I would have liked to do some more clean up, but Basic editing prevents it.

Water colored with green foos coloring, green tipped garnish spear with pearl onions. I liked the way her red lips and red fingernail play against the green liquid.

A superbly crafted image! Tremendous impact.

I find the absence of an opposing thumb slightly disturbing (clearly I am easily disturbed) even though I know by logic that the image is correct and the thumb is simply too low to see. This is very trivial and only crept up on me after several seconds - but now it wont go away ... arrgghh. Where are my pills, I need to lay down.

The background really makes this one pop. Good work.

After seeing so many pictures of green drinks, here's one that actually has some character. Good job!

Great job. I think it adds so much life and interest to the pictures to put a person in. A boring "green liquid in a glass" picture really pops when you introduce the red lips of a mystery woman.

I like the composition and colors. The lighting seems a tad harsh on the right, but otherwise terrific shot.

It's a bit of a DPC cliche image, but there's no denying it's a well done cliche image. The only thing that keeps distracting me is the red nail polish.

Fantastic! The red nailpolish adds to it. The models face could have been a little brighter to emphasize her red lips but it's good that you kept the focus on the green glass.

10 points from me!
