Refraction revisted 30/366

ODT: 3/19/2012: Do over again.


In Round 17 of Get Pushed I have been paired with the wonderful JTsMama.


In her challenge to me she said:

" I would like to see you either re-create or re-do one of your shots to look for one more way to spice it up or change it if you felt something you might have done a little differently. ............ I like that you went back to places (or perhaps captured them in different ways at one time.) and did something a little different. If you so choose you might also just re-edit a shot you feel quite satisfied with to get a new look."


JTsMama gave me suggestions from my stream to work on, both from location shots and of still lifes, including some shots I had taken of glasses.


So I chose to try and improve some refraction shots I attempted last year. See below for the original shot.


For this challenge I used the same decanter but filled it with water to extend the refraction, and, I think, did a better job of placing the lights for less glare.


Thanks for the challenge.

I will keep practicing this.
