Wow Arancha!!!

Para ser tu primer intento te ha quedado genial. Me gusta mucho la iluminación contorneando el dacantador simetricamente, la composición es magnífica, el detalle del blanco partido del fondo... gorgeous!

Felicidades por el 9º puesto.

Voy a tener que ponerme las pilas y empezar a enviar fotos...

Very neat. I love the look of this image. By taking a light source and creating an unexpected contrast, you were able to take this challenge to another level. Good job 10

I hope you don't get comments like..."its been done".

Excellent comp, great idea even for something that has been done before, I love the lighting, I love the color against the b&w, the blacks are dipping into the abyss and the whites are blown but because of the color contrast it works, nice movement, nice lines, good job

looks like you have some jagged edges there on the glass, but an amazing shot nonetheless

Excellent job ;) although it seems like two light source, it might be illusion :)

I love this one. It has a very chic, sophisticated look to it. I really like how the contours of the objects are illuminated and defined.

nice photo, but it's pretty obvious u didn't really use a single light source ( I'd consider a reflector as a second one, as well as a lightbox divided by a shade)

single light source?
