    Glass (what else?) in B&W

    I can easily imagine these two hanging as a pair on a wall.

    Mike, interesting compositions! I like what you've done with the positive and negative space and how the shapes echo each other. There are two things that don't really work for me on these, and that is, the items being cropped off at the edges, and the tones being too "gray" for me (I'd prefer more white and contrast, the bg seems too gray for me.). Just one man's thoughts

    Thanks for your comments, Matt!

    I have no idea why I was in the mood for a more modern look of positioning some of the objects at the edge of the frame but that was my mood. I realize that a lot of people will prefer a brighter background that generates more dynamic range and contrast, but I had this look in mind as I set up the photos. I tried the brighter background just for kicks and it didn't work for me, probably because I had a different look in mind from the outset.
