I love love this photo and if it weren't for that stinkin' rikki you'd have a ribbon (j/t rikki)!

The setup, the colors, the refractions, and overall feeling of this photo are simply fantastic.

There - you're ahead of me!!! :)

Gorgeous!! Cool image, and refreshing. Makes me want to be in Hawaii!

Only bad thing is there are some jaggies (aliasing), for instance on the neck of the glass at the very bottom of the image, and on the top rim of the glasses.

Wow! This is a deceptively simple picture, my friend!

Very careful use of Photoshop, I suspect, what with the ice cubes in the middle glass, the top one very like an island floating on water, with what looks suspiciously like the underside of an iceberg, and no drinks in the other glasses. If they are real glasses, then they must have hugely long stems, as there is no appearance of any glass bases in the shot. I like the warm tones in the refractions and stems, and the cool light and blue sky and sea beyond the island

I am darned sure it's not 'real', but it is very effective - I look forward to finding out how you did this - It's not clear to me at all

Good luck with the image

Lovely nested arrangement and colors, even if a bit overdone. Nested inner glasses seem to be floating. Love it.

Gorgeous. The extra saturation really works here.
