I know this has been done before, but I wanted to try it anyway. Its not as easy as it looked. Getting everything lined up and the glasses clean was a pain to say the least. And since this challenge had "basic editing" rules, I knew there would be no cloning or cleaning afterwards...so that meant getting it just right the first time.

There were many many outtakes. I decided on this one because it made my eyes go in the right direction when viewing.

Hope it does well!

I'm really shocked/disappointed this didn't win, or at least place higher. The imagery is stunning!

i think i recognize the artist (i.e. //www.dpchallenge.com/image.php?IMAGE_ID=20998). the question is...is it the same artist?

1,000% for composition, detail and contrasts. Really nice image. Must have taken a good bit of effort to set up the perspective so perfectly. Congratulations.

nice contrast of colours.

Nice photo of a regular theme. One of the more interesting of the glass, bottle, etc backlighting shots. Just slightly dark, imo.

Not the first of these I've seen... hence your title... I like your choice of colors and your decision to make the field behind the glasses quite large with the light dropping off at the outside. This works excellently.

well done 9
09/09/2004 07:37:40 PM
LOL! Nice work!

Good title, colors and lighting but similar images have been used so many times in various challages.

Cool design. great elements here.
09/08/2004 10:14:58 PM
Clever idea. I think you could crop it much tigher and still get the idea. I like it though. Also could be brighter.
09/08/2004 03:35:48 PM
Since I can't give it a 9.9, You may as well just take a 10.

Wow, this looks a magazine advertisement. Very professional looking. The lines are very pleasing to the eye. The glasses almost look like someone's behind. :) A very clean, crisp shot.

Popular shot around these parts... very well executed though.
