    Did you photoshop the edges of the photo ?

    Nice shot, the short depth of field works well. What did you use for lighting?

      The lighting is actually my least favorite aspect of this shot.

      I took the photo in my dining room, where I have an overhead incandescent chandelier on a dimmer switch. The camera was mounted on a tripod, and this is a two second exposure.

      The shadow from the glass is from two candles just to the left of the lens of the camera. I didn’t notice these shadows when I was shooting, so this shot is a great learning experience. Check the shadows… always check the shadows!

    Very cool. The red background gives it a classy look. Reminds me of some sort of liquor advertisement. Conveniently enough I have a clementine sitting right next to me.
