Crystal - クリスタル

Nelson, New Zealand

Nikon D200
AF Micro-Nikkor 60mm F2.8
F32, 28s, ISO-100 - Slow sync with built in flash

Set white balance to "Tungsten (temp=2850)" and some colour adjustment as well as sharpening were applied.

"A crystal tumbler with a shot of Scotch Whisky."


  1. An interesting and pretty combination of colors molded together. The mood of this seems to be refreshing, probably from the cool blue reflections on the glass. At the same time, there is also a pleasant warmth from the amber color of the scotch in the glass. The image has a pleasing visual effect as does jewelery.

  2. I agree with Gavin, there is a pleasant combination of warm and cool. I just love brown and blue together, so it suits me very well.

  3. A fine conception of what to shoot. A fine job of pulling it off too! I really like the marvelous color.

  4. Thanks, everyone.

    My intention here is the contrast of coolness and warm colour of scotch as well as shine on the crystal surface to show some reflection of cool flash light.
    I'm really glad that this was pointed out by audience in exactly what I intended. Thank you very much for that! I really appreciated expressing the interpretation of yours.

    Cheers, everyone!

  5. Following the previous 2 shots you truly deserved the content of this glass! Good that you took time to photograph it as well :). Play of light is beautiful!
