This is something that I worked on in my spare time. I always thought about the image of a city into a glass of water to show how things are much larger than they appear to be. Let me know what you think. And the original image that I started with was an empty glass in a tan room.

I really like your image and the blue that you used in it. It looks nice on our newly refurbished blue blog. My only complaint is that the building on the left is so dark that it almost feels like a frame for the rest of the buildings and is a bit distracting. Otherwise it is a pretty interesting shot with some good Photoshop work. Good job!

I really like this. I like how the blue background interacts with the blue light on the buildings. good job on the reflection too. it's the attention to detail that takes things from being ok to fantastic...this is fantastic...

I really like this picture. You really had a good idea my only complaint is taht on the left and right sides of the glass the city seems a little dark. But you could have shaded that in to show the curve of the glass. Overall a really good picture

Awesome job. It's a very original shot, never would have thought to do something like this myself. i like the "aura" effect around the glass. makes it stand out more. Great job.

Awesome job. Its a very original idea, never would have thought of this myself. Great use in photoshop to mask that in. I like the "aura" effect that surrounds the glass. Helps it to stand out more. Nice selection of blues as well. Great job!

I agree I think the color chioce really works, I think I would have burnt in the bottom and the corners. Good job

Excellent job! You obviously spent a lot of time working on this and it shows. I like how you seemlessly blended the city into the glass, and also made a lighter reflection of it on the bottom of the picture. The blended shades of blue are very appealing and when combined with the edges of the glass, give off a nice contrast.

Wow. That is incredible. You did an AWESOME job with this photomanipulation. The colors match the night scene inside the cup perfectly. My only criticism is the glow on the corners. I still love this picture!

This picture is pretty much amazing. It really caught my eye when i was scrolling down the page. my favorite part would have to be admist all the blue there are the lights in downtown. i have no clue how you did it... but it's awesome.

I really like this picture. The lighting and the colors are perfect. The only thing I would change is the vignette, but everything else is amazing.

i really love this, but i think it would look better if you didn't lighten the edges of the photo because it makes it look a little overdone. either way, this photo is very creative.

Caitlin HHS said...

This picture definitely caught my attention... your hard work shows. I believe the dark edges just seem like shadows from the glass. i may agree with others about fading the corners but it is an amazing picture.

This photo is so cool. I love how the lighting on the sides of the glass is slightly lighter than the edge of the frame, it really makes the glass stand out. You did a great job getting the image of the city to reflect. Although the sides of the city picture are slightly too dark, it's still a great photo. Good job!
