Nice light on the brew.

I like the lighting and the props. Nice idea followed through with a great photo.

I like this one.....
10/10/2006 06:45:35 AM
Terrific shot and composition
10/10/2006 04:45:58 AM
Good thinking! Love the concept, but I'd like to see more "sweat" on the bottle as well as the light coming all the way through in the bottle...
10/10/2006 02:18:01 AM
nice concept and wonderful lighting
10/10/2006 01:44:44 AM
Perfect for me!
10/09/2006 05:26:35 PM
I like it ...
10/09/2006 12:00:08 PM
This is a spectacular shot! :) The rich tones and perfect balance of highlights and shadows really makes this one pop. The way that you lit the bottle and ice is awesome. :D

another gorgeous image. good lighting. the only thing, optically its a bit tilted to the right. or is it just me. 9

I don't get it, but then again I've never been to the states.
good lighting, but the rope confuses me. and icecubes, in beer?

The lighting seems a tiiiiny bit unbalanced (eg there could be a bit more distinction on the bottle cap) (or maybe things look a bit unbalanced because of the slight asymmetry of the photo?), and the reflections in the bottom right of the image are a little distracting. However.... besides these very minor things, I think this image is perfect (and I can't bring myself to mark you down for any of these things!!)

Wonderful lighting and setup here.
10/05/2006 10:03:13 PM

10/05/2006 12:16:19 PM
cruel to me the viewer?
unusual to who mr. coors light drinker?
10/05/2006 09:09:07 AM
I am missing condesation on the bottle with all that ice around.
10/05/2006 12:31:57 AM
Excellent idea and execution! I'm sure this will ribbon!
10/04/2006 12:44:33 PM
Nice shot. I would have liked just a little bit of light on the top to balance the highlights at the bottom of the image.
10/04/2006 10:35:57 AM
Great idea...Lighting's a bit harsh and I might've asked for a less centered comp to allow space for text placement. I could still make this work.
10/04/2006 09:23:59 AM
I like the back lighting, the top gets a little lost though.
10/04/2006 06:54:50 AM
Good pic. More light on the top.
10/04/2006 05:22:24 AM
this image would work as an ad...well done
10/04/2006 03:36:22 AM
Good enough to have been a full page ad in a magazine ... !
10/04/2006 01:13:33 AM
Very creative and VERY well executed!
