You can choose your preferred layout of portrait or landscape but ensure your photo has:
- good lighting
- suitable framing
- the cocktail is in focus
- good presentation (styling, garnish, suitable glassware, etc.)
- is your own image (or you have written permission to use it)
Here are some examples of well thought out images which have all of the above.
Remember to leave adequate space around the drink and that your drink is in the center so it will display nicely as a thumbnail. If the photo of the drink is too close or not centered, the drink will be cropped out which will most likely result in less votes for your submission.
