Greetings from the Critique Club!

Well you can't get more indulgent than that for the common man. :P As coronamv pointed out in his comment, a thicker head would have bumped up the appeal. Also, the focus is off a bit. The lower bubbles are fairly sharp but you are not using a wide enough depth of field. I would bump up the aperture setting to at least F/8 to get more of that rim in focus.

Another thing to consider is shooting at a slightly lower angle so that we don't see the back of the rim at all. That's how you'll see a lot of glass images taken when shot head on like this.

That's pretty much it. I do like the use of negative space here and how you got the glass fading into the background. Really if you just improved the DOF so that more is sharp you would have a higher scoring image.

A refreshingly minimalist approach to indulgence -- looks good.

this photo seems a bit soft. it's a good image of liquid in a glass otherwise, but the edges just don't seem as crisp as i'd like. nice composition otherwise though

Follows the KISS principle - definitely a simple idea nicely executed. In my top 20 this challenge.

I love the composition but I think it's too dark.
