Love the re-shoot

I love the re-shoot! Quite a bit different. sharp and rich at the same time.

Gordon, I absolutely LOVE the changes you've made. It is so effective in fact, that when I look at the new image, my eye draw the rim of the top of the glass. I had to look at it for a long few moments to realize that it was an optical illusion and the rim of the glass does NOT infact appear in the photo. Very effective. just-married

Not sure if the link will work here, but this is how it was supposed to look :)

I had it pretty clearly in my head, it just took quite a bit of learning about lighting to
turn this rather drab rendition into the shot I was looking - shame I did it a few days
too late! Thanks for all the comments and taking the time to look.

I wish I wish there was some way you could upload your re-shot version of this. 7 for this one. 10 for your re-shot version.

It's a really cool photo but I think it would have been better if there was more light on the top rim.
09/22/2002 12:11:00 PM
Very interesting... I like it.
09/20/2002 03:34:00 PM
the glass is just a tiny bit too washed out, or this might be a winner a 10 (from me)!

I like the reflection and how it "hints" at the actual glass. karmat

Nice work. The shape is suggested only by the lighlights, the glass is otherwise not visible. It is still slightly visible, on a bright monitor or such, but the effect is creative and striking.

I like it very much. I think it is SO CLOSE. To me, the small light spot revealing the rim at the top is not quite enough to help visualize the shape of the glass. Still, concept and execution are very good. 8, just-married

Made very dark to empfasize the reflected/refracted light, but too dark to make much else out. Good idea, but needs a little more experimentation with lighting. 7

Marvelous lighting and framing! I love how the glass is mostly negative space, even though it's part of the glass. What a creative idea!
09/19/2002 09:44:00 AM
Very nice shot! I like the abstract quality.
09/18/2002 08:21:00 PM
just a teeny bit unerexposed, want just a little more out of the light we see, bet it would've produced another line or light source if you'd done something else, right? nice work though, high eight.
09/18/2002 07:27:00 AM
A good idea, but the wineglass doesn't stand out enough. I would have had to think about what it was of without your title.
09/18/2002 05:38:00 AM
This needs a little more exposure. The effect would be the same, just the subject would be a little more...visible and distinguishable while still intriguing the viewer.
09/17/2002 03:35:00 PM
For once I am gonna say I want it more centred! And the stem to be vertical! I'd like just a teeeeeny bit more of the glass edges and form to be highlighted without showing the whole object. For my tastes this one leans too heavily into the neg space without enough impact from the positive. Sorreeee...

This is great negative space and very effective lighting to achieve the image. The very subtle rim of the glass being visible makes a great difference... good shot :) = 10 - jmsetzler

Great, no superb shot, top notch artistic image (10)

I know what this is and I think it is lit up kinda cool, but I just don't really like the black background. It's just my taste. 6
09/16/2002 11:26:00 PM
I like the idea, but for some reason it doesn't seem to work for me. Maybe I would rather see more outlined glass? *shrug* - bamaster (6)
09/16/2002 04:43:00 PM
I love the darkness of it :)
09/16/2002 04:27:00 PM
Very pretty...one of my top this week. My only hang up is that the glass looks like it's leaning toward the right. Could just be the angle, or the lighting, or maybe it's just me. lol. I like the slight hint of color, and I like how the "negative space" is needed to make this photo what it is. Great job and good luck in the challenge. 9 ~Hbunch7187~

Tad too dark, but fine creative idea. Score 6 Justine
09/16/2002 11:33:00 AM
I really like the concept of this shot and the lighting is good, but almost too dark. Either way, I like this one a lot.
09/16/2002 08:30:00 AM
Nice! the darkness leaves you to imagine what's inside of it... we imagine the rest of the wine glass being there! Great!

very sexy, I love this

Excellent photo, very well set-up and executed. I would prefer another title (e.g. EMPTY) but that is the only suggestion I have. You deserve a drink for this one!
