I used a pale yellow glass marble, the water is tap water with red and green food coloring. This gave me a dark yellow which lightened up fine when I flashed it.
Lit from the back left and the right front. I took hundreds of shots and got quite a few good images but (for me) this one had something special.
Johanna (21_N.gif tanguera) mentioned the reflection in the marble. To be honest, I was quite surprised myself when I saw the it. To me it looked like an angel holding up its wing or some continent on the globe(my imagination running away with me ;-) I assume it's the splash in the reflection...
Thanks for the great comments. Special thanks to Denis (21.gif phlover). You all made me glad I did enter this photo. After three votes I was sitting on a NINE, this has never happened to me before. The score took a while to settle down and has hovered around 7 for most of the week, which is fabulous!
Sitting on a 6.9 as I write. So happy!!
+++++++++++++++
Wow! Thanks for the ribbon.
Here's an outtake I found quite... interesting ;-)

Congratulations Irene. As always, you are amazing. I think you should consider writing a book or making a video tutorial for novices like me. I will be the first buyer of any such product from you... :) All the best...

Irene, Irene, you dont cease me to amaze me with these kind of shots...if you are not Irene, please dont be upset, take it as a good complement. I dont care about what anybody says about water shots. This is a such a awesome photo, the tones, the lighting, the composition, the sharpness, the concept, the relation between the tranquility of the liquid, the splash and the "earth" sinking in a sea of oil is beautifully conceived... Shold be the winner of this challenge in my opinion. 10
