  #207 Oktoberfest
Entry 2 of 11
   
 
Bloody Mary Morning       ©2018 RobertLavker
Panasonic DMC-GX7       2nd place, 123 points
2s, f5.6, ISO 125, 18mm, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: RAW files converted with Adobe RAW. Decreased shadows, decreased highlights, increased contrast; curves; filter-unsharp mask. Used same settings for 3 images that only differed in focus. Loaded 3 files into stack and aligned layers; auto-blend the layers.       Extra Info: My apologies to Willie Nelson and Gumby

This is a focus stack of 3 photos.

    Golly, the detail throughout is incredible. Great job with the focus stacking.

    Like the textures in the wood, and the receding perspective adds drama and interest. Would prefer somewhat reduced exposure, as the scene overall seems rather brightly lit for a bar. A bartender at work down the bar would add human interest to what's now a fairly sterile scene. Well shot nonetheless.

    Clever pic, but a bit HDR for my liking. I would like the flare softened too and some action of making, serving or drinking. Still does well.

    I really like the composition here, with the Bloody Mary dominating the photo and the counter and shelves drawing the eye into the photo. The detail is really great.

    Nice composition. Not sure focus stacking was needed. Better if lighting of the glass were from the front.

    Very clear photograph and interesting, complex subject. Bright lights are a bit strong in my opinion. An added human perhaps? It seems a bit surreal without any life.

    this is my favorite on first go through. (it is also my favorite drink while out dining)
that said, is the wood work really that yellow?
and what was the need for focus stacking? maybe much tighter aperture would have accomplished focus issue. (or a cell phone... not joking, i can't believe some shots i've pulled off with a cell phone camera)
still have this in first place.
