This is perhaps another shoehorn, but it was the only sand I could find. I wish I lived closer to the beach. I actually did try to make drip castles with some playground sand, but I can assure you it didn't work like I remember from my summers at the beach. The color sand was found on the 75% off rack at the drugstore. Shot was taken on my back deck just past dusk, using a longish exposure and flash. Backdrop is my polar fleece vest and bottles were sitting on a recently purchased $2 yard sale mirror.

Neat idea, but way oversaturated.

Like the concept, the reds on the left are a little off IMO.

I love the bold colors and all the curves and diagonals. Lighting is a bit on the harsh side. Not sure where the green sand came from as it is not present in any of the jars :)

i really wish you would've cleaned up your sand spillage, I think this could've been a lot stronger without it. Alas, clever idea and great vibrant pop out colors.

Great colors. Love the bottle shapes. Not sure if it really needed to be boosted to such an extreme.
