Glad to see you in abstrac still-life land. Very nice effect...rather electric. :)

Well, of course, I was working off of some amazing inspiration.

In fact, I didn't even realize how closely I'd matched your photo because my original intent was to put the paper in front of the glass in an attempt to create silhouettes. Which I did here.

But then the glass was so beautiful itself, and I had something like this in mind in which it almost looks like a cross section of the glass.

Lovely color here :) Apparently I've been too busy looking around in the basement for things to shoot, I should start looking in the cupboards...

Lovely colour and shape.

Posted by: Simon at January 12, 2005 03:36 AM


This is very appealing. The lighting, the colors, the shapes. Really nice.

Excellent composition to focus on the shape of this glass. Gorgeous color, too.

Gorgeous color and lighting. I love how the glass at it's top seems to disappear into the unknown.

This is gorgeous! Love the inside-out glow. Great one!

Posted by: Charles at January 12, 2005 05:15 PM


nice light and glow indeed, very nice.

Wow! love this shot! the color is so captivating...great photo!

This is great. I think it's really different from chiaroscuro's photo. I think yours is more about the texture of the glass, while hers is more about the abstract shape of the glasses (IMHO). I really like it - I like how strong the glass seems. I also like the blotchy pattern of light.

Thanks all. I'm glad you like this one.

If you're interested, read here for more info on my set-up. The only difference in method between this one and the other is that in this photo, the paper is between the martini glass and the light. In the other photo, the paper is in front of both the glass and the light.

Actually, as glass shots go, I think ours are very different. My version is quite a bit calmer, and yours is more wild and intense--this mood happens to be very suited to the type of glass you used, too! You get a very different effect from having put the glass right up to the lightsource versus diffusing it with paper.

I agree with everybody else. Great shot!

everyone said it already. the colors. the tight crop. everything...simply beautiful.

As the image downloaded it had a sensuous appeal - abstract, yet evocative. Well done. Maybe shot before but always new when done well.

Posted by: brita at January 13, 2005 02:25 PM


Wow. Nice! Gorgeous lighting.

Posted by: Colin at January 13, 2005 09:22 PM


Very well done, gorgeous colors.

Posted by: Anand Sankaran at January 14, 2005 07:21 PM


Really like this photo. Those warm hues are just amazing, that and the gradient.

Posted by: Eric at January 16, 2005 11:13 PM


Waw great harmonious colors. Very nice detail.
This shot is hot !


Posted by: Sakana at January 18, 2005 04:34 PM


Nice work, wonderful colours - strong composition.

Posted by: deceptive at January 18, 2005 06:18 PM


This is absolutely stunning. I also really like your lepidoptera photos et. all. I didn't know there were such wonderful things to be seen in baltimore! I'm also interested to hear that you are part of an informal photo group in baltimore... I live in Towson- would you guys mind having another amateur enthusiast join you? :)

I really dont think you need more comments on this, but I loved the concept. Looks better than an actual sunrise to me. But the more I kept staring I thought the picture was off centre. Either it is or my eyes are popping out.

Posted by: Harpreet at March 16, 2005 09:21 AM


Harpreet, Good eyes! I checked, and you're right. It is shifted a little (less than a 1/4 of an inch) towards the right. I hadn't even noticed that!

But I am starting to notice things like this more and more, the more I do photography. I used to point and shoot and be able if something looked "interesting". Now I'm realizing there are so many little things to pay attention to if I want the final image to look really polished.

Thanks for your comment!

I just need to pile on..

This is Great, with a capital G.
If this doesn't get a noteworthy, then I don't know what should :)

Posted by: pierre at March 25, 2005 02:15 PM


Congrats on the noteworthy. Well done...nice shot. Love the reds. -T

I'm surprized do see that this photo reminded nobody of female crotch. So besides everything mentioned it's mysterious in it's own way.

Posted by: mario at March 29, 2005 04:20 PM


Congrats on the noteworthy ... Lovely saturated colors

Posted by: Mydepiction at April 3, 2005 03:53 AM
