STILL LIFE 17 – MY WIFE’S GLASS OF WINE 3 (MONO + COLOUR)

mmm

A final shot of my wife’s glass of wine, this time in black and white with some restored colour; 16 Mar 2014.

As always, mono simplifies the scene.  The bright tips of the fork assume new prominence – a short and slightly sinuous line of bright points –  and the wine’s restored colour resembles an inferno in a glass. 

Nuclear fission?  Well, hardly, I mean its only rosé … but fill a glass, a bigger, balloon-type glass is best,  with Moortgat’s Duvel  or Westmalle’s Tripel (and drinking these delights at anything but room temperature is, of course, unthinkable)  … and you might feel both shaken … and stirred …

Two earlier images in this series, along with more context, are here and here.

D700 with 70-300 Nikkor at 240mm; 800 ISO; Silver Efex Pro 2, starting at the Film Noir 1 preset.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    Looks like a storm’s a-brewing ……… and I’m not surprised: you simply will not leave your wife’s wine alone 🙂

    Love the processing here. I can see it as the cover of a book.

      Haha, luckily I’m not a wine lover, I very rarely drink any, although cold Cinzano has entered my affections recently. A book cover, eh? Well thank you, I’m certainly flattered! I hope you’re fine, M! A

      Yes, it would have been rather different if I’d been drinking it – glugged in a flash! Actually wine is not my thing, tho I enjoy cold Cinzano – and good (= expensive!) quality sauternes.

      The world on a stem, good description. Glad you like it – thank you, Helen! Adrian 🙂
