I love action shots so when this challenge came up I knew I would be breaking a bunch of these to get a shot. In order to get a fast enough shutter speed I had to crank the ISO up higher than I normally feel comfortable which gave it a little noise on the reflection. Shot this outside on a piece of glass with a black sheet underneath.
Did a lot of PS work to get this to my liking
Adjusted Levels and Curves
D/B D/B and more D/B
cloned out a few stray pieces of glass
Neat Image to remove some noise

Got this on the second of 4 bulbs...I would have broken more but the hardware store was closed and walking around the house with flashlights for the night didn't seem like a great idea

Far superior to all the other broken bulb shots. I predict a ribbon! 10
