Gourds Reflection by Kieu-Hanh Vu

November 2021 - Gourds Reflection

About the Image(s)

I love those cute gourds, so I bought several of them for my pictures this month. I set them up on top of the black glass to get the reflection.

Capture them using my Iphone and process using Snapseed: sharpen, enhance color, crop, and frame.

Just love this, Kieu-Hanh, thanks for showing that one doesn't need an expensive SLR camera etc to make a beautiful compelling image. The layout, simplicity, and reflection all work to make this top notch.   Posted: 11/05/2021 21:29:16

What a great idea for creating a subtle reflection, Kieu-Hanh! This looks like a PSA Journal front cover. ;-) The arrangement is perfect and the varied shapes and colors as well. I think groups of 3 are always a good number for shooting a subject like this.   Posted: 11/06/2021 14:11:21

How lovely, Kieu-Hanh! This is a simple, yet gorgeous still life. Absolutely beautiful on black glass. Wonderful image!   Posted: 11/08/2021 10:58:56

Gourdgeous image! Nice color, contrast, textures, lines, shapes and composition (rule of odds!). The gourds pop off the black background and the reflection (does that make it six?) have a beautiful glow. ONLY suggestion - some spot / smudge control on the reflection. This looks like competition quality and would be interested to know what you do.   Posted: 11/08/2021 20:12:27

Thanks everyone for your comments. I agree with Gene that there are some spots on the reflection that need to be removed.   Posted: 11/10/2021 23:18:58
