Challenge: Education (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Kodak DCS Pro SLR/n
Location: My Office
Date: Mar 9, 2006
Aperture: F/3.7
ISO: 50
Shutter: 1/3.6
Galleries: Still Life, Studio
Date Uploaded: Mar 9, 2006

Flasks set in front of computer monitor on piece of glass. I calibrated the white balance to the monitor and used a tripod. Bumped the contrast in Photoshop a bit to make it \"pop\". Darn basic editing meant I had to leave a couple of water spots on the flasks that I would have cloned out. Fun shot, I expect it will sell well as stock.

Man, this is great. I didn't vote on all and somehow missed it but it is very deserving of 4th place.

I could see this in some science classroom with some text at the top of it :-D

Ah here is an artistic one, clever thinking and good work...

Very nice indeed. You have captured the content of the the vials without loosing the definition of the glass. Kind of a funky background pattern, but it fits well.

Ahhh... A refreshing take on the challenge. Thank you! ;^) Well done. Fun color, good subject (beakers), nice lighting and reflections. I do wish the DOF was a little deeper to put the front beaker in focus. Good luck in the challenge.

I know the background is there for a reason I just find it distracting and the out of focus element to it, horrid.

Wowsers. Cerebral meets psychodelic! Very cool. This is kind of like the classic types of wine glass, bottle type shots done with the chemistry flasks. Cool. Fits the challenge great, very creative. Great lighting. Nice composition. Nice reflections. Just a great idea and execution for this challenge. I quite like it. Nice job. :-)

Love the idea - but the green is rather distracting - I don't think it enhances the image as much as you might expect, also seems to be a wee bit crooked - maybe a very slight rotate and my preference I think would have been for each beaker to be in focus as it appears the one in front has a softer focus. Good idea and title though - meets the challenge well - good job :)

Cool shot with good exposure, focus and composition but not enough "education" for me.

The darkness at the top makes it hard to see the end of the graduated pipette.
