Large Argentine shrimp, dropped down. high speed photo with backlight flash and LED light under

Happy this got a ribbon. I didn't expect it after my score was going down in the last days.
About the picture: I will NEVER do a shot like that again.
What a mess!! It smells bad, it splashes everywhere. and even after cleaning everything I still have shrimp flavor on my flashlight.
I tried to use uncooked shrimps first..... good advice, DON'T.
after cooking some of those giant shrimps, my wife was wondering why I threw them down. I wanted to have the juice coming out of the head. Then I just severed the heads and dropped them down, flashlight under and behind and 2 LED boards on the side. The result was not too bad. finding a shot with a good angle and done.

Great lighting and great shot- and if this was smelly, imagine Jeff's Lady Gaga human shrimp cocktail shot...

Hahaha, love your notes (btw, you can put them under the photo by clicking on the "Edit the details of the image" link.

It always seems like some of our more brilliant ideas leave behind some stinky reminder, LOL

I was thinking that I wanted the shrimp for lunch! But then I read the comments... Maybe I'll pass... :)

Congrats on the red!
