I suppose my reaction's opposite to what you want. I don't see the point of this shot.

*Critique Club*
This is really refreshing looking. Someone will slap me for saying this, but I'm so glad you didn't put little water droplets all over this. It amazes me that every other photo you see now has water droplets all over it. Sometimes it works, I guess. But other times it looks like a sad ploy to try to make something that isnt interesting, interesting by splashing it with water. Which then just makes it desperate.
Anyway, I really like the angle and framing/cropping you chose for this. Out of the ordinary, and I like the dramatic angle. Not head on, which is is good for visual effect. I also like the fact that you didn't just turn the camera, you turned the GLASS itsself. You can see this by the way the water is leaning inside the glass. Sometimes it looks silly to see something leaning, but the elements that should be leaning with it, such as hair and water, are still perfectly straight. I like the realizm in this shot.
Focus and clarity look great to me. I think that the clarity of the ice really makes my mouth water. We can see it, and see it very clearly, and it's displayed well. Also, the watermellon is delicious looking as well. not dried out and nasty, really fresh and juicy and ready to eat.
I see some negative comments about the background, however, I think it's ok. The color of the watermellon is different than the color of the background, making it stand out nicely. You have blurred the background in such a way that there are no distracting elements visible in the background, and we can focus solely on the subject.
Had this had a different color background, I think it would take away from the color of the watermellon. As is, I think that it fits the challenge nicely. And without an "in your face" aproach to the colors.
Nice job.

I really did like the concept, but the appearance of specks on the glass brought it down some.

Comment by K-Rob:
Interesting picture. I like the idea and the composition is great but the crop seems a bit heavy on the right. Too much grass. But you may have done that intentionally so I won't deduct any points. I can't help shake the feeling that parts of the grass are doubled. Hard to explain, but that what I see. Anyway - 8

Very clever, and nicely composed. Good and sharp, good lighting. Very good background.

Comment by qachyk:
Heh, interesting concept, and very nice picture, but it might have served the colouring expectations better to take it against a different background -- there's a bit too much green-flowing-to-green to really emphasize the topic, though the focal object certainly does.
