    Thanks Steve....mrsawyer asked in the forum about the confusion of the challenge so I added some info there regarding my thoughts on how I saw what I and others may have perceived the challenge to be. I think something may have got lost in translation :)

    Congratulations! I thought your photo was exceptionally well done and deserved a top 10 finish. Sorry for what may appear to be my inconsistency. I try to consider a combination of factors, including overall impression, theme, creativity, technical, composition, in voting. But, it's not easy to rank very different photos against one another and I change my mind often during voting. Again, congratulations!

    Hi mrsawyer..not sure what the leaning is.....part illusion,part the lens used ?????? Doesn't really matter if steve sees my comment...just thinking my frustration out loud.

    Leanne, I'm not sure if SteveBee will see your comment here. Perhaps you should also post it in the #157 Opposites forum thread.

As for the photo, The glasses seem to lean toward each other. Is this a skewing of the perspective? Congrats on your top ten!

    Steve..you also said " create an image", so thats what I did. I created an image and then photographed it. I find it contradictory to point out to one person that the idea of the challenge was "seeing" rather than setting up yet for the winner of the challenge you say
"Very creative and playful take on the theme. Excellent technique and composition. High favorite. " yet it is a photo that was also set up.

    Striking use of color. Love the staging. Well done

    I find the intricate glass pattern in conflict with the starkness of the set up.

    Nicely done - though I prefer my red wine somewhat darker. Or is that cranberry juice? (And are the glass stems bent, or is some perspective correction needed?)

    Fits the challenge well, nice composition with a clear sharp image. Just a pity there is a tilt to the left on the smaller glass.

    the dark bit at the bottom spoils the clear glass for me

    Not a fan of staged shots in general for the challenges, but aside from that, an exceptionally well executed shot. The idea of the challenge was to practice "seeing" rather than setting up.

    I would prefer Big Full and Small Empty, but purely for medical reasons. A great picture and spot-on focus
