I was planning to make lemonade over the weekend, so this challenge was exactly what i needed.

1 cup lemon juice +
1 cup lime juice +
2 cups sugar (or Splenda) +
8 cups water
Delicious summer beverage

I built a very simple lightbox for this shot. I was hoping to use the sun as my lighsource, but the material i used was a bit too thick, and i couldn't find a good spot in the house with direct sunlight. It came out a bit darker then i wanted, but overall i am very happy with it.

nice color and detail, maybe a little crop off the top would be nice, otherwise, nice image, 6.

Great clean shot, like the nice square ice cubes

Although these are beverage ingredients.. it doesn't work for me.

I find this a bit on the bright side. I think a lot of the wonderful details in this image are washed out.

I love the idea of this photo, and the square ice cubes are cool, but I think the lemons and limes needed a big color pop to really make it stand out.

I like the composition, the cubes lead right up to the limes and lemons.
i dislike the way the more i move up on the photo the brighter it gets until its overexposed.

I like your take on the challenge. Different, but certainly meets the description. The only thing I would have done would be to bump the saturation up a little, as I think the lighting sucked a litle of it out. Nice work!

nice setup, but the lighting is a little too flat for me

Clever take. I like it. Strong composition. Decent use of the negative space.
