Or the Gin Djinn if you will.

This is by far the most complicated image I've ever created. Hopes aren't terribly high, and also hoping it doesn't get a validation request because sending in all the separate images will be a pain!

A couple comments about this but...the 'Watering can' thing is actually a martini shaker. A little too subtle I guess :D

This made me laugh. One thing that might have been cool with this would have been had the genie been coming out of a cocktail shaker. Small thing though that probably wouldn't have scored you any higher :-)
Congrats on the good finish!

I really like the set up and processing of this image. The blending and lighting are superb. The smoke and liquid look awesome.
With the positioning of the smoke under the model, it almost looks like a tutu at first glance (which may say more about me than the image), I wonder if perhaps a bit of shading or visible cloth around the torso might lessen this initial illusion.
The clarity of the glass and liquid is great, but the blending near the fingers looks a *bit* artificial. Perhaps some light contact shadows around the fingers would add a bit of realism. (I see the same issue at the bottom of the can. A contact shadow at the very bottom of the can would reduce the "floating" illusion it currently has.)
I realize this is not a photoshop contest, but I am only leaving such a huge comment because I think this blending and composition is already really good, and could benefit from these small changes. This got a high score from me and will likely be on the front page. Well done!

Very well done. The swirliness of the background artwork suits well.

This is well done, the photos are so cohesive to your title.. the ONLY thing that kinda bothers me is the background being so busy, otherwise Gret One

Do they come in the margarita variety? If so, where can I get one?

Great color, cool angle,and wonderful idea!The only thing I would change is to have him coming out of a drink shaker instead.
