Very cool image. Like a poster. I'm not sure why you're looking at my images or lighting setup when you can do this! :)

So crisp and sharp, love the shadows and the high contrast, a great abstract.

From the thumbnails, this was a standout! Looking the bigger version, it is clearly great! WOW! 10!

Great! The competing gradients on the surface and the droplets create an almost unnatural sense of depth.

so, the title makes absolutely no sense to me. but the image SINGS. Beautiful abstraction. The difficulty I always have with these sorts of images is choosing the crop--some elements are always severed, etc., and it is hard to find the right composition that brings some order out of the chaos. Obviously, this is not a problem you are afflicted with! Very well done. When the rules are no longer in the way, a subtle burn down of the bright elements in the lower right and upper left edge/corners might be worth a shot--keeping the brightest elements well within frame might be even better than this already is. 9

All you had to do was drag the slider on the Brightness/Contrast thingy and you would have had a high contrast picture here. It probably looks nicer like this, but what can you do?

Interesting effect. I think a border of some description might have added something here.

I don't see the soup tie-in, but a nice shot nonetheless. 7
