Superb. K.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

Excellent, lovely tones. A slight criticism though (seeing as it's an arranged image) I would have positioned the glasses so that they were central front to back as i can see the base of the stem on the left more on the rear glasses than the front one. Then again I may have a touch of OCD.

I like it. I get what John says about the base of the stem, a little cloning would keep the nice clean lines. I think I would have liked all the reflection in the shot better than it just stopping.
But great shot

I know what i like, If not always why.

Thank you for all the comments so far, I agree with the stem that's out slightly, its the glasses themselves, they were cheapish supermarket ones and not exact identical copies, I did line up the bases with a try square and straight edge to get the best possible line.

See, I remember a thread on here a long time back regarding the difference between photography and art ( if there is a difference ).
To me, this is what make photography art. Not just the technical ability to produce the shot, but having the idea in the first place.
I love this shot!
I only wish I could sit here and dream up something like this whilst pondering what to do with my camera.

I do agree with Derek, though, about having the whole reflection, but maybe the size of the tile prevented this?
Getting there! Thanks to you guys

Thanks Father Ted, your right, the tile wasn't long enough to capture the whole reflection, tbh, this isn't what I started out to capture, I couldn't get my first idea right in camera and this just came about by experimentation.

Now that is what i love about photography, it can be so fluid in the sense that it can evolve.
Sometimes for the better, (sometimes not )
Lots of my stuff is like that, id have an idea or maybe just a tinkle in the back of my mind somewhere, and what i ended up with wouldn't match with my idea, not always a bad thing

So it's not the result you wanted -- it's a jolly good result whatever you wanted !
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Really like this... So much dynamism and movement for a static subject...

Thanks David

I started off with a white tile and a blue background back lit, then went white tile, white bg, then this image, diffusing the LED light more, and a black tile.
