Challenge: Backlighting (Basic Editing I)
Camera: Sony DSC-F717
Location: My Kitchen Window
Date: Sep 6, 2004
Aperture: f 5.0
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/500
Date Uploaded: Sep 6, 2004

Set up in my kitchen window with strong direct sunlight streaming through. Yellow food coloring in the wine glass. I tried lots of setups and this seemed to work the best. I had originally just used the neighborhood as a backdrop but too many cars and houses. I moved the two christmas cactus there.

Cropped, played with hue and sat resized and unsharp mask.

The drink, glass and lemon are excellent! The busy background is not so excellent.

While this is very, very good, imo, with a plain background it could have earned a ribbon. Good try! Hope you do well .

The chill on the glass really makes this shot for me. Very refreshing looking!

One can allmost taste this color. Good lighting but the background is a bit to busy.

I like the contrast of the backlit slice and the lemon half in shadow. Very crisp

This makes me really thirsty. Very vibrant colors. I love the lemon half at the bottom left. I think the plants would work better if you sould not see the pots they were in. More of a foliage background. This is very nice on the glossy table (I'm assuming). Nice.
