Looks tasty but a little OOF :/

I like the composition, and it's a good shot. The drop on the lemon is a nice touch.

I think it could use a litte more room on the left of the glass.
Using a tripod would make this picture a bit less blurry.
Also, the background draws some attention away from the picture.

Too blurry.

Like: i like the simplistic point of view and common color of green used in the photo
Dislike: quality is a bit low and focus seems to be almost not in the photo, possibly in front of the lime

Good attempt. It seems to be a little out of focus though and the background is a bit distracting. I can't wait to see the recipe though, the drink looks refreshing.

Neat idea, but the focus seems to be off just a little.

Great drink. Image is out of focus though (slight camera shake maybe?) and the background is a wee bit distracting.

shaky. maybe next time setting the camera on a still surface would help reduce the motion blure. but toerh then that, a nicely colored photo,

Nice color. I wish that the lime in the glass was more in focus.

This picture would have appealed more had there been a plain background.
