Richard, I like the soft, creamy and delicious look that you accomplished here. I don't know what's in those glasses, and if it's just milk, don't tell me because I really want it to be eggnog.

Richard, I like the shot overall but I think the most dramatic aspect is the white frame with that ever so small black inner line.

Presentation is crucial and in this case very well done.

I must amend my post because this shot made me go back and re-look at the others. Three of you incorporated this added touch. Kudos to you

Thanks for the compliments. The most difficult aspect was lighting, I could not use flash becuase it reflected round the glasses, so I used the kitchen light and pulled it down quite close. Even so, the original was very dark and I had to make it a little lighter. Also getting the shot was not easy. I did it on a table, the glasses placed on white paper (I also had to edit out the obvious paper joins with the clone tool), with the camera on a tripod pointing almost straight down. It was quite a lengthy process, took about 2 hours with preparing, taking, and editing. I hope the green is allowed?

Richard, my turtle-&-pearls picture took a long time too, but you probably ended up as I did--with more knowledge of your camera and lighting. This is exactly what I want to do with each challenge. I'm spending a huge amount of time coming up with a list of ideas that will challenge our abilities, help us learn, help us grow as photographers. I've tried doing this before all by myself, but it hasn't worked so well. Doing it in a group makes it so much more fun, and it also provides badly needed feedback.

The little bit of green is fine. Your photo is still white-on-white.

Definatly is a challenge. I have not been doing photography that long but really am getting into it now. Looking forward to the next challenge, simply thinking about how to get whiteonwhite was not easy, so going to rack my brains once I know what the next one is...

For the next one, you'll have to "unrack" your brains. :twisted:
