I really like the way the lines on the glass cut across the lines on the blinds. A really simple but effective photograph. Well done Karen

An awesome us of directional line. Very effective in black & white. A simple concept, but discovering it must have been a WOW moment!

Thank you everyone for the comments!!! Leslie, It is actually a champagne glass so the glass part (the part that you fill with liquid) is quite long, I just held it with my hand.
