Entry 15 of 29
just a sip to cap off the day       ©2016 elliott
Canon EOS M       15th place, 58 points
6s, ?, ISO 200, ?, Normal Program, Center Weighted Average, no flash
Post-Processing: adj. contrast, crop, clone out flare and specks, resize.       Extra Info: late afternoon sun had the room golden for a few minutes but faded quickly. by the time i got everything dialed in, light changed but still not bad. and yes Patron... nice way to end rough day and ease into the evening. (ok, a few sips)

    Just to answer your comment here, Voting may be fickle but the winning entry picked up 10 first place votes so hard to argue with that (I voted the winning entry 10th and he voted me no. 1 so there you go.) The auto was shot at my place but it isn't mine, of course. The lighting was largely the result of my PP work to boost the contrast without really going too far. I learned a lot playing with that image.

    thanks ysal and others who commented. you can see my comments below. i'll have to remember to look at my entry on different monitors before voting starts next time.

    Oh well, this was in my top 5

    I really like the way you have picked out the P with the light. In my favourites.

    guess i'll have to recalibrate monitor. obviously mine is brighter. i'm looking at this now at work and only see two tiny bits of the cloth where as at home i see a lot more of the folds. i'll brighten one up for out takes.
ps... if i go to log out while this photo is up, the contrast changes while logout box is there and you can see much more.

    I like the composition, but I find the photo too dark. It's too bad you lost the sun.

Feb 13, 2016
    Not sure why you chose such a dark image unless to highlight the illuminated P, but I don't think the idea really works.

Feb 13, 2016
    Time is always a problem where lighting is concerned, but nicely composed despite the darkness

    on theme with a "P" in the picture

had to darken the room lights to see the glass on its side.
i feel the glass was surplus as the P on the cork is more interesting

    Rich elements but the composition and lighting doesn't work as well as I feel it should.

    perplexed about this one

    anthony and ysal, thanks for the comments. anthony, interesting you mention the reflections in the glass. i'm still trying to figure that out. only lights on were an acer monitor pilot light and maybe one of those vintage replica crazy filament lightbulbs somewhere above view and light from a window to the right. reflections might show ceiling and bookcase.

    Nicely captured, nice and low key and certainly only on theme! The reflection in the glass is a little distracting as I keep trying to figure out what it is... in my favourites..

    Love the way both P's stand out. Very effective. One of my top picks.

Feb 11, 2016
    sorry, this may seem a bit dark to some but i like the 'feel'.

also, forgot to mention slight sharpening. i don't often use that feature as there seem to be trade offs if not used very carefully
