Taken on a Piece of Glass over a black cloth.
Was a Flaming Dr. Pepper (Amaretto and 151 in Shot, dropped into a Beer)
Dropped the Flaming shot in the glass, and then the glass broke.. Thus plan B. Light the shot in a broken glass. Hence the Exploding Shot Drink. My new Invention.

The overall concept of this photo does not coincide with the subject matter which is Recipe(Beverage). Although the shot of a wine glass or bottle gives a hint, the blue flame and the broken glass suggests this as more of a scientific experiment than a drink. Although i give credit to the preparation and execution of this shot as clearly much time and effort was devoted in creating it.

As to editing, considering the limitations imposed on the entrants, i say its good. Overall I give the photo a 6/10.

neat flame color. from blue to orange. i also like the glass shards, but they should be more noticeable to really understand the photo without the title.

a bit too dark to show the details of what is happening at the side of the glass
