Feb Week 1 - Light


Feb Week 1 - Light

The sparkle of reflected light really brightens our spirits on dark winter days. We turn the shelf light on in the buffet and get lots of pretty colors coming off the glass cruets.

    What a gorgeous collection and I just love the photo. Just a gorgeous still life! The shallow depth really works to focus on that lovely flowered cruet.
    Beautiful photo. I like the way you used the depth of field to focus the attention on the cruets in the front.
    Very pretty love the lighting and differnt lights and darkness of the photo
    Beautiful! I love the effects of the light on the glass.
    This is great! What beautiful bottles and the colors are so rich and majestic looking! You captured the feeling of oldness in the bottles and other pieces. And I love the blurred background but yet you can make out whats there!
    This is a great shot. Love the different colors of the glass, and the richness of the tones. Nice DOF as well. Good one.
    STRIKING PHOTO!
    Tina - great shot! I love the richness of the colors and the light is perfect! Great depth of field - all in all -awesome job!
    Tina, this is a really neat shot! What a wonderful idea to capture the light from within your china cabinet. The rich jewel tones are perfect to reflect that light. You've really got a nice collection. The varying heights of the cruets really make this photo interesting. And do I detect some milkglass/hobnail in the background?
    I love your DOF and how you have the different light effects from the sparkling glass. Wonderful photo.
