Nice close-up. Unfortunately a bit too much light reflected from the tops of some beans, but cool shot

Mick,

thanks for your comments.
Yes, you are absolutely right with the light.
I don' t know, how I could avoid such effects.
The picture was shot in my living room with an uplight.
I made a little bit PP with GIMP G'MIC.

Cheers,

Stefan

Nicely done stefan-

Sometimes changing the direction of the lighting will produce an entirely different effect. 'Not to worry, try a different lighting set up the next time. The willingness to experiment is a large portion of the learning process.

Just an experiment, huh? I think none of my efforts ever move off that position, ... all experiments.

There are so many interesting things like this subject to shoot. They key is to stop to find them. Nice work on the beans.

Doesn't a CPL filter reduce reflection from that beans? Literally what are those beans? Colombia Supremo, kopi luwak ? I am very interested in coffee like you even i produce my own coffees from green beans and i have some coffee trees..

Actually, I think the lighting is just fine. I like it.
