Greetings from the critique club :)

Well don´t really know what to say as constructive critizism, I like the shot pretty much as it is. Only thing that I would change was I would have had just a little bit more space at the bottom but only like 2-3% just so that the glasses don´t seem to cramped in there.

That´s it, I like everything else about the shot, the colors and lighting in particular. I still am not really in awe about photos like this so I would "only" have voted this a 7 but I know how hard they are to do so I respect that. In short, I think the only reason this didn´t do better is that a lot of people who participate on DPC are like me, we want awe inspiring photos every time of something extraordinary like a killer sunset, some exotic location or portraits of very interesting people and that is usually what does well in free studies.

Anyway, nice job :) Kind regards from Iceland, Lárus.

Elegant use of color. A bit more space at the bottom would improve the design. 8.

I like the simplicity of this picture. The colors really caught my attention. One minor thing that was distracting to me was the small dark spot on, what I believe to be, the bottom of the glass that is lying down.

i like the look of the frosted glass but i think the background is a bit destracting, the lighting in the background seems a bit harsh compared to the soft lights in the cups
