[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A rather belated contribution to the "liquid" theme. Glass is a liquid that flows extremely slowly. The panes in shop windows that have been standing upright for more than a hundred years are twice as thick at the bottom than at the top because the glass slowly flowed downwards. Glass breaks with a conchoidal fracture, seen here as a near circular crack and with the piece so broken out lying next to it. It has no crystal structure as it was cooled down rapidly during the manufacturing process. It can be blown into many different shapes. Crystal glass, on the other hand, is cooled down slowly and therefore the atoms are allowed to form an atomic structure and it is cut, rather than blown, into the desired shape. Cut glass is thus a proper solid and is much more expensive than ordinary amorphous glass.

Hi Neels
This is an original and creative composition with an ideal point of view, nice colors and interesting shadows.

TFS & regards

Hi Neels, good work here, an interesting set-up that works well


I like your work, your approach, clever idea.
Interesting reading of the image, a good use of light, shadows and colors.
As I like to say, it is a successful adaptation of several forms to a function.

Hi Neels, I know you posted this for the liquid theme but the part I like best is the light and shadows on the cloth above the broken glass. Fiona

Well well well.. my idea but how it is broken in that shape, beautiful that I always dream to shoot.
