******** POST CHALLENGE ********

Thanks for all the comments and feedback. Will work to learn better lighting.

The wine is actually some red glue on a coat hanger and the glasses have jello in them. So no dirty carpet ;)

Great idea with the cloth, better lighting and reducing those shadows would have put this in the top 5

Great stopped action; did you have to clean the carpet?? The shadows are a little distracting and focus is a little off, but a nice concept.

Interesting concept, very intriguing how you executed the shot, love that! Don't love how the man is wearing mis-matching clothes with the woman, and the harsh flash shadow lines. Maybe shoot on a porch in the evening if all you have is an on-camera flash. Very creative though!! Nine for that!

Good idea, and really nice timing. I wonder how much wine you needed to clean off the carpet.

If you don't mind, I have some suggestions that could possibly take this to the next level:
* Overall the photo seems a bit dark. More light could help show the details
* There are some definite shadows cast from what I assume is a flash. These shadows are distracting
* I feel like the lady is looking into space, where if she were looking at the glass or the man, that might be more realistic
* The guy's jeans don't seem to fit with the rest of their clothes.

I hope this helps!

That'll make a mess on the carpet.

I am impressed by the wine coming out of the bottle. I think it may need for sharpness on the picture, however I love the final result. Good Job

Ooh, I'd hate to see the floor!!

Such a great concept. Ilike the execution except for the flash shadows. I still
like it a bunch. 7.

What a floater! Looks like a very messy image... actually not sure how you got it... must be a towel or some sort of taffy coming out of the wine bottle?

Might crop off some of the ground, as that isn't adding much. If the woman was looking at the man, or at the camera, it might be a bit stronger to me.

Nice shot. Not too fond of the shadowing on the walls behind the people, but I like the idea here. ANd please tell me that's a rag or something that LOOKS like the wine is being poured, otherwise, it could have been VERY messy!!!

Good attempt, however, I like it

Risky... hope the carpet survived!

Oh man, hope this was a one take deal, and your carpet is Stainmaster...

This would be my favorite if the lighting execution was adequate. Great idea, though.

The carpet! Shadows are a bit distracting but great shot. Great effort on this.
