Opened NEF with PS-CS2, resized, cropped, saved for web, adjusted selective color back to restore color saturation.

After three evenings of droping the lime slice I finally caught the splash I was looking for. The shot originaly included salt around the rim to simulate a margarita but after each shot (and splash) I had to dry everything off, re-salt, and refill the glass before I could take the shot again. Overall the shots without the salt worked fine.

I reviewed the image on several monitors, including ones that weren't calibrated for photos, to make sure it looked ok. Hope it looks as good on your screen as it did on all the ones I reviewed it on.

Horrible lighting, terrible composition, bad idea, poorly executed, and you should make the top 10.

the splashing thing is geting overdone, but this is still one of the top pitcures in the challenge. Good luck!

I like it, but I think there needs to be a little more light. I think it is cropped a little too close on the left too.

I would have liked to have seen a different color background. But nice indeed. 8

Nice golden green on this one. Like the angle. Good focus on the base of the glass.
