    Belated thanks to all due to my absence. Now I will have to try some high speed photos using my shotgun on glass to see if I can keep Jade & FC happy LOL. I do appreciate with your various comments and they will help me improve the next take for sure.

    This time voting is almost a headache with so many beautiful entries, but finally yours is in my TT, because I like a lot the colours and the clarity/sharpness in the pic... just in my 10 place but only due to the strong competence, voting apart this is a beautiful image for sure. Well done!! :-)

    Nice shot, like the composition etc, in my top picks.

    Nice composition with the polished stones and the dandelions the crowning feature of the bottle arrangement.

Had you considered leaving out the bottle to the left.
I have a feeling it doesn't add to the shot and with it's removal you would have had a more dramatic photo.
Just a thought.

    I am not sure the bits come together here. Each is attractive on its own but to my eye they clash rather than complement.

    if the white base on which the bottles stand is a clue to the photographer and his shotgun you could have blown them awy in time. love the shapes on the decanters especially the Bristol Blue one.
the 'Ships decanter' didnt start as name implies on ships . they were originally for use with deep red wine such as burgandy to allow the wine to breathe with the large top surface mixing with the air. just taking the cork out is a waste of time. they became known as ships decanters due to the obvious large base prevents loss of wine in a heavy sea.

    Jade: How can you say that after I went to the trouble of including a blue bottle just for you LOL. Thanks for the comment - it was meant to be just the decanters but then I added the rocks and flowers. I can see what you mean but hope that others don;t share your point of view. Thanks for commenting.

    I'd use the shotgun on this grouping! Really, I would prefer to see the blue and clear bottles gone and this one shot from surface level. The composition and colour are fine, but I just don't like the bottles.
