I guess I'll start off with how I took this picture. It took me a while to get the image I wanted. I first took a picture of my mouth, which was a little blurry, but that didn't matter since it would be out of focus anyway. I printed it our and suspened it a few inches behind the can which was suspended itself on an angle. I put some tape over a portion of the hole, allowing more soda water to stay in the can which i had removed the bottom from. I then just set up some lights, and snapped the picture.
Finally, I tweaked the levels a bit in Photoshop.

A very interesting point of view indeed. Very creative idea and executed nicely. A bit more contrast would help this out I think, as the pale look doesn't work well for me.

I really like all the subliminals in this one, especially the lips. Good job.

I might have tried less of a crop on this to give the viewer a better feel for the perspective. Or maybe a little further away.

I think if the mouth was more in focus that it would really make the title clear. I had to stare at it for a while before I noticed the mouth.

At first I did not get what I was looking at but now I see that I am looking from within the can going down in to the mouth. Might be more effective if the inside of the mouth was a little clearer. Nice concept.
