sorry about the "Green" guys. I used food coloring. it seemed much more aesthetically pleasing to me than the real color of green tea which is slightly vomit inducing. :P

Apparently I missed this one. Hey, it happens - I can't hit every challenge... But the color of real green tea is kinda just a pale yellow, isn't it? Neither here nor there. I like the cascading thing and the thought that this probably made a bit of a mess... :-)

Hmm...apparently I would be in the minority for this one.

I don't really care for the set up or the lighting. The glare on the cups is distracting to me. The few little droplets in the air also don't seem to add anything worthwhile to the shot. The black border seems a bit heavy. Perhaps a different color background would add a little more interest for me.

Mostly, I just think the idea doesn't really catch my interest.

That being said....I am obviously in the minority! :)

Oh ! This shows real imagination and super follow through on the execution. And a pretty darn good finishing score too. Well done!

great idea. It might have been good to have the background a crisper white (or a color). Very nice shot.

Interesting play on the idea.

I like the composition. By stacking the cups, you have added some interest to your shot.

Crisp, clean and i love the green tea pouring from the spout.

lol I like that..It's well balanced.

Nice colours and composition, should do well in this challenge, one of my top pics

The only crticism that I have is the green tea itself. It looks too bluish green.
But this should do very good in this challenge. Great concept and indeed, green tea has a lot of antioxidants.

Nice comp and shot.

This is a really fun idea. The light spot on the kettle caught my eye right away, would have liked it more balanced. I see a few droplets flying out. Wonder if it may have been possible to generate a larger size or amount? I really love this set though. You get extra point just for the beauty of the tea set.

Nice composition and balance here Love what you have done with the liquid, but green tea isn;'t normally that green is it? hehe
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/09/2007 08:09:09 PM
Nice image, i like the creative composition, but the green tea sort of looks like listerine.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like this, just wish the glare off the the dishes wasnt so harsh, great idea though
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/08/2007 08:56:33 PM

Green tea is not that green :-)

03/08/2007 02:18:01 AM
can't tell why this doesn't catch me, good idea, technically fine
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/08/2007 01:30:18 AM
I like the set up - Wish the tea was natural coloured as the green looks just to "Nuclear"!

  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/07/2007 07:42:41 PM
I love the stack of the bowls/cups. Makes the shot a little different! :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
