Got the idea at work, since I work at a brewery. Got the beer from work, and used glasses I had lying around the house. This is my daily life: choosing which amomgst many beers I will taste. Gotta love it!

Shot in RAW mode using the 17-40 f/4 L USM @ 20mm. Developed at minus 1 exposure comp.

In PS7:

Once again, digital blending from single exposure. Lots of healing brush to clone out nasty reflections. Burned my face out of the image. Saturation, levels, contrast and brightness all around. Crop, resize, USM, border and save for web. Tried a BW version, but opted for the coloured one.

Hmmm, I'll have a beer with that? Excellent shot, great lighting and table reflection. It got high marks from me earlier in the week but I just had to comment on it. I also wanted to say that one thing distracted me from this shot, and that's the white turtle-neck sweater being worn by MR. Hands ;-), but still great shot.

I think I would have liked this better without the hands. Nice capture of the reflection on the table.

Super creative. Nice lighting. Sharp. I like the disembodied hands. My pick for 3rd place.
