Janet,

Kudos for resubmitting! I agree with Mark that the glass is still playing tricks with your eye perspective-wise. Try lightening and blurring the back portion of the black oval on the bottom of the glass and perhaps add just a hint of highlight on the front oval on bottom as well as the entire oval on the top. Perspective is always a challenge!


I've attached a quick example of what I mean.

Thanks for looking TPaul. I vote for a smaller cork.

As for Janet's glass, your edit looks better. I think it looks much better and my head doesn't swim as much when I look at it.

Mark

Hopefully no offense at the edits...just suggestions and an easier way to show what I mean. I am learning just like everyone else.

Mark,

Did you use noise to create the cork's texture? Love the extra detail of the wet side and the dry side.

The cork was a rectangle filled with a "corkboard" pattern, but by the time I scaled it (too large!), put the text on it, capped the end with a foreshortened disk of "corkboard", warped a little bulge on the dry end, applied a gradient to make it look 3D and stained the wet end, I had no cork grain left. It was just a light brown cylinder with a funky taper.

So yes, noise and motion blur.

BTW, I never find the edits offensive. Half the fun of this stuff is taking existing images and playing with them. Did you ever play Photoshop ping-pong?

No, sounds interesting. I wonder if it is like Art Tag. PM me the basic rules. Perhaps it is something I can set up here.

Too funny about the optical illusion. That was on purpose folks. Notice how the glass seems to be floating? It isn't standing on anything. There is no reference point behind it to give one the idea that it might be against a wall or whatever. The glass is just floating around.

Yes, I could have given it different lighting or put ice cubes in it or...but I didn't. Tis just my idea of weird for the day.

Yup, Tag Art is like Photoshop ping-pong for teams. I'll have to get in on one of those Art Tag thingies.

Thanks.
