Panoramic glass

What do you do when the weather is bad, you have some time to spent and the hotel is a boring place. Well I took my camera, walked every were through the building on the hunt for nice photographic items.

Found these glasses hanging over the cabinet in the large dining room of my hotel in Sandefjord. Took several shots without flash with different camera settings. Well from those several (about fifteen) pictures of the glasses I chose this one, curious at your critiques.

No flash used, f/4.5 and 1/15 sec.

N.B. It's better for your bank account to leave these wine glasses empty, spirituals in Norway are extremely expensive (compared with other parts in the world). A nice glass of Chardonnay will cost you about 90 Kronen, about 11,- Euros or 16,- USD!

Seeing this,I wish you where bored like hell more,because it certainly gives you good ideas Hans.
Keen work in the nice dark atmosphere of the pub,you took good advance of the out side light on the glasses.
What are you complaining about a ""lousy"" 11 eu,your boss is paying ;-]]


Hi Hans,
Well I think you've done a fantastic job.

Expected focus would be upfront, but the focus being more at the center, the eye is compel to jump into it. Good contrast, and warm colors. Very interesting composition.

Hope the weather got better..))) Cheers.

Hello Hans,
Excellent image.great sharpness.great composition and fantastic colors and details.
Above all excellent idea.

Bonjour Hans.
Superbe effet de vue au travers de ces verts de bistrot.
Les couleurs sont aussi parfaite.
Bonne journée.

hi hans

Hi Hans,

Superb shot coupled with great innovation!
I love the colors and the natural effects in the picture. The details are great with crisp sharpness. The POV is the best part of teh capture.
Wonderful composition!

Have a nice Sunday.

thanks and regards,

Hi Hans, A fine and classy close-up of these glasses. It is so crystal clear and sharp. Well seen and presented. The golden yellow colour is attractive. TFS. Murray.

Hello, Hans -
Great idea, very creative! Great effect from the multiple layers of shaped glass. Good choice not to use flash for this. Interesting DOF somewhere in the middle of the stack of glasses. Great stuff!

Hallo Hans,

Heel mooi gezien! Waar verveling sl niet toe kan leiden.
Mooie weergave, prima scherpte en goed gebruik gemaakt van het licht. Goed idee, en hou de glazen maar op kop dat is zeker goed voor de knip!
Groetjes, Marga

Bonjour Hans,

Ici il fait trop chaud et en vacances je ne peux sortir car la température atteint les 30° facile donc ménageons nous si l'on veut tenir le coup!!!
Là, ton cliché est splendide, il fallait y penser prendre une vue à travers un alignement de verres bien rangés!!!

Hallo Hans.
Een zeer opvallende en creatieve manier van het gebruik van glaswerk. Resultaat een mooie opname die spectaculair is. Iets te druk maar goed geslaagd.
Groet Frans

Fantastic Hans. I stared at the thumbnail for a while ... trying to figure out was this was, but couldn't do it until I opened it up!!
Very creative and interesting graphical image .. love the warm colors and all the sparkles of light. Great job Hans

yes i have a friends daughter taking nursing studies there and she says it is so expensive even more costly than vancouver! very creative approach with this, good eye,

What a great idea! I like the perspective and the view angle that you chose.This is very well composed.I feel like being in a kind of a magical glass castle.The colors are beautiful and your notes very interesting.There must not be a lot of alcoholics in Norway with such expensive prices for the spitits.TFS

Hi Hans,
Woah, lucky I'm not having Friday night drinks right now or I think I would have passed out! Nice semi-abstract image, the effect is quite psychedelic looking. Good exposure and reflections from the lights - although at that price, they can stay there :).

Hi Hans,
I have been there, in a hotel when the weather is just horrible, looking for something to shoot. However, I was not able to get a capture like this. I love this shot. The repetition of the wine glasses, the lines and the view through the glasses are wonderful. This is a very creative and artistic shot. Excellent work Hans.

Hi Hans,
Really intriguing photo from the thumbnail!
The large view confirm your skills!
Excellent rendering of the light on these rows of glasses. Very graphical, modern and sharp image.
Bad weather and boring place can reserve good opportunity to see differently!
My compliments!

This is a most unusual posting for you and really a brilliant idea!
Glass is very difficult to shoot because the auto focus won't work
I like the way you have set your focal point midway, so the glasses in front and at the back are out of focus!
Well done all around
