About the Image(s)

This set up was done 2 years ago, the glass was put in a small aquarium filled with water and I dropped a citron sleeve several times in it and used a flash on the back behind an opal plate glass.

In PS I developed all chosen images with the same setting and calculated the size, so that each image meets to get 4 images into 1920 x 1080.

So each image was taken separate and than arranged.

Your conversion to monochrome is perfect. It is so much more striking and tells the story without the distraction of color.   Posted: 02/04/2021 09:53:17

Dirk, another amazing proof of your amazing (and I must add, patient and methodical) practice in the studio environment!

What can I say, this is a wonderfully executed project! Both technically and visually brings to the forefront your skills in hand and eye.

Thank you for sharing!   Posted: 02/08/2021 06:14:58

Thank you for providing the explanation of how you made this image. I imagine there was significant trial and error before you arrived at the final product and perhaps more complicated than your stated steps imply. Anyway, the image looks sophisticated and polished. The progression of the citron slice splashing into the martini glass is interesting and well captured. In the B&W conversion it is the way the splashes progress that draw my eye. In the duotone color image, it is the color that takes center stage.   Posted: 02/19/2021 19:35:32

A marvelous shot (shots). Beautifully done. This would look great in any bar! Love the water movement detail throughout!   Posted: 02/21/2021 15:03:20
