I did not mean to take this shot in the very beginning.

I wanted to freeze a cherry in a ice cube but, since I was out of cubic stamps, I thought I could have used a small squared thumbler glass.

When I started to fill the glass with water I changed my mind !

Two version, both taken in macro mode inf front of a window andwith ainner light pointing upwards.

Version 1 :

Version2 :

P.S. :

- dominant color correction ( I left some cyan tones in the second one cause I liked it )

- manual level correction

- automatic contrast

- rotation, crop

- Version 2 : noise despeckle,unsharp mask tool (since shot has been taken with no tripod and some blur have occurred :-( )

I like them a lot. It would be interesting to see how it looked with the water half way up the cherry.

I like the first photo better. In my opinion(humble as it is), the simplicity of the shot makes a stronger statement. I also noticed, even without my glasses, that the second version is fuzzy around the stem, and the defination on the glass not as great( or is that DOF that I'm not considering).

I also have a question, and a request.

The question is; are the cherries really big in Italy, or are the tumblers really small?

The request is to try freezing a cherry in suspensionand see how the crystaline effect of ice on the cherry, and cherry in ice translates in photographic form. If you have the time, that is.:?

Number one has what it takes, Sergio. It's a beautiful picture because of it's high contrast and simplicity.

This is great! For once, I agree with the majority - I really like shot #1. I'm glad you didn't wait for the ice - we would have missed out on this great shot!

Like others I've been trying to figure out the imponderable, is the cherry big or the glass small?

Perhaps, it's like Einstein's theory of relativity maybe it depends on where you're standing.

Crystal clear first shot.
