Well I wonder if I will get dinged on the noise, but its pretty much unavoidable: 80k volts + 1 inch to digital camera + 60 seconds exposure = noise

This just proves as time and time again, it's not the equipment but the photographer that matters most.

I made a comment on the second placegetter, something like "I know this photo did not show up when I was doing my voting" and the same goes for you photo, else I would have given it a vote. Thirdplacegetters did show up though, and I did vote for it. Anyway great shot, you should be proud of yourself, well done.

What a stunning shot! What I want to know is at what end the 80kV was applied, on the fork or on the base? And where did you get 80kV from anyway?!

And who says Olympus and it's owner can't do some amazing work?
Congrats on your blue and this is really a neat image. I hadn't looked at the macro challenge so I just now saw this.

With creativity like that, the Contest had to "fork over" the blue ribbon. Thanks for the education, too. It's nice to know how to compose a similar photograph.

Great colors. Sinister look.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/01/2006 08:37:17 PM
In my view, this is not the best shot in the challenge, and it doesn't meet the challenge very well in the sense of not being recognizeable. However, it is the coolest idea in the challenge, with no close competition, and is well executed! I gave it a 10 and I hope it ribbons!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/01/2006 09:27:11 AM
Magical photo. This is going to up in the ribbons...

03/30/2006 04:03:09 PM
a fork, right? i had to look at it for a while to figure it out. cool picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/30/2006 07:35:38 AM
Is that electricity running up to the forks??? If so, I just have to know how you did that :D. Great pic btw
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/30/2006 07:12:47 AM

  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/29/2006 10:50:48 PM
wow. what the hell is that? that's really cool and original.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/29/2006 06:47:59 PM
Ok, it's a fork with water drops but I have no idea how you made the streams of light. Very cool!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/29/2006 05:57:40 PM
Very unique. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/29/2006 05:40:50 PM
Curious how you shot this. Good take to the challenge. At first it didn't look like a fork to me. I still don't know what that spraying is.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/29/2006 12:28:10 PM
10 - Awesome photo!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/29/2006 11:50:13 AM
howww did you do that??!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/29/2006 11:26:25 AM
First glance: It's a fork.
Really neat effect though. Could probably live with less fork in the image as it's a bit overpowering, in the top half of the shot especially.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/29/2006 03:24:58 AM
Awesome shote - love the lighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/29/2006 01:10:32 AM

  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/29/2006 01:05:21 AM
I wish the image were closer to the sparks!!!! 9
can't wait for the "how-to" on this one :)
