I still have the full bottle of Absolut I bought a year ago for the last challenge. But sadly I didn't have as good an idea as my last photo. I bought the little bottles this time and this was the best I came up with. I think it's cute but not as good as my last entry. I know it's not in the typical orientation as a true Absolut ad but that didn't seem to matter much in the last challenge.

The large bottle is balanced on the small ones with no hidden strings......but it was wobbly and I had my nephew place it there and take his hands away for only a second, long enough to take the photo. I was sure it was going to roll off.

Cool, simple and creative. I think the light is a bit too harsh though, making the 'writing' on the bottles difficult, if not impossible to read.

I love the personification in this. It has a lot more dynamic than just a standard, center-composed, portrait. I love how you cleverly placed the complementing colors of the smaller bottles next to each other...that attention to detail is what makes an image like this so pleasing to view.

My top 5.
Very simple concept nicely executed with good back lighting.
The reflection is a bit blurry (probably a mirror and not plastic?) but that's about the only nit I can pick after staring at it for a while. Neat!

I like the spirit of this shot- very good feelings- just like the vodka will give you.

The title says it all. Clearly a ribbon here.
