Soooooooooooo well well well, where do I start? I did quiet alot outtakes for this usually I only take loads of shots last minute and bam submit it, this time I started very early in the week...
Started off with this:
2193710336_8ecb67e2ee_m.jpg
Then completly came off from there, I had never done the water refraction thing so I decided I could work on that see how it goes... started off pretty bad I would say hahahaha:

At first the yellows weren't coming out as I wanted so that has been tweaked on lightroom...:

But having the extra time allowed me to correct all the mistakes I could see on it, so here some other outtakes:

Finally here's the wonky original:

Didn't do alot of editing, just used the direct positive option on lightroom, cropped, unsharp mask and save for web!

I am very proud of this I am hoping for a 6+ score! OR ELSE!!!! ahahahaha =]

amazing crispness and overall quality

very good clarity, nice idea and composition, wonderful reflections.
Only the tones look mor green than yellow to me on my monitor

Why do these darn cliche shots always look so good?! :-) You pulled it off quite nicely (except for the minor dust/dirt in the reflections on table). Good luck in the challenge.

I like the use of the stripes to accentuate the refraction.

Sharp and clear, even if it is a cliche.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2008 04:18:05 PM
Though I have seen a lot of images like this here, the lighting and sharpness is awesome.

This subject is becoming a tad cliche, but this is very well done all the same. I like that each glass has its own thing going on. A seven for you.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2008 11:24:21 PM
Very cool use of repeating lines, color, reflection. Great form. The glasses are so shiny it makes me want to smudge them. :) Great shot!

01/16/2008 09:54:32 PM
Interesting with the varying water levels creating different patterns.

9 -- Love the reflection

01/16/2008 02:31:59 PM
I really want to not like this but I really love it! The lines and the refraction suck me in from both symmetries. Nice take on what I think is sometimes a cliche shot.
