  #39 Candy
Entry 9 of 30
   
 
For those who've been nice       ©2007 Maike13
Panasonic DMC-LX1       9th place, 137 points
1/1s, f4.9, ISO 80, 112mm, Aperture Priority, Pattern, flash
 
Post-Processing: Crop; Noise Reduction; Shadow & Highlights on centre tin to reduce highlights; increased overall Brightness and Contrast a bit; cloned out a couple of distracting Xmas tree light reflections in foreground; downsized; sharpened.       Extra Info: Since 'tis the season, and likely the last contest judged before Xmas, I thought I'd shoot this one on the glass coffee table in front of our Xmas tree. These British candies have become quite popular here in the US, and you can find them in most grocery stores.

    Thanks for the kind comments everyone. I've often thought an Altoid tin would be an interesing photo subject but it took this challenge to nudge me into actually taking some shots. That's what I love about these challenges.

    Nice shot, colors, lighting, details, good idea with the reflection, although taken horizonally, it is still pleasing, in my tt.

    I am a Altoids lover. I like the way you put this together a lot. The reflection is an added bonus. Very well done.

    Excellent Capture! Love the reflection and b/g that gives it just the right touch of atmosphere and not be overpowering. IN my TT~! Good Luck!

    A sharp and colorful image, love the reflections, and the blurred background adds a festive touch. Very well executed. TT.
