This was a very impromptu shoot to make the deadline for this challenge. Lighting is just the fixture above the dining room table. I am not at all happy with it but didn't have time to figure out how to soften the shadows to avoid all the designs on the wall. Editing was simple, just a slight crop and cooled the temps to get the right shade of green(wall is actually grey/blue).

Thanks for the comments, this was the first DPC challenge i have entered. I actually only had an hour to shoot and edit so i am not very happy with how everything turned out. i hate the "alien" on the wall but was using natural light from my dining room fixture. practice practice practice!

love the shapes and colours and that repeated motif in the glasses and on the wall. oh, and the way that recessively dark bouteille divides the pea green wall from the adjacent grass green wall.

looks like an alien on the wall. I love the randomness and soothing green gold of this shot.

I appreciate the geometry in this, but I wish there was a touch more light on the bottle and glasses.
