This was my 3rd attempt to do a shot for this challenge. I first did a shot with a curling peel but it wasn't coming out good. I had seen a similar shot to this one in the original Apple challenge and liked the concept.

I setup and took about 40 shots using a marble to cause the splash, when I was reviewing the shots on my computer the splash was a very thin line going straight up and not at all what I was looking for. I realized that sphere would always give a splash like that so I decided to try again. This time I used a quarter. It took only 4 shots to get the one I wanted.

I'm beginning to think we should just rename this website to Liquid Photography Challenge.

This is such a smart idea, and so well executed. Love the contrast of the blue with the orange and the red. One of my favorites. This got to be Irene, otherwise take it as a HUGE complement. 10

I wonder.. You had to shake the set to get the splash? Nice thinking.
