Champagne + White Chocolate Liquer = Lava Lamp.
(Really Equals a drink Experiment gone bad.)

I really didn't spend the time to "Get the Light Right". So The end result is not what I intended.

I actually 1st made this drink as a New Year's 2008 experiment at home on 1/1/2008. I tried to imitate a comercially produced wine/champagne "infused"with chocolate.

The harsh light and strong shadows hurt this image. I also think a lower perspective would have been more interesting. I'm really curious as to what's in that drink though...

Different lighting approach but not unappealing. Curious what this drink is.

Wait...people don't really drink that, right? :-) I think you've done a very interesting job lighting this. It does a nice job accentuating the curves on the white bottle.

This image just does not work for me. I can't make out the background or it's relationship to the subject. Although I appreciate the effort with the side light, ultimately it seems to give the drink an odd perspective in relation to the white bottle, and it's a bit harsh with the reflection. 5 for the effort :)
