I was thinking that instead of taking a shot and rotating it for the challenge, that it might be more interesting to take a different approach. The idea here was to shoot an object that gets cropped off because of the horizontal plane. Therefore it would have fit better if it was shot in vertical. But I'm thinking that I did not convey that idea well to the majority of the voters. No surprise there really.

And I send love and kisses to all the commenters :)

Another one of my highest votes went to this one, so at least some thoroughly appreciated your shot :)

Even a plastic bottle appreciates a good view. The perspective is wonderful

I can't really describe why I like your shot, but I really do. It's got a strangely dystopic feel to it.

I love it when people make pictures of everyday objects, and make them look like something spectacular. This is one of those. A simple plastic bottle, but it looks so beautiful here, with that angled bright light coming at it and shining through it, and with the blurred, almost moving background.

The composition is just right. The bottle, personifying an observer, is looking at yet pulling away from a wildish scene, awed to the point of bending backwards by that light. OK, so I'm exaggerating, but that's what it looks like. I love the sharp and more coloured bottle cap, a perfect topper to the whole thing.

As for fit to the challenge topic, like many pictures in the challenge it plays with horizontal/vertical without strongly addressing the topic, but well enough to fit. ~9

You made an empty Gatorade bottle beautiful and winsome. Great image.
