Congratulations on the Ribbon! VERY cool shot!
03/07/2007 05:42:16 PM
Congrats! Now if you stop using yellow/orange you might win a ribbon other than yellow. :P
03/07/2007 02:00:20 PM
Very Clean shot. Congrats on your ribbon.

Lowered the score b/c the table looked curved?

Excellent capture. However, something odd stands out to the point where I can't vote a little higher. The issue is that the table's edge is not horizontal. It actually looks curved. Is the table (or whatever surface) not level? Or is there some lens aberration happening?
03/07/2007 12:37:45 PM
congrats on the ribbon.... the border really adds to it
03/07/2007 10:48:52 AM
Congrats, a really great capture.
Just wondering how many 'takes'you shot.
03/07/2007 07:20:53 AM
Awesome!! Congrats!!
03/07/2007 03:28:40 AM
Congrats on your yellow! Excellent work!
03/07/2007 03:24:24 AM
Gorgeous colours, great shot. Congratulations on the yellow.
03/07/2007 03:15:16 AM
Congrats on the ribbon, great shot
03/07/2007 02:44:06 AM

SplishSplash! Had to be bunches of 'em, and yours is the class of the bunch, crisp and clean and icy-refreshing. Congrats!
03/07/2007 01:43:24 AM
wow!!! a ribbon! thankyou all for you ratings and comments
03/07/2007 12:34:10 AM
This is about as good as it gets. Tack sharp focus and perfect lighting, congrats on third.
03/07/2007 12:33:59 AM
The yellow liquid is a bit odd.. but it does match the ribbon ;P Congrats!

Nice colors and execution. I like the crop, and at the same time seeing more of the splash at the time wouldn't hurt. Either way, it's very nice.
03/06/2007 11:54:15 AM
this is a neat effect. i love how clear everything is. nice composition.
03/06/2007 08:15:41 AM
very clean clear shot. good work.
03/06/2007 07:54:19 AM
I like it a lot! But if the water was a different color, it could give the shot a colder tone, hence ice, rather than the warm tone of amber.
03/06/2007 12:26:50 AM
Not my taste, but great capture.
03/04/2007 09:42:35 PM
is the base leveled with the background or is that some barrel distortion going on there?
either way i predict this will be in the top 3, the rest of the photos look like shit compared to this one (so far from what i've seen)
03/04/2007 08:27:51 PM
great lighting and excellent timing...smoothe image...crisp, well done and good luck
03/04/2007 04:24:49 PM
Wow ehat a razor sharp image. Great.
03/04/2007 12:14:22 PM
great shot, a solid nine i wonder when over can you let me know the set up for this?
03/04/2007 09:23:07 AM
I like this photo. A couple of dust speds to the left of the glass though. Good job.
03/03/2007 02:48:10 PM
Wow! Very nice. I love the contrast of the background and the liquid
03/03/2007 01:30:04 AM
Fantastic action shot and love the lighting
03/02/2007 05:06:21 PM
This is a GREAT shot in most every way...but the focus is not quite about the ice as much as it's about the glass itself
03/02/2007 01:06:16 PM
i know people are all anti-splash shots this week, but i think this is well-done.
03/02/2007 11:38:16 AM
This is great composition and i like the reflection in the table.
03/01/2007 09:47:11 PM
what type of lighting did you use to get it so crisp and how did you do the background?
03/01/2007 05:32:19 PM
only a couple of ice cubes on the floor would have had much more impact than this busy/cluttered composition. i like the shot nonetheless.
03/01/2007 04:26:45 PM
Awesome - Ribboner, for sure...
03/01/2007 01:31:20 PM
03/01/2007 11:47:25 AM
i like the colour contrast
03/01/2007 11:21:41 AM
great set-up and execution
03/01/2007 08:06:28 AM
Perfect splash
03/01/2007 05:58:25 AM
well captured. i always miss the splash when i try to take one similar.

Great shot! Very good setup!
02/28/2007 11:16:29 PM
Awesome set up here, that works a treat IMO.....
02/28/2007 05:56:24 PM
Does not appear to honor winter.
02/28/2007 02:50:49 PM
When done to perfection, this idea never gets old --
This is a great photo-- good luck
02/28/2007 11:56:21 AM
OK, this is the shot I WANTED to take. Great job. I'm jealous.
02/28/2007 11:13:52 AM
that's neat how you caught the splash in mid air but I've seen this before though it's nice and focused. I like it
02/28/2007 07:58:24 AM
a bit tightly cropped at the top, otherwise very well composed and captured. good choice of surface, background and color of liquid. one of my top picks.
02/28/2007 04:30:26 AM
oh adorable. but i think that's alcohol abuse.
