I love this idea! hehehe... I actually drink both pepsi AND coke.. diet and regular... just whatever's on sale or available. But still. It's always fun to tease Corporate America! I wonder what it would have looked like with a black background rather than a white one. I'm not partial to the "white sheet" look, although I like how the lightbox lit up the can. Or maybe that was one of the other lighting sources lighting it? Hehe.. I don't know. But I like it.

Little did they know what they were really doing making those glasses. This could serve as a great commercial billboard for Pepsi.

I think the glare from the light table takes away from this picture, but I like it otherwise.

Ironic situation and very good picture. Would be better if the Coca-cola on the glass was more evident.

Good one, like the lighting. should send this to Pepsi and Coca Cola. Coca Cola just layed off my father, I'd love to send them this.

I like your idea here a lot but not the presentation. I think the lighting from underneath can be effective, but here it's just making the overall light levels very uneven. The fabric at the top of the frame and the top of the can and glass are very dark - especially on the glass where it is important to read the Coke logo to get the joke. I think you could have had the objects arranged better too, placing them so that they interact more rather than just standing beside one another.

very nicely composed. Kind of subtle too, which I like.

LOL! Excellent capture of the challenge! More even lighting would have gotten you a 10 from me!

This actually happens often you know! Not only with Pepsi and Coke but also with beer brands. In my local it does anyway. But the idea is very good, and the photo is well done. The tight crop at the top of the glass is not negative either.

lol. Nice idea. The light coming from underneath is a nice touch but I think it's a tad overbright.
