This week topic is Weekly Photo Challenge: Together which is my third attempt to participate. In this picture I provide wine together with its holder. Also, we can see the object together with its reflection. Hope you enjoy it. I shoot it using my Canon EOS 40D and Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM Standard Zoom Lens.
oh i just love this bottle stand….and the reflection just adds to the theme!! Love the interpretation!
Thank you for visiting my blog and for your honest comment. Glad you like it 🙂
Great shot you have there =)
Thank you. Glad you like it 🙂
I love wine stands, and this one is simple yet classy! I want it! The shadow looks great too!
Glad you like it 🙂 I bought it at Vietnam. You will go to Beijing, right? I believe you can find some there.
Great! Can’t wait to shop there!
Have a nice shopping trip 🙂
Thank you 🙂
Thank you, Jude, for visiting my blog and for your honest comment. Glad you like it 🙂
Beautiful…what I like best? The ‘bend’ in the bottle in the reflection. Awesome
Thank you, Rhonda. Actually that ‘bend’ is accident occurred. Glad you like it 🙂
I love it and it makes the photo that much more unique. I’d hang that one on my wall in a New York minute!
Glad to know that it created such uniqueness. Myself don’t realize that bendy bottle 🙂 Such an honor. I feel flattered and get red in the face. 🙂
Lovely reflection! I didn’t notice the bendy bottle until Rhonda mentioned it, but now that I see it, that part makes it even better!
Thank you, Josy, for visiting my blog and for your honest comment. Glad you like my photo. 🙂 However, may I know why you like the bendy bottle part? Shouldn’t it be have the equal proportion?
From what I’ve seen, your aesthetic is a sort of studio-perfect look, so I can understand why you wouldn’t like that “flaw.” But to me, as a professional 3D animator and amateur photographer, the whole beauty of real photography vs. fake 3D models is that reality is flawed; if I want a perfect shot of a wine bottle, why not do it with CG? It’s the little unexpected surprises of photography that amuse and delight— as in life!
In this shot, it’s well-lit, well-exposed, an interesting subject, blah blah blah. A good photograph. But— please forgive me, and note that I say this only to make a point— common. Usual. Normal. Nothing special. The part that MAKES it special, to me, is that almost unnoticeable asymmetry between the bottle and its reflection. It’s a subtle detail that (a) when the viewer eventually notices it, he/she feels like he/she has been let in on an inside joke, (b) can be interpreted as a concept piece (reality vs. what we see in our reflections… especially if you were to push the distortion a little further), and (c) is the sort of detail that a CG artist probably wouldn’t have thought to include; you’d probably only get this effect in a real studio with real lights and real wine bottles.
And as “flaws” in photos go, this is way cooler than, say, an errant lens flare. 😉
Again, this is my personal amateur view, and I know a lot of professional studio photographers don’t share my opinion about this. 🙂
Wow this is a classy photo critic comment and the best reply ever. Now I can learn something that “flaw” for me can be an interesting point for someone. Thank you, Josy, you injected me with new knowledge about asymmetry interpretation 🙂
Thank you 😀
Very creative and well shot!!
