The white background may have let you down in this photograph. It helps to highlight the tones of the fingers and the contents of the glass but it has made parts of the flowing liquid and that great looking drip forming on the bottom of the glass partially invisible. Good use of a fast shutter speed; the flowing liquid looks real smooth. Good luck

This is awesome. Great simple shot but it's so clean and neat. The title is excellent and affects how I feel about the image. The drips of water coming off the bottom side o f the glass are cool and add a feeling of more action to the shot.

beautiful colors, and focus is spot on. the composition could have been stronger as right now there is a lot of empty white space that isnt serving any purpose in the image. 8

Nice use of negative space.
Very good tone & sharpness.
Only thing that throws my eye is the hue shift between what is in the glass and what is puring out.
A well-deserved ((7))
