I was getting some decent drops in this session and forgot to keep the glass topped up hence the rim being visible.

I had a half hearted attempt at getting a red drop to sit on the top of the spout but ran out of time (and patience).

Thanks for all the comments folks and I never realized it was Yellow for Yellow ;)

Oh, the sound from so many drops is actually gaBloop ;)

I can't help but imagine the sound: "bloop". Or maybe more of a "blip". Of maybe better: "blottellop" for something so complex.

Good work! I have attempted this type of photo before so I know how difficult and frustrating it can be (and messy too!). So I really appreciate this is a very well executed photo and looks really great. Well done!

Greetings from the Critique Club!

OMG I had forgotten that this was a Minimal challenge...and you want me to critique a ribboning shot? *eyeroll* no pressure...;-)

All I can say is, really beautifully done. Difficult to capture a shot like this before everything (eggyolk?) splatters all over the place. Don't mind seeing the slightly oof rim of the glass, though the purists will object to it. Love the lighting - hard to believe this is a 1-second exposure but then yolk is pretty thick and goopy so I suppose it's not unrealistic. Obviously it worked very well, everything is tack sharp. Love the faintly bizarre greenish tinges in the membrane of the stretched-out yolk, it adds a surreal feel.

And you won a suitably yellow ribbon to go with it, so well done!

Hope this has been useful
