Wonderfully quirky. I do love those classic lawn chairs.

A standout in an otherwise not very exciting challenge. Nicely done.

Oh yeah, baby! The reason this didn't do better is you showed the beach house instead of the view. :)

This is fun! It's got a 50's vibe to it with the chair and the colors. I like the little umbrella too.

Very nice picture but I would like to see the drink be a little bit more in focus. Don't get me wrong, I would take a set and drink it before you knew it.

The set-up is neat, relaxing scene.

Nice idea, though I am not sure the centered comp works best.

I'm crazy about the old chair and the daisies in this one! It's so different from everything else I've seen in this challenge so far and I really like it! 9

The composition is a good idea, but the drink is somewhat distant. The chair and flowers take the lion's share of the viewer's attention.

very unique approach. points for originality. except the focus is on the flowers.... not the drink ?

This is a great image, with all of the colors working very nicely together. Feels like a very "southern" photo. Hope this does very well for you, and scoring accordingly.

Very cool idea here and I love the chair and flowers. I do wish the beverage was a little bigger to highlight it a bit more.

Lovely charm to this, great idea.

wish the emphasis was more on the margarita then the chair, flowers and fence. nice idea though

It appears that the flowers int he foreground are in focus, not the margarita.

Ahh! Wish I was there

The drink itself is out of focus, and the flowers, which are in focus definitely do not look to be part of ingredients
