My boy had fun with this one. Not very often we get to smash cups against the ground and not get in trouble.

Thanks guys!! The ribbon really surprised me, sure wasn't expecting it. This turned out to be a lucky shot, I practiced with a tennis ball for a bit to get the timing down, and went through one cup and one ceramic angel before this one. This was the one and only cut that we filled with water, although we had a few more in reserve if needed (which my son subsequently smashed anyway - gotta love the dollar store). Shot outside with a flash on the left and a reflector on the right, with a black piece of paper for the background. Teh water inside the cup had red food coloring.

Enjoying being a part of the community, and love seeing everybody's work.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

Excellent interpretation of the challenge, especially as it ribboned, and thus is just that much harder to critique! Great classic studio shot, I admire how well you controlled the whites here and the sense of timing to capture it at just that critical moment of breakage before everything went all over the place is fantastic!

Very simple and effective in lighting and composition, and I too am curious as to how many mugs you and your son dropped :-)

Look forward to seeing more entries from you in the future, keep up the good work.
