Red red wine       ©2009 dodrizzt

Post-Processing: Crop, very minor curves adjustment, cloned off two distracting spots, resize       Extra Info: Song written by Neil Diamond, although the most famous version is the one from UB40. Youtube link:


Some days ago, I've heared this song on the radio after a lot of years, remembered me some very nice moments with friends at beach parties and so on, and can't take it away from my mind, so decided to make a pic :-) after some funny testing pouring wine (and -ahem- drinking ;-) I've come to this simple, almost abstract take on the title... hope you enjoy it (I did! :-)

    Congrats on this win dodrizzt. I like the strong graphics. Very unusual way to represent wine.

Aug 28, 2009
    Finally I'm back in office...
I'm happy this one is the winner!
Sei un grande!

Aug 27, 2009
    Proficiat! Well deserved win.

    I was away for a couple of days and couldn't post-voting comment earlier, just wanted to say: CONGRATULATIONS!!!

Aug 25, 2009
    Lo: nice idea to celebrate :-)
Raf: actually the wine was not a Rioja, I've used a Toro wine (province of Zamora) as it's even more "reddish" than Rioja... and a bit cheaper, too (I felt guilty spoiling a nice Rioja for the pic :-)
Mepo: that has an easy remedy... open a bottle... ;-) thanks!!!
Jade: You made me "blush" (is that the word? :-) you're giving me too much credit... thanks for sooo nice comment!!
And many thanks again to all of you for such nice comments... time to forget red and think in blue :-D

Aug 25, 2009
    WooooooW!!!!! can't believe it, my pic won!! Many, many thanks again to all of you for such nice comments & votes, I'm absolutely happy!!
Now, time to think of a theme... I hope I'll find something as interesting as the last challenges for all of you to enjoy :-)

    Congratulations on your win; it was well deserved & I'm happy to have picked it as #1. And I'm thirsty again :-)

Aug 25, 2009

    In what could have been a close competition you've obliterated the field. A No. 1 finish among a long list of 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishes. Finishing in the top 3 last six Challenges really establishes your efforts as the standard to beat. Congratulations!

Aug 24, 2009
    Congratulations on first place, well deserved.

Aug 24, 2009
    Congratulations. This is an excellent image. One of the rare times my #1 pick actually came in as #1. :-)

Aug 24, 2009
Cheers :-)

Aug 24, 2009

    - Una: You made my day :-) :-) :-) Many,many thanks!
- Mepo: "wow" also to your comment :-) The song is really "sticky", isn't it? :-) thanks a lot for such nice comment!
- Slieb: same, I'm very happy you liked it so much. Many thanks!!
- Alberto: great cumpliment from the king of "different ones"!! Grazie mile!! (hope I've not mispelled that ;-)

Aug 24, 2009
    So, what could I say, I'm more than happy that you liked so much my pic, thanks a lot to all of you for such nice comments!!!

- kjwags: LOL! certainly, I've drinked not so much, my hands were still firm... an hour later the pic wouldn't have been the same :-D
- Lindy: thanks for such long&nice comment, I'm glad you liked it :-)
- Gail, Jade, ThingFish: Thanks a lot also, I thought the abstract approach could be a bit risky with this challenge theme, I'm glad you liked it.
- Lo, Raf: I'm more than happy that you find the pic so strongly connected with the song. Thanks a lot / Gracias!!

Aug 24, 2009
    I like it!
I'm happy when I see something "different"...Great one!

Aug 23, 2009
    Great abstract, the song fits well, but the pic really stands on its own very well, I like the different layers of the shot and those bubbles on spot on sharp. My TT.

Aug 23, 2009
    Congratulations. I think it worked perfectly and now can't get the song out of my head! Great imagination - it made me thirty as well. I love the composition and the 3D appearance of the bubbles. Wow.

Aug 23, 2009
    Oh yes, I enjoyed it. Actually I enjoyed it so much that I put it on #1. (I tried to get wine bubbles and take a picture, it's not easy!)

Aug 22, 2009
    High TT. Very good shot with lovely crisp detail. Like the layering and a strong match to the song.

Aug 22, 2009
    As soon as I saw the song title, I could here the Reggae version in my head. Great choice of a photo. I love the colour and composition.

Aug 22, 2009
    Interesting and almost abstract in appearance. Well executed and visually eye catching close up. Good song title choice.

    Nicely matched to a song, well shot, sharp and original.

Aug 21, 2009
    Always liked that song ... this is a wonderful abstract image.

Aug 21, 2009
    What a great job you did with this! And it sounds like you had a real fun time doing it :)

There's perhaps a little too much dark area in the foreground, though that's a minor issue. The image fits the song title perfectly, and I like UB40, which is an added bonus :)

All credit to you for thinking of a song and taking the photo for the challenge. Many have done what I did and tried to find a song title to fit the image - the easy way out!

Overall an excellent entry and one that is high in my TT. Good luck!

Aug 20, 2009
    Well looks like you didn't have to drink to many before getting this shot as it is definitely in focus & great clarity on the bubbles. I like this take on theme.
