Took so many directions for this challenge - I have about 80 outtakes of all sorts of different themes. Typically - this one was one of the last.
I had been doing "beer pouring ; beer in glass; in pond; even did a dress up with Kabuki mask etc. Our pet turtle was hanging around so I decided to put him in the shot. It worked better than any of the others. "Longneck" by the way is a type of turtle and a type of beer bottle.
Didn't do a lot of post editoring. Shot in RAW (the file -not me).Levels, colour balance, curves, sharpen, save for web.

I like it, nice composition, lighting and colors. And great wordplay (just saw longneck turtles at an aquazoo ;-). A bit grainy though.

Great comp, focus, lighting and DOF. Funny idea. Animals with products they don't consume are always intersting and fun. Nice presentation of product. The composition allows room for text.

On the one hand, this is a pretty lame ad concept. On the other hand, you've presented it like an ad which is great. The photo is well taken, and I could see this sort of thing being in a magazine with a little work. Nice job, good luck.
