Perfect! Could easily been an advertisement and it definitely makes me want a shot right now. It also reminds me of 20 years in Canada with nothing but good memories.

It's weird, the glass is perfectly clean but the ice cubes were reflecting in it making it a bit foggy, I have another shot with no ice in I will upload later.

Still happy with the result though!

Nice colors. I wonder if a polarizer could have made the glass look clearer without losing the reflection... I might have to experiment with that...

Good tones, lighting and composition--has a strong Ad feel. Fireplace in background truly helps this image.

The smudges and reflections on the glass diminish this image somewhat. Nice warm tones in the foreground are perfectly complemented by the background. Spot-on focus and vantage point. This would make a great ad.

It's a good image, but adding the border stripes at the top and bottom have combined with the dark area on the left to make it look like you've chopped off the border on the right

Good quality pic - I'm partial to the amber occasionally myself, especially by the fire... I can almost reach out and grab it... sigh

Great shot! In one out of the box way it does show the spirit of a country so I'm going with that :)
