Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Ice (Basic Editing)
Camera: Nikon D200
Lens: Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX DC HSM for Nikon
Location: Melbourne Australia
Date: Feb 26, 2007
Aperture: F1.4
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/5000
Galleries: Still Life, Food and Drink
Date Uploaded: Feb 25, 2007

Basically, another food shot for me. Outdoors in the shade with a reflector. Then by making some levels and colour adjustments I ended up with a nice blue background, despite the fact that it was white!

I know there might be a few ice images in glasses, but I figured I liked the result and entered it.

I used a tripod, but when I saw my shutter speed of 1/5000 at the editing stage, I wondered why I bothered!

Levels, curves, colour adjustments, USM, Noise Ninja, crop, border...not necessarily in that order.

6.0???

Here's hoping!

Great colours and the DOF's good too. I just wish the glasses were in alignment. Still super though.

I like the colors used in this image. It has a very nice look and feel to it, especially with the dof. Nice job.

I love the colors, and the sharpness on the closest glass. I feel that with a stronger composition, this would be just that one step better.

It maybe ice but, it does not appear to honor winter.
