f3.3, 1/2 sec, 60mm macro lens. shot indoors using available window light. I selected shallow depth of field so that only the text of 'absinthe' on the label would be sharp. it is contrasted by the signature green color of the liquid itself and the blur of the of the label. I tried to select an unusual angle of the bottle in the frame and used the very selective focus to present the absinthe in a dynamic and mysterious way - to match the drink itself.

Absinthe, the drink of post-impressionists. I enjoyed viewing your gallery, especially the impressive florals. #299765
