Photo101 Rehab #5 Half Empty or Half Full?

My #5 photo for the “The Clinic” – Photo101 Rehab has a theme: Half Empty or Half Full.

“If we talk about the glass being half empty or half full,

I want to know what the glass looks like from underneath the table.”

–Brad Thor

About the photo: I used Olympus E-M10 and applied monochrome filter from the Olympus app.

And.. if you didn’t know yet what the Photo101 Rehab is, you still can do.


Once upon a time there was Photo101 course with daily assignments, which ended on November 30 and for that we miss it ever since.

Bloggers from all over the world connected as a strong community; sharing photos, chats and tips, and everyone added a special touch to the course, making it addictive.

Some of us, including me, didn’t want to say goodbye, and started feeling the first addiction’s symptoms as described by inmate Albert nty6x at his blog Passionately Curious.

“Withdrawal symptoms may include the incessant need to carry your camera everywhere with you, the need to wake up in the wee hours to take photos during the golden hour, and checking up on others you met during the course to see what their newfound knowledge has brought fruit to.”

I had to think of something to resolve this.

Welcome to the Photo101 Rehab Center; especially dedicated to some confessed addicts: my fellow blogger and first ‘patient’ Andy Townend, as well as Mara Eastern, Cardinal Guzman, DesleyJane, Justine, and to all others not yet confessed photo101 addicts.

The Rehab rules are simple:

Opening time: Add your link from 04 to 31 December 2014.

Themes: You only need to choose a technique you want to explore or already master but want to share. It is a free theme but bring with it an explanation of the technique you used, as well as any editing effects, so we can all learn from each other.

Vote: If you want you can vote on the photos you like the most. At the last day (Dec 31) of the Photo Rehab you  can vote on the top 10 and celebrate.

How to register: Create a post with your photo, and add it here by using the link below.

Have fun! And thanks for participating.

  1. Ok ok this is FANTABULOUS!!!! I just made a new word to express my utter joy in this photo! Wow really super!!! We should go into business as professional photographers!!!


      1. I’m glad you like the word since it completely describes your photo!
        No, I haven’t gotten a call yet from the mayor… He’s probably busy with other NYC stuff but hope he will call soon! Lol!


  2. this reminds me of a great line i heard (and used on an old post) on a british tv show – “poor me, poor me. pour me another drink.”

    what kind of overhead lighting is that, out of curiosity?


  3. What an awesome picture! half empty, half full?.. as long as there is something in the glass, should be enough to make us happy, no? 😉 Have a lovely day!


What do you think? I'd love to hear it all.
