Shabbat [62/366]

Day 62.


Trying to avoid another snow shot for the 366 today, so here is a shot from dinner. We had a lovely Shabbat dinner with my aunts and cousins tonight. I've now got reasonably good pictures of wine (this) and candles, so all I need is a good vertical shot of Challah and I can make a Shabbat triptych. :-)


Taken Mar 2, 2012 in Somerville, Massachusetts, United States

    Nice one! Reflections on the bottle aren't too obtrusive (and you're not too easy to pick out in them), and the backdrop helps tell the story you're trying to tell and add a bit of color.
  • Ann O'Brien 3y

    great focus and composition. This looks really great
  • Christophe Van Biesen 3y

    great composition ;)
  • Chris 3y

    This is a storytelling picture for sure. The triptych would actually be very cool!
  • Tim Sackton 3y

    Dennis Wilkinson Thanks. I boosted the blacks a bit to minimize the reflections but didn't want to go overboard and lose the brightness of the rest of the scene.
    Ann O'Brien Christophe Van Biesen Thanks.
    Chris Thanks. I'm sure before the end of this 366 project I'll get the final shot to put the triptych shot together.

    Beautifully composed.
    The shot has a very peaceful feeling.
  • Tim Sackton 3y

    flashfix Thanks. :-)

    An interesting and unusual choice of composition. It creates a very voyeuristic feel as we, the viewers, peer from behind the bottle and also long to gaze into the reflections to see what else is there.

    .avina. Thanks for stopping by, Michael. I appreciate your perspective.
