Now what Id like to know is Coke Zero. No calories, no sugar. So its colored water with some carbon dioxide. Is that bad for you? If so, how?

I have heard that people dont recommend drinking coke zero more than once or twice a month. Anything that is limited to that few times is no good in my book ever.

Venezuela has banned Coca Cola Zero due to the potential and unclear health problems.

I don't drink sweet stuff like Coca Cola (he, he, i'm from Malbecland) but the pick is a great pick. Love it.

sorry, i commented on the Bynx's comment, but not the photo.

I really like it for the message you are trying to convey. The coke can is subtle in the way that its out of the DOF, but the vivid color actually draws my attention the most.

i am in trouble i guess. i drink several coke zero's every day. lol. hasn't killed me yet.

for me, i am willing to bet that it is healthier than several grams of high fructose corn syrup such as drinking a regular coke.

anyways. back on topic. i really like this shot. its simple in design, but executed well. i like the depth of field here, the coke can is slightly out of focus but still legible.

my only problem is the color cast on the background. i would rather see pure white, or a more pleasing off-white.

i agree with Hards80. the background color is throwing me off, but i really like the composition.

I'll argue that the colour cast fits the message being conveyed. I think making you a bit queasy is the intent.

So I won't be looking at it again. I only drink one Coke Zero/day......unfortunately it's the 2 litre variety.
