February 24th - On the Rocks

On the Rocks
I've had a shot like this in mind for quite a long time, maybe over a year but never had the "ice" to do it with. Then at class this morning, I noticed a bucket full of tempered glass fragments from a broken display case. They said I could take all I wanted as it was going to be thrown away anyway, so I grabbed some and here's today's treat. I wish I had a cherry to put on top!

>>>Edit - Here's the setup I used for this shot. Thanks for the interest!

  3. I have been waiting a while for one like this. Something about mirrors in your art that gives them a money shot look. Good snag... what school was that and why were you there?

  10. Love the reflection - the mirrored surface - and the way the blue shows through in the reflection. A beautiful shot.
