Super! You nailed the composition, focus, contrast and colors on that shot. But the photo is even better than just the technical aspects. It is a very appealing shot, and the flames centered in the glass enhance it's appeal. Well done!!!

Thanks guys. I like it a lot. I was pretty surprised it came out, to be honest. Usually with all of my shots there are things I like and things I don't like, but I'm pretty satisfied with this one except that it looks like I might have gotten some dirty fingerprints or something on the top edge of the glass there.

It took a few "takes" to get focus and flames in a way I liked, but other than that it was un-"staged." I had set my drink down and decided it looked too cool to not run into the car to get me camera.

I'm thinking of getting a print made--just not sure if "flaming beer mug" matches any sort of home decor.

Love the concept of this shot, but two things would make this a winner, okay three things...
1 Glass is not exactly "beer clean" I know, you're camping so the glassware may not be fresh from the washer (by the way, camping, glasses for your beverages?? That's some civilized camping)
2 Foam head -- nothing says tasty fresh beer than a creamy foam head
3 Condensation on the glass -- nothing says cool and refreshing than the water droplets on the glass.

So next time you are roughing it out in the woods, bring along some baking soda (to revive the head on the beer) and an atomizer with a mix of glycerine and water (to add the condensation). While your at it, maybe a four foot reflector to add some light to the left side of the glass and another overhead to bounce some light onto the creamy head. Now there is your shot...

Haha, in the interest of full disclosure the "campfire" was in the yard behind out cabin. Glass didn't seem that dirty until I got home and saw the images again . . . or maybe I was just very impatient and thirsty.
