Challenge: Beverages (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Canon EOS-350D Rebel XT
Lens: Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 USM
Location: My Kitchen
Date: Sep 24, 2005
Aperture: F/6.3
ISO: 400
Shutter: 1/200
Galleries: Action, Food and Drink
Date Uploaded: Sep 24, 2005

Held shutter release in left hand, ice cube in the other. Lots of paper towels nearby. Took many attempts to get the timing right, along with a "pleasing" splash.

I'm sure there will be other similar submissions, but I've always wanted to try a stop-action shot like this. The beverage competition seemed like a good enough reason to try it.

I would have given this a 10, but I didn't like the wood table and background. This would have been an incredible shot at your local bar. :)

Nice shot. Your timing was perfect! Love the colors and the lines on the table are a great accent. Just curious, how many times did it take to get the splash this great? I'll have to look you up for that answer when voting is done.

Excellent splash and some very good detailed lighting/shadow in the glass base and stem. I think the background and choice of table top that was used doesn't work for this image.

if only the background was not so drab

nice job on the splash - i like the red -- don't like the table and wall -- somehow creating a background with a single color (white tablecloth maybe?) would really help IMO

Don't like the table. Not to mention the drops of red on the table from the splash.

Great idea. I do not like the table, the wrinkled background though.

Nice capture! Too bad the wrinkles on the backdrop are visible. I also would have preferred a solid blue table to match the wall.

would've be nice with the right set up

I would have used a white tablecloth or cropped out the table.

The background is too plain for such a bright subject, otherwise this would be a 9 in my book. Nice capture on the flying liquid.

This is a good picture. I like how you have a clean background. The red is nice. Anyways, good luck in the challenge. 10.

best splash I've seen so far.

I love everything about this picture except for the table. In fact you could crop the table out and it would be perfect!

not bad, i know the table must be oval or round but it is distracting

Nicely done.

The wooden table takes away and is distracting. The effect would have been better had the background been solid. Great capture on the splash tho.

Very nice colors. IMHO, the table detracts a bit from the composition.
