Beautiful colors, lighting, focus and composition!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/22/2002 10:59:24 PM
Cool colours! The composition is ok but because of the transparency it looks a bit crowded. The glass also seems to lack focus. And although you pretty much maxed out (148kB) the file size, I can make out some jpeg compression artifacts, e.g. on the writing of the right bottle.

A superb tabletop image. Very dramatic lighting ( you can\'t go wrong with red ), no disturbing highlights, perfect DOF and a lovely touch with the spiral reflection. Some folks might like a little motion/action in the shot. But I think the bold shapes simply stated will get you among the top 10 this week. Very professional image..8 bullwinkle

I don't know if you make them or drink them - but I do know this is the best photo here. Print it and frame it - a 10.

Cool colors
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/16/2002 04:59:55 PM
Here's a composition that would benefit from a little more symmetry. Shave just a fraction off the R side and shift the glass left. That nit aside, I'm impressed with your control of light and reflection. Glass is a tough subject.

few artifacts in the lettering--good image
