I like the texture in the foreground... I'm finding the front lip being out of focus a bit distracting...

The focus seems to be sharp on the tablecloth so that's where the eyes are drawn.

i like the simplicity, and the water and ice effects. the depth of field i feel is too tight, i can see it on the surface, but it puts the glass itself out of focus.

I really like the shallow DOF here, but unfortunately, the lime seems a bit out of focus. Perhaps slightly deeper DOF would keep the lime and focus and still offer the pleasing background?

Very nice light. The colours do indeed make me think "refreshing".

wish it were a little sharper, but a simple, strong image

shallow DOF puts your focus on the bottom of the glass and nothing else.

personally i feel that keeping the rim in focus instead of the bottom would have helped this pic better
