May be you could include it in the 'abstract' category with some title like "used" or "empty" etc. Running for cover before samurai san comes with a whip !!
Shaju,
You missed one of the most different photographs you'd ever see . The cup was full and eventually got empty as time passed by :P. I knew, someone would ask me for a proof, so here it is ...

Default Macro?

A P&S gives so much more control in close up photography!
The below image has not been cropped at all, its straight out of camera.

Well, I end up shooting stuff that I drink. Here's something that I shot tonight. Now I am realizing why most photographers say it's all about light. This photograph has had the least processing ever from me (levels, curves and bit of sharpening, that's all). Can you guess what this is?

Strobist info:
One YN-460 from below aimed at the wall. Another YN-460 from camera left aimed at the wall.

Good try and pretty close. But it's not coke. We see a lot of ads of this particular drink . If it helps, it's a yellow wall. So you gotta figure out what + Yellow would give red?

The shot is perfect. Is it sprite / 7Up?
What is that container? Is that Pet bottle cut at the neck? Don't quite get it

Here you go Hellwrath... let me know if you like it.

The Official non-auto Image thread-img_3902.jpg

Did color correction of individual tones in Adobe Camera RAW - modified hue, luminance and saturation of warmer colors and blue.
then blended two pictures from camera RAW into PS - one for the sun and sky and one for the seawater with two different EV values.

Then did some color correction, applied HPF for the seawater, and then for the sun and nearby clouds. Darkened edges using lens vignetting. Enhanced sunlight reflection on the sea water a little bit. And yes, some NR on the darker areas of the sky, not affecting the brighter areas and sea.

@TG: Thanks!
You just invent new color tones in some of your images, and the one above is an example! Wonderful image.
