Golden autumn tree leaves outside the window provides the back-drop for these antique bottles. Located in an old barn found while driving along the backroad on the coast of Maine. The local family uses the barn to sell apples and pumpkins from the fall harvest.

A great choice to resubmit Jeff - this image is really wonderful.
I was thinking of you today as I viewed a flyover by an F1-11 and then a Roulette display.....all I ended up with was blue sky (minus any jets or planes) and bits of wings and cut off areas.
Gosh - I don't know how you do it so well Jeff, I tried to anticipate their flight paths but they move so fast so I am going to stick to buildings.....they stay still at least...LOL!!

DiAnna F. Paulk January 01, 2007

Jeff, I recognized a lot of your images from the Cafe. I really enjoyed looking through your beautiful gallery here. I am particularly drawn to this image. I think it's close to a perfect still life! The only thing I can see to improve it would be to run a little unsharp mask on it -- maybe on a separate layer and then erase or mask everything but the blue bottles -- leave them very sharp and the background soft. Unfortunately, I'm not a judge, so my advice could be totally off! And I do acknowledge that it was totally unsolicited, so please forgive me if I overstepped my boundaries.

Thanks for commenting on my bubbly orange today! #3769275
