Sort of last minute entry from me, shot with 4 hours left in the challenge rather than at the 11th hour. The lighting came out nice even thought i didnt have much to work with... just one flourescent lamp held over the three glasses. Really wish i could get rid of some of the reflections on the glasses. Basic editing rules...

Post - crop, selective color, curves, neat image, usm

Great shot! Good job on your top 20 finish!

One of my favorite shots; I hope I wasn't too harsh on my comments...

I predict a top 10. Change that, top 5.

I like the tittle and the idea is really cool. I really like the ligthing. The glasses look a little smuged

lighting is very appealing. reflections on the glass are distracting, but without a polarizer, there's not much that can be done. the different levels of liquid in the glasses provide a nice sense of motion in this picture. I'd have liked to see a bit more milk in the leftmost glass. good work, anyway... I hope the final score is over 6.

This one is really appealing to me. I like the orange/red and the white. The only issue for me is that the milk looks yellowed - I'm guessing it's the color of the glasses? 8

Great idea, great background, great colors, great shadows, great title. It's the reflections that are killing me with this shot!!! I can only give this a 5 because I can see everything on your kitchen counter (& possibly through the windows to the apartment building behind you...). I would have loved to have given it an 8 or 9.

Wonderous lighting and superb still life. Too bad about the reflections on the glasses though, but not much to do about it in basic. Well done!

Nice clean image. Like the lighting and coloration. Neat idea

i didnt like this at first - but milk looks pretty cool with a backlight, so ill take my first opinion back ;).

Good lighting, but it would have been cooler to get the reflections of the other glasses out

Good in a tech sense but lacks appeal graphically. 6

This is nicely done. I really like the contrast betwen light and dark. The only thing that bothers me is the slight yellowish cast. Maybe I'm just used to my milk being white.

I like the idea and the coloring. For me, I would have scored it higher if it was cropped a bit more tighter around the glasses, but very cool!

Great image, the reflections in the empty glasses are a little distracting, 8 !

Great title. Interesting use of light. I like this and it is extremely artful, considering the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like the glass is half empty/full motif. This is one of my favs.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Alright! GREAT light. The subjects are beautifully done and the spill onto the cyc is perfect
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 05:08:27 AM
I really like the lighting in this one. Can I ask something though....is that actually milk in those glasses? How did stop it going all down the inside of the glass and leaving a white taint. 9
