A glass of milk taken against a white background during a brief gravity shift. Actually, this took a bit of work involving epoxy, tools and a helpful assistant.

Rotate, crop, dust, saturation, contrast, USM. I hope you enjoy.

Thanks all for the nice comments. I do get that the horizon isn't tilted technically, but wanted to do something a bit unique for the challenge. And, due to the "no healing brush" rule, I couldn't clean up the raw edge of the posterboard against the background.

Setup shot is at //www.woodstonephoto.com/blog/2009/02/tilt.html if anyone's interested. I incidentally used the glass-on-a-pole as a beverage scepter for Mardi Gras. :)

those people who said you didn't have a tilted horizon can stuff it! you did! you just straightened it! The white on white on white really brings out the contrast of the glass. Well played.

Beautiful shot and very interesting, and fun!

A rather dull shot enhanced by the tilt.
02/21/2009 09:45:15 AM
cool image.

I have this sneaking suspicion about GLUE!!!! LOL!!! Really well done! 9

Can't wait to read on how this was done. Simple, but a perfect match for the challenge.
02/20/2009 05:11:16 PM
I had this type of idea as well, but I was afraid that people would score it down because the horizon in the picture isn't tilted. I hope you're not having that problem!
02/20/2009 12:31:59 PM
Instead of photographing a horizon in a tilted manner, you have, instead, literally tilted the horizon point and photographed it, good thinking! I like it!

What a wonderful shot...I love the bubble at the base of the glass. It adds a great element to the shot.
02/19/2009 09:38:36 PM
This is an interesting twist on the tilt challenge. I love it!
02/19/2009 03:08:47 PM

Good trick.
02/18/2009 07:47:19 PM
This is a wonderful photo. I don't know how you did it. The horizon is definitely straight but not the horizon in the glass. Very creative.
02/18/2009 06:42:24 PM
Clever shot...pity the horizon's not tilted.
02/18/2009 05:56:26 PM
This just has to finish in the top 10 if not ribbon. VERY clever. Great execution with the lighting, shadows, reflection, milk consistency. Love the gradient background. Just a tiny bit of roughness on the "horizon". My first 10 for this challenge.
02/18/2009 05:34:41 PM
Very creative. Nice use of the tilted horizon theme
02/18/2009 03:31:29 PM
Cool idea!

just the image to debate over where the horizon really is. Doesn't really matter to me. Shot nicely captured, lighting is good. 6

Simple... but interesting.
02/18/2009 12:15:52 AM
haha very very clever, and nice photo imagery. But the horizon isn't tilted, still a 6
