Very effective! There is a man in the moon after all, and he has a big head. :) (Sorry, I had to say it.)

I'm guessing you used a sponge to simulate the moon - good job

I really like the look and texture of this picture. It just screams "moonshot" at me, even before noticing the title. Nicely done.

Nice use of shadows (& what looks like a great pint of Guinness!)

Very clever shot. Excellent creativity. IMO it suffers a bit from the bright highlights in the upper right hand corner, but it is a minor complaint. 8.

Interesting idea .... I think if you had lit up the left part of the glass it would have been a nicer shot ... hmmmm maybe even on a glass table with light coming up thru the glass.

Love it, excellent light and texture, I can almost taste it...and we all thought the moon was made of cheese...and just one more little thing, THANK YOU for using the full 640 pixel dimension, I really wish everyone would...I could actually sit back in my chair to look at this...this was truly a sight for sore eyes. : }

Hopefully this is a Guinness? I'd hate to think I wanted to drink it only to find out it was something disgusting?? ;-)

not center (bottom more)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/06/2005 06:43:23 PM
At first I thought this was a cookie and I thought ... YUM!

Then I realized it was foam, no less yummy.

The colors and direction light are wonderfully accomplished for such an everyday subject.

The centered composition is balanced by the off-centered lighting and full-black background. 9

When viewing thumbnail, I really thought it was the moon, so kudos there....
Now that I see the larger version, I am very happy with the cleverness

That's neat. It does look like the moon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/06/2005 02:28:40 AM
This was a weel thought of idea and title, put a smile on my face.

Wow! Root beer (or ale?) never looked so good. The use of shadow and lighting is excellent!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/06/2005 02:13:24 AM
Looks a bit carbonated to me...LOL. No, I like the originality of this shot. Extra points for that. You did well with the lighting and it DOES look a little like a moon shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/06/2005 12:35:33 AM
If this is a beer, I give it a high score. If it's a soft drink or milks hake, not so high :P Seriously, nice use of lighting and a creative way of finding circles. Very nice!
