I love your still life images Rakesh. They always have a 'twist' of some sort for extra interest. YOu have put such a lot of thought and preparation into this one, and it shows. It screams out professionalism and quality and would make a superb framed picture for many a dining room or hotel wall. #2144114

Beautiful still life! The lighting, tones and composition are perfect, Rakesh! #3022255

To discuss, first log in or sign up (buttons are at top center of page).


This still life was made in the day light, sun light was diffused by tracing paper, and reflection of the same can be seen in bottle and glass. Back ground was a painted paper sheet.Painting texture was added at the time of printing by sandwitch of two negatives[ pre PS era].
Hope you will like this!
