Playing with light in the dark

Here is a nearly monochrome picture that I took while waiting in the dark. The fire and one candle were the only light in the room. The crystal glass was almost a beacon of reflected light in the dark room.

I tested out some of the black and white options available in Lightroom on it.I like it in black and white because it takes the purple color of the wine out and the glass really shines. The antique light preset has a warm cast to it that suits the scene a bit better than the cold feel of the green filter. I was a bit surprised that the sepia didn’t have more warmth in it.
