Hi. This is my first submission on this site. I've been following for nearly 2 years or so and I just got my first ever DSLR yesterday. This challenge was open so I just snapped up an ice cold sprite and put it on a desk in my room =]

Hang in there, Lee. The more challenges you enter, the better sense you will get of what scores well. Try not to get discouraged!

Lots of stuff going on in the background.

Why is the top of the can cut off ?
What is in the background ?
Why not show the entire logo ?

Although the challenge is based on basic editing, the entry should have been given much thought and preparation. It would be very unfair if i judged this based solely on editing and not give points for other criteria such as concept, lighting, composition and the overall look to which the other entries excel.

In spite of the limitations on the amount of editing work which could be performed on this photograph, much could have been done to improve this image through cropping, tone/color adjustments and the likes. Nevertheless a point for being on topic :-)

Looks like you didn't put much time or thought into this. There are distractions in the background, the framing is haphazard, and the label isn't even in view.

not much for a recipe, i like the cold effect on the can though. but i dont like the busy background and the way the top of the can is cut off

Why this angle?

well, uh, dont know waht to say...sprite rules

Would have liked the can entirely in the frame also that object on the left side is distracting

nice can in this snapshot

An out-of-focus sprite can with a busy background and head-on flash lighting: not so terrific.

Nice and color and detail in the can. However, the composition and subject are lacking.
