|Graphicfunk's double exposure. I love the original 10x more than my own shot.
When the challenge was announced, I immediately knew what I wanted to do. Tried about 20 times on weekend, failed miserably, gave up. Of course, today is Thursday, the deadline is looming. I took the kids to bed, sat down with my wife, and around 10:00 or so decided to give it a try. setup: bottle of wine (italian chianti, Barone Ricasoli 2002 - not bad, recommend it), one small kitchen bowl for mixing stuff, one glass, and a bottle of San Pelegrino. (I drank the pelegrino for the outtakes, this was taken with regular water.)
cut out half-circle (the same I used for my other double exposure shots), set the slave flash to illuminate the white cardboard background, and used the speedlite in my hand as a trigger and as a light source for the liquids.
Set the shutter on bulb, exposed top half while pouring wine into the bowl. switched the bowl for the glass of water, turned filter by Pi, poured water and exposed lower half.
I think the light on the bottle should have been better. If I had more time, I would have done it. The mistake: I was paying too much attention on the overlap and thickness of wine and water... only after I got them perfect I realized that the exposure was way off... too late now to retake.
curves adjustment layer used with the gradient map to level the light on the background, some cloning (of sensor dirt and some drops of water on the table, the wine/water overlapped perfectly.)
