this is extremely awesome ( imagining the glass with juice smashing onto the ground in slow motion) and its so true, you dont know what you have untill its gone.

Thanks for all of those great comments. I will make a How'd They Do That Soon. But here are some informations about the shot:

1. Took it in my backyard.
2. The only light I used was the sun.
3. My mom dropped the glass for me :)
4. The background is just white paper.
5. I broke 3 glasses.
6. The shot I used is take number 2.
7. I used my 75-300mm lense so I wouldn't get wet.
8. My backyard was a mess after the shots.
9. It's actually not wine. It's raspberry juice.
10. Nobody got hurt while shooting.

Here is take number 3:

If you have any more questions don't be afraid to ask.

I think the image seems slightly oversharpened, but it is still a very very good picture, fully deserving of its ribbon. Good work!

Excellent capture of the liquid and glass motion!!! Well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/13/2003 07:24:31 PM
How many glasses did you have to break to get this one? I would have cropped the image slightly on the left to give more impact. Otherwise well done, 8.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/13/2003 12:15:41 AM
Did you get it on the first shot?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2003 07:53:02 PM
Góð mynd, hefði þó viljað sjá þetta sekúndubroti fyrr, svo það sæist hverskonar glas væri að brotna, en þrátt fyrir það glæsileg mynd
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2003 05:48:41 PM
Beautifully captured and the abstract shapes of the liquid are wonderful - but overall composition of the image isn't as striking as the content, for me.

05/12/2003 08:50:35 AM
I had a similar idea, but I thought it was too difficult to shot by myself. Great timing. I hope you didn't need too many takes.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/11/2003 08:52:49 PM
Flott mynd!

A technical feat and a lot of clean-up i bet. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/11/2003 10:51:22 AM
excellent action capture :) i'm afraid to try something like this on my own... lol... good work :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/10/2003 10:33:08 PM
Awesome! brilliant composition, focus, and colors. One of my favorites! honestly, cannot thing of a single thing that would improve this photo - you did an outstanding job:)

I always wanted to try something like this but didn't want to clean up the mess. Nice capture. 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like this, after looking at all the other 1000 varieties of wine glass pics in this contest this kind of sums at my feelings
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/10/2003 08:30:49 AM
This must have been a difficult shot. Patience has it's rewards. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/10/2003 06:27:44 AM
The first I've commented on so far this week and the one that DESERVES to come FIRST.

Definitely an image with the sought-after "Wow" factor - as "WOW !!!" is exactly what involuntarily issued from me immediately upon seeing this extraordinarily striking picture.

There was a "fleet"ing moment when I thought it was a model ship - such was the impact of its shape.

What is it ? How did you do it ?

IT'S FANTASTIC !!

Great good luck to you for your final placing ! Er....10 !
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/10/2003 04:34:04 AM
Very dramatic. Perhaps the title could have suited the mood a bit better, and I am curious as to what the event looked like at an earlier moment.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2003 08:57:48 PM
Great work, my pick of the week - 9 - Morgan
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2003 05:15:27 PM
OMG, did you do this in one take?? What an amazing shot! Excellent.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2003 04:34:34 PM
Awesome action! I love the colors, too!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2003 03:43:45 PM
I hope you were lucky with this shot because it must have taken MANY takes. Good job. No, no....Excellent Job! - 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2003 11:46:05 AM
Very good. I don't understand the title, but I like the picture alot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2003 10:40:11 AM
This one takes the cake for me! My absolute favorite! A for-sure WINNER in my book.

Interesting stop action here! Nice lighting makes this work well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2003 04:46:54 AM
Oh my god !! How do you make it? How many attempts had made before to get this best shoot? gosh..hardly believe ... 8 ^0^
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/08/2003 07:18:09 PM
My favorite....I hope you post some outtakes of this...some that show the background.....10

Þetta er náttúrulega bara tær snilld. Það eina sem má gagnrýna er að menn afhjúpi myndir sínar á netinu áður en kosningu er lokið. En þetta er 10 samt.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/08/2003 08:26:39 AM
Perfect capture you can be proud of this shot - 10!

Þú rokkar
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/07/2003 05:12:56 PM
Great action shot. Hopefully you didn't have to try it too many times to capture the shot. I like how more of the glass ended up to the left, and more liquid to the right.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/07/2003 01:55:11 PM
wow. awesome photo. hope you didn't have too many takes for this one. please make more mistakes next time so i will find something constructive to say ;-) oh yeah, maybe if you boosted the saturation a bit the red would have come out a little brighter which against the strong white exposure might have given the photo a little more zing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/07/2003 12:56:45 PM
Cool! Great effect! I wonder how many takes it took. If I could give any criticism it would be that more DOF would have been nice..... but I guess with capturing the action that may not have been possible... certainly one of my faves! Good Luck, Todd.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/07/2003 12:03:36 PM
I would love to know how you achieved such a good shadow and what you used for your background. excellent!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/07/2003 11:18:06 AM
What a mess to clean up...lol. You were brave but this is a very good shot. Focus and contrast could be a little better, but a 6 from me nevertheless.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/07/2003 09:47:14 AM
How many messes did you make before you snapped this puppy? Great idea, nice shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/07/2003 08:11:04 AM
Good catch. How many times did you try before you succeeded?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/07/2003 07:17:39 AM
Great freeze frame, how many shots?....

05/07/2003 03:02:39 AM
undoubtedly the best in this challenge. i wouldn't know how many glasses you must have broken for this , but definitely it has paid off! a full 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/07/2003 02:54:09 AM
I figured someone would do this kind of pic...I didn't trust myself to time it well enough. it could take a lot of glasses. you did it well though. nice job...lots of cropping?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/07/2003 01:34:08 AM
Wow! don't have to say anything on this image. Motion capture and lighting are well executed. Just wonder how many glasses you've broken.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/07/2003 01:17:54 AM
Definitely!!!........definitely the best shot this week!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/07/2003 12:45:44 AM
