These are small glasses in a kitchen shop. I liked the way the light was reflecting in them but they seemed to lack punch in a black and white version. So, I used that image as the basis for developing a more colorful pattern that while less real seemed to have more impact. Yes, cosiderable manipulation in PS.

This is really very cool, Don. I'm having fun just sitting here, looking at the different glasses, looking at the light, looking at the color. So much to see and enjoy.

The sharp contrast with a bit of warmer tones is very nice and I agree I don't think it would translate very well to b&w. Good eye for the making of a fine composition.

I like the tight white border you added, and the reflections that almost seem to make the glasses speciment jars with mysterious contents.

Good evening, Don,
I like it, what I see. The idea is great on you. The colors and reflections are very well expressed. Sometimes the most insignificant things that we can serve as a motive. Thank you for your nice comment on my web page. Good night. Dear greetings Christel
