That is one of several I took for a photography contest a while back titled "Noir: Embrace your dark side", ended up not using that particular shot for the contest (3 max allowed there per week's contest), but felt it fit this month's theme well. I have the rest of the set posted on picasa in a protected album, if anyone would like to see the rest, drop me a PM, but as they are rather dark (but obviously none really graphic) I'll refrain from posting the link in thread.

right back at you macfred., is that a composite image with the texture added in post? There's so much texture and depth I can't quite figure out how one would accomplish it all in camera. I have one from the Noir series that has a "ghosted" hand lifting the drink glass away and off-frame that I did in camera with low light and a 1 second exposure, but didn't feel it was right for this contest.

Thank you for the very kind words on my work ...
I used two single captures and one texture layer for my composing.
Really like your 'drink glass away and off-frame' -
It's a pretty dark one.

But it's not your photo ... it's your wife's photo. Photos belong to whoever takes them, not to who is in them. So welcome your wife to the contest.
