maxwell house and milk go well together - a play on their slogan...

i handheld the straw with the end pinched to try to control the drips as best i could - i moved the straw forward and backwards to get it square to the camera, and in focus. cropped only to the 8x10" aspect ratio.

shot in RAW - +.80 exposure - selective color adjustments - unsharp mask.

I like your use of colors. I like how they all stand out. The blue is blue and the red is read. I especially like how white the milk is. Other pictures looked like their milk was spolied or something. Gross. Anyway I really like this picture! Good job! 10.

Very crisp macro shot. Maybe less straw and more milk drop in the frame would have been better. The straw takes most of the attention at first. Love the nice gradient blue background.

7 - Like the concept, colors work well. Criticism; wish the drop were nice and sharp, rather than the straw. An even closer zoom/crop, slightly different 'centering' would also have made this a better shot in my opinion.

At first I thought it was a little too simple. But the more I look at it, the more I like it. The color, comp, etc...etc...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

A nice clean shot and makes you wonder where that drop will end up, but the background tends to make the overall image just a touch boring.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

As a graphic designer, I like this shot a lot. Simple, yet powerful and great colors. 10!

Beauiful shot. Nice leading lines. Perfect whites.... good blured background. I would say a high finisher in this challenge. You get a 10 from me.

Wow, I love this. I honestly keep feeling like it's actually going to complete the drip and drip down my screen. It lookds great.

Very nice, different, clean simple, good color, good composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 01:25:38 PM
Good catch! I wish the straw was a solid color to contrast the background.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 11:12:04 AM
Great color! The drop is ever so slightly out of focus, would have been perfect otherwise.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 02:52:28 AM
Fab shot, like this a lot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 12:52:44 AM
Excellent capture. I really like the vivid colors. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 12:27:12 AM
Really good. Perfect positioning of the stripe of the straw and the drop against the vivid blue is done quite well!! My one crituque is that the true focus is on the upper part of the straw and not the drop for some reason, or maybe it's just my old eyes.
