About the Image(s)

During a May trip to Ireland, I had an opportunity to tour the Waterford Crystal showroom and production facility. I didn't appreciate how manual the whole process is - with individual items having hundreds of cuts; each of which must be perfect. Visible in this image are stencil markings on the glass - depicting where the cuts are to be made. See this craftsman's concentration - submitted this month to Group 87.


iPhone 14. Ambient light. 76mm (equiv) lens. Edits in Lr/Ps and B&W conversion in Silver Efex.

The iPhone sure does a nice job with this Steve. Your caption helps me understand the story. I think I prefer the wider version you posted in group 87, as the story is more readily understood. But nicely done just the same.   Posted: 07/03/2024 16:53:59

Thank Jack. I agree that the image posted in Group 87 is a more interesting/complete.   Posted: 07/07/2024 07:36:42

I love the hands holding the glass! Like your explanation too.

think I actually prefer the color photo because I'm finding whatever that "rough fabric thing" distracting in the b&w but I don't find that to be the case in the color version.   Posted: 07/03/2024 21:24:14

You make a good point - in the color - the hands pop more . . . and that pad on his chest is less distracting. I could also tone it down in the B&W. Thank you.
