Susan Fox level-classic 5/3/2007 9:00:49 AM

Janine Russell level-classic 5/3/2007 6:49:14 PM

Chris, excellent colors, detail, clarity, lighting, DOF, exposure and composition. #4244490

Christopher Budny level-classic 5/4/2007 3:43:30 AM

Thank you so much, everyone! This is another bit of glass from my favorite glassblower, Michael Schunke; he does really beautiful work! #4245680

Autum Rhoades level-classic 5/4/2007 4:28:49 AM

Christopher, he does fantastic work - but you photograph it in a fantastic way too! You could help promote his business! Awesome job! #4245979

Christopher Budny level-classic 5/4/2007 4:48:01 AM

Thanks, Autum!
I'll probably see him again this summer at his studio; perhaps I'll pull up all my various images of his glass! (I managed a Finalist a year ago, with a yellow sphere he made.)
Sadly, he already has a fantastic studio photographer who does all his website images now. #4246070

Ken Smith level-classic 5/4/2007 8:39:02 PM

Beautiful composition, Christopher. Very vivid and perfect colors! #4248920

Christopher Budny level-classic 5/5/2007 5:01:45 AM

Thank you, Ken! It just dawned on me that I could have put this in the Theme, instead; the gold flecks in the twisted glass ball are actually the result of gold leaf being applied to the hot glass. Oh well! #4249542

Katarina Mansson 5/6/2007 12:20:15 AM

Lovely colors, lighting, composition and DOF! (I guess these glasses go well with your shaker selection and look forward to trying them all in the next C&C thread :-) #4252195

Christopher Budny level-classic 5/6/2007 8:12:55 PM

Thanks, Katarina! Yes, I am set to host the C&C Happy Hour, any time the group wants to visit! 21 shakers, and at least that many martini glasses! (Though just 2 of the glasses are hand-made beauties, as shown here.) #4254822

Tom Andersen level-classic 5/7/2007 8:53:51 AM

The colors in this image are fabulous, Christopher! Wonderful work! #4257023

Christopher Budny level-classic 5/8/2007 6:11:24 AM

Thank you so much, Tom! I was surprised how the background turned out---it was actually black (the back wall of a china cabinet) but the ambient light in the room, and the wall of daylight from patio doors behind me, at the long exposure, rendered this very mellow color instead. #4259880

Colleen Farrell level-classic 6/26/2007 4:28:39 PM

Considering all the cocktails we imbibed in the C&C thread, this image is particularly apropos! Big congratulations on a beautiful macro, Christopher! #4441446

congrats. I really like how you chose such a creative dof in this image

Christopher Budny level-classic 7/8/2007 1:21:06 PM

Thanks, Justin! (Perhaps the DOF was inspired by a few drinks in said glasses ;) #4485524

Jean B. Hall level-classic 7/5/2008 5:44:51 PM
