@Jen: thank you!
Honestly, that does not look like a bottle with milk. More like Mr. Monopoly's Eye Piece LOL! I love it when photos make the known object look entirely different! Taking the normal and making it unique. Awesome job!

@Paolo Micheli: thanks. well the idea of photographing a bottle came from macroday. i was having a lot of trouble getting decent shots from other angles so i just went with this one. it looked kind of awkward to me since the dof effect left the actual body of the bottle in a total blur. seemed like there was something hypnotic about the circle.
Wow, wasn't even aware you could find milk in a bottle. Fun perspective, now let's see the mild mustache ;-)

@Kevin at OrganicPIX.com: funny. but you made a good observation. this glass bottle wasn't bought with milk in it -- it originally contained juice but was then washed and reused as a container of milk. ;)
It's amazing what a little change of point of view can do. Great creativity and great capture. Congrats!

@Craiger: thank you!
Very cool! I like the way the rim seems to be lit up from within.

@baobab: thanks! that was one reason i went with the monochrome -- that light came out more.
Beautiful way to present a bottle milk, I really do like it. ;)

Wonderfully abstract capture. Well done!

Stunning! I absolutely love this. The light is amazing! How did you light this? Brilliant job!

@Melissa: thanks. the light was a lucky accident, i think it's just a reflection of the ceiling light overhead.
