Wonderfully executed - great sillhouette, drips off chin, and color in the drink. I imagine this was a challenge to capture to your satisfaction.

I like the silhouetted effect; the gradient blue is perfectly lovely and offsets well the warm amber liquid contained in the glass, that reappears trickling down the chin, adding movement to a generally still-looking picture, but only once the gaze has travelled its own way there.

Very good dynamics in this picture !

Nicely done - I love the drops dribbling off the chin! This is one instance where the title really nails it. Good job!

I know it was probably intentional, but I would have liked this much more (and I like it now) without the distractions under the chin.

I like the drops spilling from the chin. Gives the shot so much more drama...why is drinking so fast?

Love the concept, but not so keen on the dribble! I don't like it when people can't hold their drink :-) 6

Nice color contrast, framing, and use of silhouetting - and the clinging spill and drips make the image for me.

I think I would have preferred this without the dribbling! Still a very effective silhouette though.
