A broken hope


I was walking around the golf course tonight when I stumbled upon this shattered glass. I have no idea what it was, didn't look like a bottle. But the first thing I thought was "Hm, how am I going to light this properly?" Since I had my SB-600 and lightstand with me, I just threw on a 1/1 CTB gel and started shooting. This was my favorite shot of the broken glass. Since I was using UniWB, the generated JPG was a little pinkish but the NEF had just that right touch of blue.
