Great shot. I wish the wine glasses didn't have the writing on them, but that's the glassmaker's fault, not the photographer's.

So clean and sparkly!

Upon visiting your site today, I said "wow" out loud at the site of this photo. It's really just wonderful.

I'm a little surprised how neither you or anyone else has addressed how you were able to photograph glasses standing on air, but, for me, I think you used some of that Harry Potter magic. Well done, David, perfect angle.

Eye popping great photo.

Interesting.. almost a bit disturbing to the eye

comment by Jennifer at 07:43 AM (GMT) on 6 November, 2007

Excellent! Love the warm glow - is that PS or was it actually lit like that?

Amy I correct in assuming you rotated this image and that they're sitting cup-side down on a dark mat of some sort? No matter, it's beautiful, I especially love the diffracted light through the bases of the glasses.

comment by Craig at 11:05 AM (GMT) on 6 November, 2007

I'd say they are flipped, thats why it makes your eyes bounce around......csj

Thanks all. And yes, this was rotated ;-)

Perfect image and impressing depht. Cool pattern in warm colours. Upside down..... good idea.

comment by Martin duckitt at 08:33 PM (GMT) on 7 November, 2007

wow well done. How come is it that the glasses looks like it floats

comment by Josef Renklint at 03:36 PM (GMT) on 8 November, 2007

Gorgeous. Love the warm tones.

comment by claude at 09:30 PM (GMT) on 8 November, 2007

Wow! Simply beautiful. I like the warm tones a lot!

First very nice shots. I love your work and come here kind of daily to get the inspiration. In the last couple of photos how did you avoid getting your own reflection in them.
