Award Winner: The Triangle of Broken Glass

I am delighted to share that my first competition entry was a winner with New Jersey's 70 South Gallery in Morristown.  I responded on a whim to an invitation to shoot an image between September 1st and 8th with the theme "triangle."  Using the incredibly high resolution (50.6 MP) Canon 5DS R and testing the phenomenon Zeiss Otus f/1.4 lens wide open, I photographed this broken wine glass on a white marble slab, shooting into the light for this rimmed halo effect.  Zeiss Otus lenses are renowned for their incredible crispness, micro contrast and saturated color.  A strictly manual focus lens, it takes great patience to capture accurate focus when the depth of field is just millimeters deep.  In this image, only the point of break on the glass is in crisp focus.  Careful examination will reveal triangular shapes repeated in the image.     


Produced on glossy metal, check out my Broken Glass image on the wall of 70 South Gallery during the month of October.  


Photo Details:  Canon's 5DS R body, Zeiss Otus 85mm f/1.4 APO Planar for Canon mount, ISO 500, f/1.4, 1/160 second, natural late afternoon light only.
