I'm no fan of this stuff, generally. That's not a reference to the 'seen before' thing, but the type of shiny designer photography. There are a couple of areas where it falls down, I think; firstly, there just isn't the punch of colour these things cry out for - here, they seem washed out, muted. Secondly, the fold line of your background seems out of place with the curves and graduations of the glass: if you could have held it so that it curved round, rather than folding ...

Hope you don't get too much flak for not being original, still a great shot - 8

Beautiful job with the lighting and the timing of the droplet. This shot is a nice personal "stamp" on a time tested DPC theme.

Awesome picture! i love the normal backround and how its bent, but the glass just tops it off! Great job!!!

off setting the glass could've added a bit more interest, 8

Sorry, but I abhor this combination of colors.

Have you been reading tutorials? I've seen this (type) of image several times on dpc and NO I don't get bored seeing them. Its blown out slightly bottom left and I wonder if the lighting should have been more behind the glass? Excellent version for the lines challenge.

My kind of image - well done! I like the horizontal line at the break between the horizontal and vertical - it provides depth. Perhaps it needs a little "lift", increased gamma and saturation?

aha! I KNEW someone would fit a wineglass into this challenge somehow...8
