Excellent picture, Congratulations... Was the "Gin & Tonic" the inspiration for the picture or the reward afterwards?

Great Photograph but not the best depiction of "On the Edge"
12/30/2003 01:52:08 PM
I could use a drink right now. Great shot.
12/30/2003 04:22:09 AM
Technically wonderful!
12/30/2003 01:05:09 AM
I like the very much, the exposure, colors, detail and composition are wonderful. I just think that you really did not need the half a lemon or orange in the reare of the fruit line...the reflections, as much as I normally would like them, do not work for me in this.

Very nice. Colour contrast is great, clarity perfect. 10

Clean photo and nothing wrong with it -10

Perfect match with topic, setup, background, lighting.You would probabely touch up the deranging lightpoint in the back of the glass on top if it was'nt for RULES. Kwality (K for Kiwi)

Nice use of color and contrast.

Nice clean sharp image. 8
12/25/2003 08:17:25 AM
Very nice.
12/24/2003 09:55:39 PM
I am somehow drawn to this photo... maybe it's the gin.
12/24/2003 07:36:22 PM
Very nicelt done indeed. Good use of colours, nice and sharp.
12/24/2003 01:32:17 PM
Nice still life.
12/24/2003 12:12:54 PM
very fine clarity, even bubbles(!), the only quarrel would be the light on the lime and tyhe edge of the glass
12/24/2003 04:01:08 AM
why you using sooooo many lemons and so wide border? but technique and colors are nice
12/24/2003 02:33:44 AM
very well taken shot, very well taken. COlor is fantastic, as is the lighting. Looks fantastic on the black background. Would've been cool to include some of the green and yellow into the border, that just ties it all together. A nice composition, unfortunately it may be lost to many folks as it's a little unconventional for the challenge. Or maybe that's just me! 9 from me!
12/24/2003 01:31:40 AM
Great! (9)
12/24/2003 12:35:55 AM
I like this a lot and it fits the challenge perfectly. The top part of the lemon on the glass seems oversaturated or something to me. It is a very bright yellow and doesn't seem to fit, but other than that it is very good.
12/24/2003 12:30:30 AM
kudos. Beautiful lighting, colors and composition. Nice nice. 9
