I like this shot and don't really mind the obvious oversaturation. The composition is a bit weird and I don't know if I would have preferred the can to be open.

Thanks for the feedback. Best of a bad bunch to be honest. It's something I've been meaning to revisit.

Another way to address the "I prefer the can to be open" question, is to take the shot lower so that the top of the can isn't visible. If you're using water, it might also make more sense to use a clear product, like Sprite or LaCroix, instead of Coke since it is a little disorienting to see a bunch of water on the outside of a Coke can instead of either ice or the Coke itself being poured out somehow. Minor personal opinion that the can should be completely vertical, too.

Sorry I missed this comment - thanks for taking the time to review. I shot it in a kitchen sink so I could use the stainless steel as a big reflector. I think you're right regards the liquid colour and angle.
