Cut shapes out of black paper and taped the paper to a window looking out at the garden.

Slight crop, viveza 2, selective colors, flip horizontal.

My choice of beverage is Tanqueray, so this is definitely a 'bottle shape' not an original bottle.

I defo appreciate the unique concept here- I look forward to reading about how you executed this 'burn out' effect. I'm not nuts about the floating aspect of the subjects and I'm wanting more *pop* from the colors. I feel like this is such a good idea, but somehow it falls just below the mark for me...

I'm really enjoying this idea. The only thing I don't like is the dark strip in the bottle.

I'm not crazy about this since the shapes are very awkward but it is overall well executed.

A nice idea but i thought the backround subject could have been a bit more interesting ( pastoral to me gives thoughts of cows meadows etc). would it have made an interesting shot without the cutout in front? also the wonky martini glass kept drawing my eye, guess im a little autistic!

Did you shoot the landscape with this cutout in front of the lens? Clever.
