The second in a set of rather experimental images dubbed The wine glass series.
29th March 2009.
This is a merging of two of my own images with some quick editing in Photoshop CS3. The first image is the skyline of Surfers Paradise (as captured from Greenmount). The second image is a wine glass filled with water and droplets of water sprayed on the outside of the glass (rotated 90 degrees CCW) captured at slow-shutter speed. The wine glass was sitting in front of my computer screen, which was projecting one of my own blue sky images on the fullscreen. The two images have been merged through layering, with Contrast/Brightness/Shadow adjustments, Colour Removal from the city skyline image, Spotlight effects, and Image Transformation (Warp) – all in Photoshop CS3. I hope that you like the end result.
