  #187 Smell, Scent, Aroma
Entry 9 of 21
   
 
An impudent little claret with an arrogant “nose”       ©2017 RobertLavker
Panasonic DMC-GX7       9th place, 71 points
1/125s, f6.3, ISO 125, 186mm, Manual, Pattern, flash
 
Post-Processing: levels adjusted; shadows deceased, highlights decreased, contrast increased; curves adjusted; filter – unsharp mask. Ash particles were cloned out of the smoke images. Smoke was colorized via Image – Adjustments – Hue and Saturation. Wine and smoke images were blended in Photoshop       Extra Info: I realize that one rarely finds a wine with an aroma, or nose as depicted in this image (thankfully); however, IMHO there is something Daliesque (read surreal or wicked) about the picture, which strikes my fancy.

    Nice work photographically, but for me, the red 'smoke' makes me wonder what on earth could be in the glass to produce such a result and so distracts from any thought of smell.

    Nice colors, nice 'wisps', but I'd have preferred not having everything so centered.

    Nice idea! The aroma looks a bit too heavy and prominent. Of course the aroma would not really emanate only from the center of the wine surface as pictured. It took me a while to find the nose, and I laughed when I saw it. Great imagination!!! There are several little specs that distract from the photo. All in all, you still get my vote!

    more like a witch's brew. fascinated with the images i see in the smoke. hate to admit that that fascination was partly responsible for my smoking habit years ago. little put off by central point where the smoke comes from almost like it is coming from 'poison pellet' in the glass. imo, a more diffused vapor coming from the glass would work better for me. stilll a neat composition.

    This looks a bit too artificial, or maybe that's the look you were going for. What am I smelling? Technically, well done.

    technically a very good shot . will look forward to seeing the details on how it was done

    Obviously constructed image has the advantage of being attractive, but looses the impact of smell due to its fakeness in my opinion.

    A lot of impact from the red and black. If that claret packs a punch to match, it must be something! A little nitpick - there are a lot of tiny white spots that could be spot healed. In my faves.
