Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Recipe (Beverage) (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 II
Location: San Antonio
Date: Jul 14, 2008
Aperture: F9
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/15
Galleries: Food and Drink
Date Uploaded: Jul 14, 2008

1 oz vodka
1 oz peach schnapps
1 oz Blue Curacao liqueur
3 1/2 oz pineapple juice

Pour the vodka, peach schnapps, blue curacao and pineapple juice into a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice cubes. Shake well, strain into a highball glass, and serve.


As an alternate I think this might do very nicely frozen!!!


Post processing was rather minimal. RAW, contrast and brightness adjustment layer, crop, resize, unsharp mask, save for web

I didn't vote in this challenge but for me, the model has no connection with the drink and dominates the image instead of the drink. With that in mind, her eyes and face lead me to the right side of the image, away from the drink. I'm also not sold on the lighting, as it highlights neither the model or the drink. I would have scored this a 5 with a possible bump to a 6 depending on the strength of the other entries. Your score seems to reflect this range.

I gave you a six becuase I loved the clarity and the colors. The reason for me it didn't score higher was really by no fault of yours. To me the model looked bored and not arroused. Since the title is Oral sex on the beach, because that's the name of the drink she should be slightly arroused or have a mysterious smile to make the viewer wonder what she's been up to.

I like that there is a person in your picture with the drink. Looks delicious, love the colors.

I wonder if the title of the drink hurt you because of so many straight laced folks around here. Honestly, I love it when I hold my hand up and crop out the drink and her hand - just a cool portrait on its own. :~)

I'm afraid that might be true which is really deeply disappointing, since the title is the name of the drink.

The top of the noose may never pass the line of the cheak.


He probably meant tip, not top. Never heard of that "rule" though. Besides, bearing in mind the title, her nose is not so important :-).

Nice shot Ches!!

I don't get the noose comment. I think it is well done. I love the lighting and I think it's pretty cool that her nails match the color scheme lol. I think you got some great comments and they obviously loved it!

Provocative. Well composed, the red lipstick give a nice point of contrast.

Lighting seems a little hard aroudn her eyes, but not much you could do for that under basic rules. I like the beautiful turquoise tones.

Hey Cheshire..... not sure why things are not happening for this image. Perhaps the title (and I know it is the name of the drink) is just to "in your face" for the prudish ones here at dpc?

I think it looks awesome, great job!

No vote from me obviously.
