    J.p.,
    Thank you for your entry!
    It's a good shot, yet I think it would be even better (for this assignment, at leaset, if not in general) to have a much tighter crop on the window itself, either in framing, or in PP... IMHO the rest of the image just adds a lot of boring negative space that brings nothing positive to the picture, would you agree? ne_nau.gif

    Good one, again!
    I'd fiddle with the crop a bit, the remnant of the pillar on the left and some stuff on the bottom distract me, but other than that - it's a good glass:-)

    This is an extremely heavy bubble glass ashtray I got at a thrift store 20 years ago. I love it, it's gorgeous. Not sure which shot I like better.

    Glass experiment with dark field lighting. I think I need a little more room to play with this some and get better control over the light and reflections in the the room. We'll give it another try later.

    Shot this one tonight.

    And since I thought this one required a set-up shot:

    I also had an umbrella high to image right to accentuate the metal rings.

    Pulled a muscle in my back so am sort of confined to my house. Though it would be a good time to see if there were some assignments to try. Does this count for the glass one?

    986819570_yRChK-L.jpg

    Shot into a small soft box with the center area covered with black material to get the bulbs edge definition and background. Bulb is set up on a dimmer switch set very low.

    Dave,
    I like the image a lot. iloveyou.gif
    But as far as this assignment goes - it's a no go. ne_nau.gif
    The glass part is nearly invisible (transparency is a b1tch, ain't it?;-). The only visible part is its profile, but at that point it's not even clear (pun intended) whther it's a glass or somthing else. headscratch.gif
    Again, please read the lead post for requirement details. deal.gif

    Thanks Nik. I guess it's back to the drawing board. It was fun to shoot though and was pretty happy with the results. I re-read the instructions and see your point. This would be better if the topic was 'filament', but not glass.

    Too much background in this one?

    Dave,
    it's a better fit than the previous attempt, but I think I agree with you - again, glass transparency has played ya.
    Maybe having a larger distance between the glass and the bg would have helped?
