  #180 Sparkle
Entry 1 of 25
   
 
Orrefors Kraka "Fishnet" Vase       ©2016 aoc46
Panasonic DMC-LX100       1st place, 136 points
1/100s, f2.8, ISO 400, 24mm, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Cloning to remove imperfections and distractions, including some superfluous "star" lines contributed by the camera's star filter. Slight softening of background. Crop, resize, sharpen.       Extra Info: Tiny bubbles in the glass produce a sparkling net pattern, especially in bright light. A few stars from the camera's built-in filter help reinforce the point.

About 12 inches high; designed 1944 by Sven Palmquist.

    Congratulations on 1st place. I'm just seeing this now as I've been away. What a lovely vase - perfect for this challenge, especially with the star bursts.

    Nice find for the challenge. How many starbursts did you have to remove? Did you try a centered to view as well? Congrats on your win!!!

    Expertly taken with judicious use of the star effect. You have presented this lovely vase to the best possible advantage, and met the theme beautifully.

    like the simplicity and style of the shot. Would have preferred no star bursts, it think it is strong enough without: in top 5.

    Very nice! The only image I like with the fake starbursts, all others were overdone. Might very well make my top pick.

    Simple, and the star effect is not over done. In my TT.

    The sheer simplicity of this shot puts it in my TT. My only comment would have been to show less background but a great sharp image and fits the challenge. Well done

    I love the colours and detail here and your composition is good. Although I am not really a fan of starburst filters, this was used selectively and well done.
