Not too satisfied with this shot. It was all I had so I posted it. I need to get real lighting and soon. Another last minute edit and swap ;) Just hoping it'll pass for a 6.0.

Post challenge:

Thanks so much for your comments and votes :)

My original post had both bottles in view. I wasn't sure about the crop of the top right but the clarity and shape of the pours here won me over. And at the end I kinda liked that only one bottle was visible so I decided on this. Now as for what I would've liked to have done better and tried for... the timing of the pours wasn't easy. Working with the 10sec timer. I had a very helpful friend hold the glasses as such and I tried timing the pour. We had 6-8 takes overall. The liquids where originally blue and green. The green liquid is soda, right out of the bottle. I'm not too happy with how I ended up sharpening this one too. But it was all worth it for the laughs we had setting this one up.

I liked seeing this during the challenge. The red and green pop out well from the white background. And the colors, plus the fact that they are beverages, really make for a festive shot.

This is wonderful, exactly the way it is. I can imagine a print of it hanging in a modern kitchen or bistro. Great work and congrats on top 10.

i likes this, although i think it'd be better if it were zoomed out a little, and if you could see the top of the red bottle

Nice action on the pouring water, a little too high key for my tastes though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

nicely executed, which the green liquid pouring into the glass was better lighted 7
