About the Image(s)

I partly filled three goblets with wine and affixed them to a mirror which I then titled upwards. I adjusted the camera so that the bottom of my photo image would be parallel to the bottom of the goblets. The result was that it made the wine appear to be flowing upwards. The image was interesting but not particularly appealing. So, I then selected several Topaz filters to brighten the goblets with orange and green colors. And, then I used a swirl filter to add a curved image into the background.

I notice that the glasses from February are now on a tilt. I'll have some of what you are having, please! A clever piece of work that makes one stop and think. The overall effect on the glass is to bring out it's texture in an attractive way! Great job!   Posted: 05/04/2022 13:42:51

This is a refreshing graphical image which makes you want to drink the contents. It would make a wine bottle cover.   Posted: 05/10/2022 14:47:25

Very eye catching image. Topaz has done great work on the glasses and their contents. Perhaps you could have omitted the background swirl as I don't think it adds to the image - sometimes we just don't know when to stop do we?   Posted: 05/12/2022 15:14:46

Nice work. I am not sure if this "tilted glass effect" is just a complication (and maybe not necessary, but that's me)   Posted: 05/15/2022 11:04:44
