I wanted to try painting with light, so I took this photo in the dark using a long exposure and lighting the subject selectively with a flashlight. Certain angles of the light really accentuated the condensation on the glass, which I thought added texture and interest.

this pic gives the willies! i like your interpretaion, the only thing is (even though i'm terribly afraid of snakes) i would've like to see the head of the snake a little bit more. i have to stop looking at it now so i dont get nightmares but you get high marks from me.

Exceptional! Couldn't have thought of a better interpretation myself :)

It doesn't get much better than this. Not only is the maker's interpretation of the theme spot on, but the image can easily stand on its own, beyond this challenge. Everything in this image works to convey the title -- the color of the glass and liquid, the snake, the angle, the disembodied floating, the unspilled liquid, and the reflection that hints at an unseen netherworld beyond the black. Love it!

Can't really see the snake's head (yes I can see all the shades of black in the bar). Otherwise a fantastic shot.
