Challenge: Got Milk? (Classic Editing)

Aperture: 4.9
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/500
Galleries: Macro, Action
Date Uploaded: Jan 18, 2003

I shot what seemed like a million pics until I had one that didn't need any cropping. The camera was set to shutter priority 1/500 and I used the on-camera flash. Desaturated all but the reds in the pic to give the half and half a really "white" feel.

great stop motion capture... a smaller apature setting might deepen the field of focus so the berry is a little clearer.. also backing up and getting a wider shot would be more dramatic

this is a powerful concept that definitely meets the challenge. the red works well here and i think your frame complements the photo well. composition-wise, this is also good, just enough visible of the strawberry so that the viewer can easily identify it. the strawberry looks a little grainy or out of focus to me though, and i'm not totally sure about the strong shadow from the light or flash. i guess you need some to be able to see the "splash" part, and i'm not sure how easy it would've been (if indeed possible) to tone the shadow down w/out loosing the visibility of the splash. good photo :)

Good splash shot. The burst of red colouring against the milk is lovely, and the shadows work well to define the splash against the background. Nice compostion.

Good splash althought the lighing is a bit uneven. Use more file size and the strawberry would be much sharper. You only used half of the 150 kb allowed.

Great job on a difficult shot. Love the cropping. Too bad you couldn't desaturate the orange a bit and just a tiny bit grainy in places.

Cute shot. I'd like to see more of the strawberry and splash. Seems a bit tighly cropped. I love th 'whitness' you were able to achieve. Might be able to reduce the shadow with more than one light source. Jacko.

with several people doing the splash thing, everything really needs to be very sharp and clear. Too soft on focus.

Great shot! Focus seems a little soft on the strawberry, but I can imagine that this must be a hrad shot to take! I like the use of colour on the border, which complements the picture.

Nice photo. But I've never been a fan of splash shots. Something about the shadow it casts. But this is one of the better ones in the challenge.

Good action shot. The contrasting colors work really well for this pic. My favorite so far. - Inspzil
