    good contrast on the green and red combination... otherwise nothing spectacular.

    Use one of those sprays for watering plants one.... spray until the droplets are off considerable size, then they will start to flow off.

    when you say these, you mean colour contrast? if this is what you mean, then look at the color wheel and you will see that red and green lie on opposite ends of the wheel. this is what i refer to as contrast.

    as for improvements, shot is well exposed and its sharp, at least on the beer can. but the theme of being hot is not captured by just the fact that the beer is placed on a red towel...

    perhaps explore into something real hot, playing with puns on the word hot... hot babe, fire, or you might put them both together... etc...

    when i say nothing spectacular, i mean to encourage you to shoot more adventurously... none the less, its a pleasing photograph.

    I agree 100% with this statement

    Somehow beer needs to be photographed with LOTS OF VERY BIG WATER DROPLETS to show you how cool and refreshing the beer is ...

    I would type more except that I need to get myself a beer now!

    maybe you can a side light at the logo to 'sell' the beer better?
