Here's a picture I took yesterday that I am particuliary proud of. A lot of work but I think it was worth it!

Looks fantastic. The reflection looks a tad odd, was it added?

You're right Will, reflection was added in post. Care to elaborate what feels ''odd'' about it?

Looks good! I agree on the reflection as well. The perspective seems off a bit, more so around the bottom edge of the can. Creating circular reflections in post is a pain in the butt...

Still can't see what's weird about it..? Anyone care to explain/show what's weird about the added reflection or how it should look like instead?

first thing i noticed about the reflection...

since the reflection does not touch the can at the "edges" of the can, that implies the can isnt sitting flat on the reflective surface. that gives the reflection more of a diagonal feel, like the top of the can in the reflection is further up and forward of what it should be. see what i mean?

take a mirror, put your can on it. see how the reflection of the can bottom perfectly mates with the can bottom? now take the can and place it at a 45° angle on its bottom edge. see how the reflection does not mate up with the bottom of the can? thats the issue.

if you take the corners of the reflection and pull them up to match the bottom edge of the can, you've got it. and on that note, nailed the shot and PP. all in all, its an awesome shot.

Thanks for that Ram! That's what I was waiting for!

I wasn't sure if the reflection should have touched the bottom of the can. Guess I'll try to correct that :)
