Challenge: Fruits and Vegetables II (Advanced Editing V)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM
Location: My Dining Room
Date: Feb 11, 2007
Aperture: F/14
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/250
Galleries: Advertisement, Food and Drink
Date Uploaded: Feb 11, 2007

I shot this on my dining room table. I connected a 5 foot pvc pipe to the faucet going straight back through the orange and through the background (blue blanket on foamcore) to an L bend going up to a make shift funnel. The close end of the pipe was supported with fishing line hing from a reflector holder. There's an umbrella/580ex to the left triggered by the ST-E2, and a silver reflector on the right. I had my wife pour the orange juice in the back while I held the glass and released the shutter a bunch of times with the remote.

Here's what the setup looked like for those interested:

Thank you everybody for your nice comments and the ribbon! This is awesome! Thank you!

It's a very creative and good idea. I think it would make a good add. One thing, I think a less strait on angle would add to the interest of the photo.

I hope this wins! it's so perfectly executed!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/14/2007 08:54:17 AM
Excellent concept, exposure, color (background is complimentary but not so vivid it detracts from main subject). 8 and may get bump to 9 later.

very creative and clever
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/13/2007 03:35:50 PM
Great concept, beautiful processing. Color, composition, lighting and the vignetting are perfect. Top notch image despite the spiggot is off level compared to the rest of the image.

Clever set-up and very good execution. Love the backlighting that gives the main objects a soft glow. Lighting is spot on illuminating all subjects very well so that we can 'drink' in the details of this image - no distracting reflections or glare on the glass even!
