Kim what an awesome photo! My fave part is the reflection. So crisp and clean. Love that background lighting too.

a little closer shot would have got you a ribbon for sure. This is an amazing set you have here but I think all the space got you.

I like this picture but I wish the bottom was showing just as much as the top. Nice work.

Splash shots generally do pretty well. This ought to wind up placing fairly high. Nice work on the reflection.

Wow; I am refreshed just looking at this shot. This reminds me of a a martini I had in Boston's Italian North End at a Soccer bar/espresso/martini joint. It was called the Blue Hawaiian. The drink was not as pretty as your photo, with all teh wonderful gradations of blue- (from painting I recognize the table color as paynes grey- a mix of ultramarine blue and a cool ivory black its a great shadow color) but it sure made me walk about 6 feet of the street. Good luck- my top three.
