Geometry

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Geometry
Geometry
EF100mm, f/8, .8 Second, -1/3ev, RAW, ISO100, tripod, light tent.
A discussion on square crops got me into a geometric frame of mind, recalling the forms of architecture
built around a shared measurement. This composition came out of that; loosely, a circle of radius X, set in a square
field 3X by 3X, above a rectangle of 1X by 3X. It is actually the bowl of a martini glass (viewed into the bowl)
on the blue drape of the tent, the drape's edge ending on the tabletop where the spotlights cast shadows and light.

    Simplicity and form . . .
the shadows that are cast adding the criss-cross pattern added another dimension to this. This is such a well thought out composition!

And the circle gets the sqaure!
It's perfectly balanced and has very pleasing colors.

Love the composition, colors, geometrical forms, lines and shapes! One probably need that Martini after (or before?) trying to follow the theoretical information though...:-)

It's a winner on all accounts, Chris! The colors are just great, and the comp, although appearing simple and straight forward, is in actuality quite complex and sophisticated. Great work!

My head is spinning with all that math Chris - LOL! I love the colors, light, lines and overall design. Very impressive blending of all those elements.

Thank you, folks! Another one catching me by surprise; it was a fun exercise in playing with dimensions and units of measure, but I didn't think it would catch the judges' eyes!
