[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Sitting here waiting until I can be out and about again I have been going through my old files and getting around to trying out techniques on images which I have been meaning to do for a long time.

This is an experiment using layers and three different images. I actually shot the reflection of the trees in the cup but the cup and saucer did not come out as sharp as I wanted. I then took another shot of the cup and saucer with the reflection blurred. I needed the third shot to add the bits with the clone tool that were missing from the other two shots. The cup and saucer were placed on a black sofa to take the shots.

I know this is far from perfect but for me it is a milestone in Photoshop.

I like this experiment, smart idea.
Very good use of space, the black background is good and highlights the reflection.
Beautiful contrasts and harmony of colors.
Pretty minimalist work.

original le reflet dans une tasse; bien vu pour les couleurs

Really an excellent and intelligent concept! The fact that you put a lot of great efforts on this picture adds more to it. The branches are really sharp and the DOF given to the cup is really good!

Well done, Joy!
