Marvelous. I'm going to have to try this sometime.

did about 3 hours of playing with the LED.
my new PB (score and place) and almost a ribbon! ;)

i agree that tighter crop might be nicer yes.
thank you for the votes and all the comments!

maybe if the 'lighting' was white or blue it would look better. it looks more like fire than lighting.

Fabulous image!

I may or may not be voting, so please do not equate my comment with any score.

Excellent lighting on the bottle, and creative wiggles around it.

The two long wiggles on the top left are distracting quite a bit from the bottle. A closer crop to cut them out would improve the picture quite a bit I think.

Also, the double reflection on the bottom from the glass mirror is a little bit jarring. A single reflection from a plastic board should improve that and make it a perfect pic.

I like the concept and the picture is crisp but the lightning is a little squiggly

I love this. My only small critique is the cropping. I would've preferred the vertical crop of this, or at least not so square, but it's minimal. It must've taken you a lot of shots to achieve this!

Pretty cool lighting, well done, my top pick for the challenge and a pick for a ribbon. 10 + Favorite

I love your idea here. The orange lighting is adding such a nice color and complementing the blues in the bottle beautifully (which could be a bit stronger, possibly). I wish it wasn't so top-weighted though. I think shifting the bottle down to closer to the bottom of the frame and extending the lightning higher would create a more pleasant composition. The lightning (which it is also doing now) would pull the viewer's eyes to the bottle beautifully.

10, for excellence.

Pretty neat. I would have taken the plastic off the bottle though.
