Very elegant, Barbara...

At first glance, I thought those might be your lip prints
on your lovely glass

But then, I cleaned my glasses!

I'll have you know I polished the dickens out of that glass before photographing it. It was a day for reflection. :roll:

Do I detect someone using Photoshop CS's new Type on a Path option?

Looks good...

Happy holidays to you and your family too...

It didn't work any differently from how it worked in version 7, so therefore...

...since I'm not using any of the new parts in CS, I'm perfectly within my rights.

Thank you, Sergio. I think most of the elegance is really coming from the glass itself. It's part of a beautiful set that includes a decanter. Too bad none of us in my family drinks much wine.

You're right that I blurred the background, but you're only partly right about it being a second image of the glass. The photo was taken of the glass with a curtain of aluminum foil behind it, so the colors you see in the background are reflections of the glass in the foil. I draped the foil somewhat like cloth, and this is what gave the radiating effect to the background colors. I selected the background by using Quick Mask to cover the glass, but I've got to say that there's absolutely nothing "quick" about Quick Mask. It was one very tedious job.

Now that's a terrific technique; I hope it is not patented!
