesting take on the challenge topic! I really like the look and feel of this shot.

From it's orientation, I'd say it must be in Australia. You Know..."Down Under!" :}

Very good...There are times when you think that you have seen it all in terms of refractive images through filled glasses and then an image comes along that adds a different dimension. this is one of those images. Splendid clarity of the buildings and the yellow and blues work well together

Good job
12/26/2007 12:26:00 PM
Awesome idea!
