Nice composition and I like the low, side light on the shot it give a better 3D perspective to the now hard to find coke bottle. Wow ;-)

Cool shot, I like how you've captured the action. Sharp focus, non-distracting background.

Wow, cool looking. I'm going to have to go buy a pack of mentos now. Thanks.

Someone with way too much time on their hands but too funny. Nice light gradient and comp.

I've seen a lot of those videos with Coke and Mentos...some real crazy stuff. The technicals are absolutely perfect, but compositionally it's a bit static.

Maybe the whole bottle would have worked better...I think it's the crop and composition that is bothering me. I think the lighting could have been a little better also.

here it cums!!

Now you just have to explain it! :)

From some of the vids I have seen with this, I would imagin you could get a really unreal effect. This just looks like a foaming bottle to me. but it does have nice lighting and seperation.

Mentos, really??? nice shot!!
09/13/2006 02:59:42 PM
Okay, did you see this on mythbusters? I did and I thought it was so cool! Excellent photo, It could use more contrast though.

cute idea

Kitchen chemistry is how we all start out and some of us never get much better. Not a bad attempt there.

That reminds me --- I've been meaning to try this! ... I think you were successful at creating an interesting image here. The background is simple and professional while the coke has a nice warm color - strangely, it almost has lost its movement - looks sort of like a sculpture.

I actually tried to do this for this challenge. It didn't work.

Hehe, oldest trick in the book. Well done, cool how the Coca Cola logo shines through.

Mmmmmm, black cherry and vanilla. You're lucky I've got one in my fridge or I'd have to come after you for making me want it! ;-)

I like this photo a great deal. I think the lighting is awesome.

They did that on Mythbusters and then did some other stuff and Jamie had one shoot up over 30 feet. It was GREAT.

I thought about doing this one! Cool capture. How many times did you do it?

How many mentos? Only 2? You could have gotten a really high surge. My friends used a whole role and it must have gone at least 12 feet high.
