Inspiration from a bottle.. literally! Two thirds of the bottle of wine in the photo I came up with the idea after a few attempts of taking photos of the wine in the glass I was drinking.

Difficulties I came across was clearing enough of the kitchen to avoid distraction in the reflection of the bottle which acted like a fish eye essentially. I already spot one fault - the tripod. Its glaringly obvious. *shrugs*

I had fun taking the photo and I quite liked the idea.

Jason, I really think this is a strong shot, and very creative. I would have thought that this would have ranked higher. I wonder if some didn't look hard enough and missed the reflection.

The reflection is a good idea. Thhis DOF would work without it too.

This is a FANTASTIC picture! I love this type with wine bottles. At first glance it's a very refined picture wothry of being in a wine conniseur magazine. Then we see the reflection of the frat boy chugging another bottle of wine. This is so great! I hope you place! 10, ALL THE WAY!

I love the little "surprise" in this one. I wonder how many people will see it?

i would have really liked this better without the reflection.

Ah.......an Australian treasure. I find it interesting that your title is punctuated with an exclamation rather than a question. This makes sense, since the bottle appears empty of this delectable beverage. An exaggerated demand for more makes good sense. Oh, yea...and I did notice the reflection in the bottle. Very nice. Is the subject named "Jacob?"

I find the brightness of the background distracting.

heh, that's subtle. I'm afraid lots of people aren't gonna see it in the flash voting. Is that a washing machine in the background?!?
