Fluid Breakfast

A cup of soy milk, a handful of blackberries and a handful of frozen cranberries, throw it in the blender and what do you get? A delicious, nutritious FLUID breakfast! If ya can't tell, we are big smoothie fans at my house.

I had a hard time deciding on which picture to post but decided on this one because it was a little bit more creative, I guess. I'll post the second picture just for kicks though.

What do you think...which one would you have posted for the challenge? How would you have made the pictures more visually interesting? I took these this morning and wasn't going to post them because I've seen the ROCKIN' pictures coming in and was a bit intimidated, BUT, I figured that's no way to learn ;). So, let me have it. CC PLEASE. Thanks you guys!

Oh forgot to mention, I was really experimenting with lighting in these pics. Just a side note :).

Hey girl! I love your pictures, I think I like the second one the best. I think it's because the smoothie is such a vivid color and the berries on top add even more of a pop of color. I really like it. I also like your DOF. I think they're both really good, the second one is just my favorite.

The first one I was thinking what the heck is that a huge frozen chunk. It made me look at it longer to try and figure it out. I didnt read the whole post before looking. anyway I see that it is from the bottom up through the blender at an interesting angle.

i love the bottom one cus it shows the drink and the fruit at the top. There are a lot of colors as well.

For me I think either one is great but I personally would go with the first one.

Blake said...

P.s. Both are great colors and great angles. I wish I could have taken those, you have good skills.

I have to agree with Candace and Blake, I really like your second one. You can definitely tell you were experimenting with lighting, the the entire set up of the glass, berries, and framign is great!

you NEVER disappoint me, B, NEVER EVER!!! I love your angles, you've got such a good eye-- gimme some dat skillz! I love them both (and I'm really really craving one now too) but the second one with the skewered berries makes my mouth WATER... both are really really fun to look at though, I'm glad you put them both up!!!

now off to Jamba I go!

I actually like the first one best- though they are both good! I like the angle and what you've chosen to include. Good job!

I'm havin' to vote for #2! I love the lighting, it makes the berries and the edge of the drink so crisp. Yummers!

I like the little bubbles in the first one, but the second is more appealing overall, especially with the stick bisecting the photo.

Have no idea what happened to my 1st comment on here...but just wanted to tell you (again) that I really really really like these pictures. They're so fresh...so colorful...just really crisp. The creativity is OFF DA CHARTS and I really like how you interpreted the challenge!
