Well done. I like this photo because, 1. the blue color, 2, the swirls in the glass, 3, the ice adds a nice touch. Next time, however, I would like to see the complete reflection. I think becuase that is missing that this photo couldve been so much better. Either way, its my favorite + highest rated of the challenge. 9. Good job!

Great image. Lots of interesting movement in the liquid. Kind of +/- as far as meeting the challenge.

I love the vibrant 'ice' blue tones in this shot. Very catching and attractive colors and the composition is simple and clean. Lighting is spot on. While the technicals of the shot are really great, the composition relies a little to heavily on the title to make a connection to a country. Without a recognizable liquor bottle or even a small flag to identify the country WITHIN the shot there is no way to identify this spirit with the country. While this is very definately on the high end of an above average shot that attention to detail WITHIN the shot (a small flag, a map of russia, or a liquor bottle with russia's name on it) to define the main subject would have placed it in the exceptional category (8-10 range).
