Challenge #14 in the Language Of Light series. Hosted by Deleted pending purge.
Challenge has finished
Sometimes you are just a tad late with a trigger. Or you forgot to switch back from Macro to Normal mode. Perhaps you shot something using wrong White Balance, or used an inadequate Program Mode. Maybe it was just badly framed... Let's see how you deal with botched photos to save what can be saved. Show us such pictures spliced together: the ORIGINAL and the REPAIRED. If you want, describe what you have done to salvage the shot. Please read carefully and observe all of the rules!

I was trying so hard to get the proportions, interconnections and the angle of view right that I didn't noticed that the front glass wasn't directly in front of the one behind it. So I mirrored one half of it. BTW, I planned the crop from the start, as this was, with my limited means, the only way to get the angle of view, the reflections and, most of all, the DOF the way I wanted them, so that isn't part of the "salvage".
