Placed the camera in the bottom of a trash can from the house. Set the timer and helr the water bottle from a string of fishing line. Shot was taken at 28mm with flash.

Crop, selective color, brightness and contrast, unsharp mask, and cloned out a small piece of fishing line you could see.

Nice sillouette! So the first question is, how long did it take you to get this image? :) Great idea. I love the clouds, and the circular trash can creates a great crop. 7

Good job in difficult lighting conditions. It would have been great if somehow the whole opening of the trash can could have been included in the frame.

This is a very nice, original shot. Slight nitpick: maybe the rim of the waste bin could have its centre closer to the centre of the image? Would also have done well in "Central Composition".

Great unusual viewpoint - original and clever. Your selection to use backlighting and a silhouetted subject excellent. Strong entry.

Thought of this, but you had the talent to execute it perfectly.

Good concept. I like that the front of the bottle is lit, but not the person.
