I'm having a difficult time determining what the moving object is in this photo... is it a hammer? I guess I don't understand the relationship between the unknown object and the ring... - setzler

Comment by bod:
A different meaning, and a nice ring. The black thing is a bit distraacting though.
Hope this isn't for real!

A really cool idea but I can't figure out what the thing at the top of the shot is. DPz

Ouch! Been there, done that... Very interesting and unique view of the challenge. Technically appealing as well... Great job! The blur on the hammer is almost too much to identify it. You may have done better with a tad less motion. But that's just my opinion...

Overall, the image is a tad dark, I think. The duel reflection is nice though. karmat

There is a lot going on in this photo - way too much.

It is a great idea for the challenge and the title is perfect. I think the idea is worth reshooting to make a great photo (suppose the grapes are gone by now). The colors are great and the shapes are sensuously round - I especially like the round blob on the stem of the glass that matches the grapes.

However, the whole thing is just too busy! And unfortunately the thing that draws the eye is the screw cap on the wine bottle because it's color and focus are harsher. The rest of the photo has a lovely soft look. The cap balances the glas stem on the right and the big grapes on the left to make a visual triagle, but it's defests dominate the effect.


Obviously the lighting is a problem as many pointed out, too glaring on both sides. Pay careful attention to unwanted elements in the background, the spoon on the refrig is also distracting.

How about recropping the photo? the glass on the left isn't necessary, though it;s grapes are. the cooler blue background on the right is better than the black on the left. If you crop just to the right of that vertical stem I think it looks better. Can you get the base of the glass and the bottle back? They look cut short and the rounded shapes of both would have added to the compossition. Then take the cap off the bottle and scrape the label off the glass.

It really could have been a much better photo with a few changes. It is worth trying again. A photo is only as good as it's worst elements (sad to say). The lighting and the cropping decisiosn both spoil this one. I gave it a 4 - just below average.

Neat idea but like me you may want to learn to control your light exposure better.
