Great originality - and those circles are traced with disturbing perfection... I assume you had containers of different sizes. But honestly, it's your comment that makes this photo for me. Setting this up must have been the ultimate in zen.

One thing that might improve it is, to emphasize the ripple effect (as opposed to a bunch of concentric circles), would be making the outer ripples shallower and shallower until they disappear into flatness.

Arrived at last. Top 20, and with a photo that I'm proud of. Thanks for all the great comments.

Love the picture, and your comment. I can imagine it can be very frustrating also!

I really like the textures and lines in the salt though I almost feel as if the image would be stronger without the green I'm not sure what it is, just my opinion, also I personally don't care for the black border with this image.

i like the cropping and setup of this shot (that must have taken some careful work!) the ridges work well here, and the lighting shows off the texture of the salt well. nice job!

very cool, wonder if you could have had some flying up somehow. Got a slight bump over on the left by the last ring but a great image with good lighting and white balance. Good luck.

Creative take on the splash concept. Good use of color and theme. Would like to see more texture in the salt.

You have a slight mound just left of the rings. It's quite noticable. But I still like it. I like the single color against the white. And you did a pretty good job with the rings.

Great concept very well executed. I don't know exactly what's that green thing in the middle, but I would have choose somthing else that is perfectly round though ... But still a great image !

Thats just too cool, 10

Definitely cool! Stark white interrupted with ripples and a chunk of vibrant green :D Love the off-centre orientation, lighting could be a bit softer as the rock is casting a very noticeable shadow.

i love the addition of i believe the green marachino cherry...it makes the detail of the sugar/salt pop

Very nice. LIke the side lighting to bring out the contours adn how level the rest of the salt is.

Very creative. I feel that it would have been better if it would have used one of the "normal" objects as the object dropped. You know, like a strawberry or piece of fruit. However, I like it as is. Good job.
