Proportional representation worried me this morning….

There is a clear discrepancy in the proportion of wine to wood in this picture, yet the wine would get my vote every time. How can this ever work?

  1. Wine is more efficient? More warming than wood, perhaps? They look equally good in this shot, as does the basket.

    If you drink the wine, you’ll solve the problem 😉

  3. Add more wine. No, get another basket.

  4. If you have your lens closer to the wine then the wine will look bigger and the wood smaller!
    That should be rule #1 of wine photography 😉
    A glass of wine in front of the fire warms me usually!

    Great picture of the bottle of wine, Roger, but, what wood?

  6. you could start photographing wine cellars? 😉

  7. Hmm…drink the wine in shot glasses?

    What a beautiful earthy photograph, and a clever way to illustrate a political point!

  9. Says plenty about the power of wine that it can be so disproportionately important in the composition considering how little of the ‘real estate’ of the image it occupies. Firewood? What firewood? Hand me a glass of that pretty wine!
