    Deuce,

    Great workon the most recent pics! The image with the dark background is the one I like the best. The candles in the wine glass was a great idea. Nicely done!

    Watti,

    I don't know if I've said anything about your wine shots or not, but good stuff there. I like how the wine actually shows a sort of texture with the top of that two-buck-Chuck almost foaming. And the color is really cool, especially on that countertop. Moving the light around to angle in from the front right of the glass might reduce that big flare (if it was unintentional) and keep the dust on the glass from showing. For stock-image shots like this, the glass has to be absolutely dust-free, which is harder to do than you'd think. The composition of the first one with the suggestion of the cork and bottle opener all fuzzy in the background is good, but a slight crop to straighten that horizontal line of the backsplash out would make it great. The second one's comp could move the glass a tad more to the right vertical "third" line to make it more pleasing to the eye.

    Otto,

    The "glass bots" are really cool. The rainbow effect you got on the shot of the cut bottoms is mesmerizing. I like the contrast of the "second look at the little jar" pic. The wine bottle pic would look straight out of a magazine if the words weren't just a little soft on the focus. Maybe f/8 and a slightly longer exposure. The close-up of the aztec-looking light reflector is WAY cool. That could be tweaked in so many ways to do so many different things artistically (playing with color hues and saturations, for instance), but it's a great shot out of the box too.

    Imamonsta,

    I like the sign images. That was an idea for this theme I was going to explore a bit had I had the time. Glad someone got to it.

    PITA,

    I like the koolaid shot a lot! Great idea!

    \_==o IxxI,

    Marblz. You haz dem. Great idea to light them with the minimag. I really need to go see if I can duplicate those images.

    PuckHead27,

    Love the koi glass! First, compliments to your folks for the great idea. Second, the suggestion of an upside-down outside world from inside through the little clear "bubbles" is pretty cool!

    I think I've managed to hit everyone who's gotten new stuff up since my last round of props.

    Two more hours, folks, and this thread will be unstickied and allowed to fall into obscurity. I'll archive what's here at noon for future posterior. Posts are still welcome, of course, if you find stuff to take pictures of that fall under this theme. After all, no sense not looking for interesting things to take pictures of.

    Thanks to everyone who participated here! I enjoyed this a lot and I'm really looking forward to the next one!

    I fell behind on the comments and have a lot of backtracking to do, but good job everyone! Seriously, there's something to like in every single contributor's posts. And though I wanted to get a few more pictures up, I'm happy with my shots, too, and thanks to everyone for the comments. Looking forward to part two.

    Really cool and inspiring stuff, peeps. Put several into my rotating desktop image bank. Guess I'll also say thanks to those of you who gave feedback and encouragement.

    I think challenge #2 will be "beef".
