My biggest challenge was getting it level.....I swear I have a crooked eye!

***********************************************************************************
Post challenge:

Thanks everyone, thrilled with the ribbon.

Lighting setup was simple - one flash aimed at the white background, glasses placed on a mirror. If the flash is bright enough it will "wash out" any small specks on the glass & mirror, so they probably weren't as clean as they look.

Of all the glass shots on DPC, Karen, I think this one impresses me the most.

I love how "clean" it all is... and that you went with pink ... so soothing.

very interesting. besides the clarity and color what appeals to me is that varied levels of fullness or emptiness and the arrangement into a well composed piece.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/26/2011 08:25:29 PM
Oh. My. Word. HOW do you not even have a speck of dust on the mirror? This is crazy good! (not voting)

Okay, it's just another variation on the ubiquitous damn wine glass. But these gals do have a certain elegance -- like they're ready to take on the town.

I'm liking it in spite of myself.

Very well executed, nice composition, lovely colors. My only complaint would be is I'm really tired of glass images on this site. Having said this, I give you a 10.
