In the hennessy photograph, it gives off this relaxed vibe. The background is a warm gradient color which again gives off a calm atmosphere. The drink itself is glowing due to the surreal sunset, displaying it as if the drink was a tropical beach of sorts. Like previously mentioned, this gives of a vibe of going to the beach, drinking and watching the sun set. What makes this image work is what I previously stated, it invites to people to have a drink. Like it’s saying this ‘the drink” you buy when you’re relaxing at the beach by yourself or with someone else. It’s simplistic and minimal, nothing too gaudy or over the top. Even with the inclusion of the sunset it doesn’t feel too much. Like mentioned before, it just presents itself as something you drink you’re chilling on a sunny day.
I think you clearly described the message of the photo: drink this and you will feel as if you are watching the sunset.
