I mainly got this idea from a time at a restaurant where a friend ordered a drink and I seriously thought it looked just like antifreeze. I'm going to have to find that drink and compare it to the antifreeze. Thanks for all the comments! When I was working on the levels I was debating on how to set the brightness. Since my monitor is calibrated and I work in a dimly lit room I suppose that the detail I see is easily washed out on a monitor that isn't calibrated. Oh well, I suppose that is something to consider in future challenges. I only had a flashlight to work with for the lighting so I figure this turned out pretty well considering. Good for my first post....

Prestone is a brand of antifreeze. That is the genious; it's antifreeze disguised as a drink. I picked this one for top 5 in this category.

humm.. what? i saw it and thought it was a flaw?? what's the humor?

can't believe you didn't do better. the prestone must not be visible on everyone's monitor's. people need to adjust their monitors around here if they are going to vote on photographs. it's not fair to others because their monitor is too dark and they can't see the subtleness of a great shot such as this one. sorry.

the background takes from this.. so sorry because it coulde have been sssooo good.. but still its a 7 from me

At first glance, I didn't even notice the Prestone container......might have added to the photograph if it was just a tad less obscure. Great thinking!

i like the lighting, but that first lemon slice is a little washed out

Clever, the beverage is an excellent shade of "anti-green", the bright spot on the glass is okay but too bad the front lime is washed out with light, perhaps softer lighting would have eliminated that.

Amazing colors captured.

Took me a minute to get this wasn't really a drink, I kept wondering what "Prestone" was until I remembered "antifreeze"

Oh thats good! Deadly, but good!
03/10/2006 12:47:28 PM
Nice picture! Very clever theme. I hope everyone understands what Prestone is, however.

Wow. Let's hope no one takes you up of this offer... Well executed image, except I would have made the Antifreeze bottle a little more visible... I have a calibrated monitor, and it's tough to see at first...

Sly... I love it.
03/09/2006 07:26:00 PM
Nice. I like it.
03/09/2006 03:36:41 PM
Sorry, I don't get it. Maybe there's not really liquid in the glass?
03/09/2006 10:46:41 AM
whats the big deal its here..... the pic is good... nice use of light in the darkness.... could have given a better title.... i still dont understand what sort of disguise is happening here.... apart its a nice pic
03/09/2006 10:28:24 AM
No thanks, looks like antifreeze to me. A good shot nonetheless
03/09/2006 08:42:45 AM
Makes me cringe. Shock effect, for sure. Effective photo. Good composition. Some blown out highlights on the lemons and glass.

A nice shot. It is a pity thast the ligth burned the first lemon clove.

That's subtle! I like it.
03/08/2006 09:07:28 PM
Lovely colour. I find the yellow blowout to left very distracting. I like the balance of the image - I think you got the negative space on the right just right.

Very original and very pleasing image. Almost missed the point becuae of the very dimly lit word but wouldn't make the same impact if more visible... great job.

I like the shadowing in the background. A little morbid...

not very disguised, and the comercial like pictures aren't very appealing.
03/08/2006 11:55:04 AM
Not really getting the connection here.

03/08/2006 06:41:02 AM

Clever idea. Could use some work on the lighting.

not sure how this fits the challenge
03/08/2006 02:36:27 AM
i had to look hard to see the label in bg, maybe just a little more obvious might have been better 8

Great work!

Hahahahahahaha.... Lordy I hope people's monitors are calibrated correctly! Enjoyed. Also, there is a spooky monster in the light reflection in the glass :)
