Congrats -- this was definitely one of my favorites this week!

I am so mad at myself for giving you so high score. No, not at all, it´s a fantastic shot and really worth 2nd place. But it was tight. Congratulations! /Carsten (3rd)

congrats on a great image and second place :)

Thank you to everyone who voted for my photo - I didn't expect to finish this high up. For anyone who noticed that the label is upside down this is actually the kind of whisky bottle used behind bars, hanging upside down so the label reads the right way up then. It also helps that it is substantially bigger than a normal whisky bottle which helped with the composition.

Thanks again

Congrats, yours is a picture that not only looks as though you might find it, it tells a story. One that is so very sad. Good job. Autool

nice metaphor and beautiful landscape

The colours in this seem a little bit washed out, but it's so beautiful, and witty as well :). I gave it 10 - lisae

Is their label always applied upside down? Interesting viewpoint.
10/13/2002 03:24:00 PM

I love this one, the title fits it perfectly! The shot is vet atmospheric and contains the element of garbage in a humerous and beautiful way!

This is one of my favourites this week. You've combined a visually appealing photo with the subject of garbage and a good title.

Excellent shot 10/10

Great composition with the 'valley' in the background and nice representation of the water too. Seems like a good place to sit out a hangover.
But tell me, is the label always upide down on Famous Grouse? :-)))))
It think it does look better this way. 9

10/09/2002 04:33:00 AM

Beautiful setting! :-) Good luck! Grayce aka Gracious

Good shots in this challenge are few and far between. You have one of them. I love the perspective and bottle placement. Only complaint is the faded hills in the bg. It reminds me of the bad air quality that ruins my shots of the Smoky Mts. If you could find a way to put more color into the sky and hills then this would be a 10 for sure. 9 ~indigo997

Give me a break....this is just sooooooooo clever. I love it so much. Well done. I love your brain!!!! Congrats to you.....Good luck. Justine

Very creative.. Excellent!
10/07/2002 03:59:00 PM
Little bit more of color or less foggy... would make it perfect!
Nice pic!

I´m not a fan of still life photos so this one gets high score from me. Nice!
Looked again and decided to change my score from 8 to 9. Well done!

Great idea, nicely done. I'd love to see this a little bit mode "punchy" contrast wise.
