Oooh! What a great use for Coke
Zero. Much healthier than actually drinking that stuff. Lovely composition.

"embiggen"? Might still that at some point.

I'm not a coke drinker, but I like this cap ... I'll have to buy a bottle & refill with water.

BTW, thank you ... you got me interested in this project. I just have a P&S and suck at taking pics ... but it's the idea that hooked me =)

Robin, how clever of you to have thought of this! Great shot! :)

What a fun creative shot Robin!

Jeanne Damoff said...

Cool shot! I love the way the image on the cap is angled.

Karen of Sillymonkeez said...

Great job with centering the cap in the shot!

Robert said...

Lately I have not liked stratight on shots but I really like this one. I think because of the large aperature washing out the background. The angle of the bottle on the cap offsets the direct camera angle. Does that make sense or am I just throwing around a bunch of photography terms? :)

Robin said...

Makes sense to me :). I went for the very shallow DOF because that with the empty bottle made the cap almost appear to be floating in midair, and I too thought the off-center white bottle added visual interest and kept it from being just a straight-on snapshot of a bottle.

Cris said...

Like your composition... it made me thirsty :-)

Indrani said...

Well taken shot, Robin. The cap does seem to float in air, in fact I kept staring at it to make out how you might have taken the shot.

Dianne said...

very clever and creative

Rebecca said...

Now THAT's the way to think "outside the box." Nice!

photowannabe said...

Clever...great post for project black.

Jenty said...

very clever shot!

Sara said...

Simple and effective...I like it! Especially since you have the coke bottle emblem on an angle like that...very nice.

lynn said...

Very clever, I like it a lot!

Bunny Trails said...

Creative shot. Very nice entry for PB. :D

Robin, I s m i l e d when I saw this image; having it turned just a bit cock-eyed added to its visual appeal, too.

You've proven that it doesn't take a complicated scene to create an appealing image. A delightful choice for PB :).

angie said...

Clever. Very clever. My husband LOVES Coke Zero. I love the stuff your composition is made up of. Water. (I think).

Robin said...

Actually the bottle is empty. What you're seeing is the reflection of the panel behind :).
