[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Lors de mes travaux sur cette photo je me suis rappelé la période de prohibition de vente d'alcool aux Etats-Unis datant de 1920 à 1933, mise en viqueur par des âmes bien pensantes et puis contrée par les "Bootleggers"; cette expression qualifiait 'les hommes qui cachaient une bouteille dans leur botte'! L'expression populaire pour cette boisson frelatée était Moonshine!

While working on this picture I had a thought for the alcohol Prohibition period in the USA dating of 1920 to 1933, decreed by high-minded citizens and rebuffed by the smugglers who sold their own "Moonshine"!

Hello Robert

As they say: if you can't beat them, join them. So as it goes the tax dollars started rolling in. In my younger day's I had quite the collection myself. I started my own prohibition 20 years ago. Well done on the sharpness and color saturation. nice


Hello Robert,
From your private bar? A good collection in any case. The bottles show a lot of shapes and colours and there is a fine effect of the light shining through them and the dark background. It's a technically fine photo, perfectly sharp and well exposed.
Kind regards,

  • Great

Bonjour Robert,
An excellent photo of all these bottles of different shapes and colours. They are very nicely lit too, which makes the blue, green and yellow stand out wonderfully. Excellent sharpness.

Hi Robert
haha...fun shot, fun subject content. This is a type of shot we don't see on TE very often at all. and it looks great with the darkened light and the various colours in the bottles. well done. cheers

Bonjour Robert,

I am so old, I've never drunk alcohol
But your picture is fantastic photographed with all the bottles different drink.
Colours and sharpness are perfect to look at.
An excellent composition, lovely presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.

Bravo et bonne journée,

Bonjour Robert,

Le sujet est bien cadré. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails des bouteilles d'alcool. J'apprécie l'effet de la lumière qui passe au travers des bouteille sur les couleurs. Bonne journée.

Hello Robert, Interesting display of these bottles. Strange, but when something is prohibited or just not available, seems more attractive. Personally, this collection makes no impression on me, I do not drink any alcohol. Excellent picture anyway.

Kind regards MAlgo

Salut Robert,
Bien prise cette vue avec le superbe effet de cette lumière à travers les boutielles, parfit rendu des teintes, excellente netteté et "à la tienne" !

Bonjour Robert,
Vous avez un stock bien approvisionné. Il est grand temps pour une fête.
Une très belle image avec les différentes couleurs et formes de bouteilles.
Excellente clarté et netteté.
Amitiés, Paul
