Reflections and sunrise/sunset are popular themes, and why not, it is both fascination and beautiful at the same time. Just take a look at a simple thing as a glass of wine. It is possible to see several aeroplane windows inside a glass, a small twist of the glass and you see different parts of the surrounding area, strange! Well, perhaps not, there are probably many mathematicians and physicists that have a scientific explanation. I was quite tired after a long journey from Brasil when these thoughts came up in my mind so i was probably not receptive for an explanation at that moment:)

Det kan väl aldrig vara så att ju mer man dricker desto fler reflexer ser man? Snygg bild, definitivt ovanlig för att vara på TE, men fina siluetter mot en fin blå/beige bakgrund. Är det din fru, eller vågade du ta en såpass närgången bild på en främmande person? :-)

I like this attractive composition very much. I can recognize a KLM aircraft in the background and the repetition in the glass.
The dark silhouette in combination the shining glass gives a marvelous composition.

Can't tell whether this was a set-up, or a grab-shot, but either way it works a treat. Graphic and punchy and clever. Could be artwork for an advertisement (which isn't supposed to be rude!) I'd just like to see a hint of red in the wine. Then I'd have to pop downstairs and uncork a bottle.

I like this very much, the hand, wine and face contrasting nicely with the rest of the image. Good cropping.
macjake (63232) 2014-08-24 16:49
so was this a planned shot? or do you not even know the person drinking the wine?
no matter what the case is, its pretty darn cool and refreshing to see something so out of the norm for TE.
very unique, creative and spontaneous.

This is really well seen. Wonderful silhouette of the wine drinking man against the unmistakable colours of a KLM aircraft. Thanks for sharing!

It is so impressive, the black silhouettes stand out of the white/blue background and the reflections in the glass are operfect.

Fantastic shot! A great idea to show the woman in silhouette with the blurred colorful background we can see through the glass! Original and perfectly captured! Wonderful job!
