Nothing fancy. Cut a hole in a box, slip my Maglite inside, cut a hole in a paper towel, place the beer glass on the hole, pour the beer, take the picture, drink the beer, drink more beer. Sharpen a bit, crop a bit. Hope for average > 5.

Holy cow! Thanks for the generous voting. I'll take a 13th place anytime. I was really just hoping to break the 5 barrier. I thought I'd get slammed because the beer was lacking foam and the glass was pretty dirty. I felt that the 1 second exposure caused the bubbles to look like a clump of hair. Thanks again. I'll take it.

competent; fine placement vis-a-vis light source; rich and detailed frame.

this glass of beer resembles Van Gogh's "wheatfeilds"

I like the motion capture of the ascending bubbles. Unfortunately, you've made the same 2 mistakes I have... #1. You misspelled the title. I did the same. That's what I get for resubmitting 3 different times. #2. It looks like it is leaning a bit. On second thought, maybe only I made that mistake. okay so we made only one common mistake. I gotta go now, for some reason I'm feeling strangely thirsty - Good Luck - Inspzil

Good play on words. Good shot of fizz, water on table, etc. but why the off set? Some people may like that but I don't particularly. Makes me tilt my head. This cuts at least 2 points for me.

Great Picture!
10/22/2002 12:13:00 PM
Excellent idea. I'd frame this centrally and zoom in a bit more so that it fills the frame.

really interesting light play with those bubbles! find the differences in background a bit distracting as your subject is so dramatic. Good capture!

Oh my! Oh my! The only flaw is the irregular horizon line, or maybe the choice of tablecloth. It looks like you could have goten some nice reflections around the base if the surface had been less bumpley, and that dark light divide in the back should have been straight (personal peeve, I have a horror of slight;y tilted horizons)

Love the effect the long exposure had on the bubbles. 7 - Konador

this subject would be better a littler closer and in the middle, but very nice picture.

Why didn't I think of this. The subject is so close to my heart. Seriously tho good photo I haven't seen anybody do a long exposure on a fizzy drink so that you get that swirl.

very nice shot.... straighten it up a bit and it would be extra nice :) - setzler
10/21/2002 09:16:00 AM
almost perfect...

The effect in the glass is great, seems a little of balance, otherwise would be a great behind the bar poster is enlarged and framed.

This is a great shot! The slow exposure created an awesome effect of the bubbles rising to the surface. Great shot! - 8 - JB
