[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Just come back from a trip to Goa. This is a shot I took on arrival at the Fort Aguada resort. The stunning view from the room lay beyond the door behind this table. The reflection of the foliage in the glass table top caught my eye in this shot but only after cropping and resizing. Very slight increase in contrast and that was it. I am not big on still life type shots but would welcome comments on the technique or effect achieved. Up for learning....be honest... I can take it!

very artistic indeed, Mike!
the reflection on the glass table is almost symmetrical. the dark/black surrounding is just perfect to make the reflection pops up and that little lighting is enough to show the contour of those fruits. i like it!

Hi Mike,
A beautiful composition. It is not easy to manage a good definition with such difference in the luminosity. You got it right ! Simple and efficient compo, very beautiful and original. TFS !
