Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Deja Vu II (Advanced Editing IV)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM
Location: San Antonio Texas
Date: Mar 23, 2006
Aperture: f 5.0
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/13
Date Uploaded: Mar 23, 2006

Idea came from Rikki's "Lemon Drop" Blue Challenge entry.

Background is a computer screen showing a fractal. Head to World Market and find a martini style glass... end up with two. Next to the grocery store to buy a jar of olives (even though I only need one). The glass has bacardi rum (don't have vodka or gin... not sure why I have rum since I drink beer). Lights on either side (mother-in-law thinks I'm crazy as I bought some clip lights for this).

RawShooter Premium:
- levels
- crop/level

Photoshop Elements 4.0:
- Brightness/Contrast
- curves
- saturation (some selective)
- sharpen
- resize for web


note: Rikki's is better. It has more punch with the fractals in the back and the cup. I tried to get a fractal to have similar properties but couldn't get my tool to do it (and I didn't have enought time to play with it). Anyway, it was a fun shoot.

I like your interpertation on Rikki's "Lemon Drop". The olive is fanastic. I have added this as a favorite.

Great score with this one! Love the fractals... and you know, it might have been interesting with beer... :-)

A little over-saturated for me, otherwise, nice composition and lighting, crisp focus.

The background (computer screen?) is too bright and the details of the glass are lost... still a great rendition.

Bah! This DNMC! hehehehe! Great shot and superb interpretation. I love how you took my shot and created and made it your own ;) Kudos! Seems like the lighting turned out ok for this shot. I know a lot of people had a hard time capturing the catch light on the rim of the glass ;) Thanks for this lovely Deja Vu image ;)

Cheers,

Rikki
