What a great take on the theme Iain, nicely controlled lighting and just love the whole image.

Thanks Dave (y)

How !!!
The crystal ball appears to be floating. masked out a stand perhaps?
Love it. The darkness makes it mysterious.
Thanks Tim, it's difficult to make out on the image but there is a small black plastic ring which I use to sit the ball on. Not masked out or anything just lost in the shadow.

Good to see you back Iain (y)
That is a cracking start, and up to your usual standard

Cheers Chris, good to be back and hoping I can kickstart my photography mojo. (y)

Oh boy... The standard has been set :)

If I'd done this there's be a reflection of me squinting into my camera viewfinder. Nicely controlled reflections, subtle lighting, really very nice.

Haha, cheers Ian, I won't deny there had to be a little bit of photoshoppery to remove my reflection ;)

My favourite so far for Week 1. Very imaginative. I'm going to steal this idea for a future photo.

Someone has too much time on their hands! I like it. Spotted the pineapple immediately.

That’s clever, very nicely done! It was immediately obvious what it was as well, must’ve take a while to set up though?

I can see we're going to have to work hard to keep up with your shots this year !
That is indeed excellent use and control of shadows to form the image (y)
Haha, thanks Tim, it's early days and I'm full of enthusiasm but am sure I will have those post and be damned moments/themes.

Thanks (y), not too long really. I've shot a couple of similar images a few years ago, so had practiced the set up process before.

Both very good images.
I spotted it was a pineapple pretty quickly, so you've obviously done your job well.

I can only echo what others have said.

Not only very well executed, but great ideas behind them both.

Thanks Rob. Apologies, I missed your post yesterday, I think we may have cross posted.
I look forward to your take on it.

Note to self ’I must try to think outside the box’ :) What a great idea, it works perfectly and makes for a very eye catching shot as does your week 0 submission. I know I’m going to really enjoy following your thread.
Thanks Susie (y)
