Cool. I'm so glad you used fishing line. I thought you had.

It's perfect.

An excellent image Congratulations to you and your daughter
08/26/2009 02:01:13 PM
HAHA! It probably should have been "Toast McGoats". I'll have to do a better job researching the web next time. Not really sure what it even means!! ;)

Great shot. Very creative. Congrats on the ribbon!
08/26/2009 12:23:00 PM
love the idea in this one. you probably waited for the time it's done and pressed the shutter button :D

great work!

Great job! I thought it was "toats mcgoats" ... lol

Excellent shot, Chris. Big congratulations on your ribbon, well deserved.

Way to go! Congratulations.

Wow! Thanks for all the votes and comments!!!

The toast was held up by two pieces of fishing line by my daughter. After about 20 shots she told me her arms felt like they were about to fall off (thanks for all the hard work Kaylee!!) The lighting was from 2 Alienbees B800's on either side.

Good toast capture!
08/24/2009 02:49:54 PM
this is great!

Nice idea and well done. The toast seems a little overblown in the left. small, nit-picky thing: did you try from an angle more towards the front to add a little depth to the picture? 7

Perfect exposure, nice and sharp toast. Would had left the boarder out on this one imo. 7

Nicely done. Excellent composition. The lighting on the toaster is great, the toast seem a little washed out.
08/21/2009 02:07:28 PM
i think the toast would both fly in the same direction, the logic hurts my computer science mind, the trajectory is all off. Needs something added to the photo. 6

Nice shot of the toast flying out, great comp, 7.
08/20/2009 12:06:49 PM
You got here what most of the other entries do not: some nice interesting action. Very well done!
08/20/2009 10:06:53 AM
good jump!
08/19/2009 08:39:29 PM
This is a well executed shot: sharp, nice feeling of action, but it just seems to lack "punch." 7
08/19/2009 12:33:56 PM
Good job, I'm assuming the toast was held up by nylon lines? In my top 3.
08/19/2009 12:00:45 PM
good stock material.
08/19/2009 09:36:39 AM
Wonderful shot! 8
08/19/2009 06:28:37 AM
This is a great idea with great execution... good work
08/19/2009 04:20:30 AM
Great idea, but the whites are just too blown out, around the toast.
08/19/2009 03:55:13 AM
makes me hungry
08/19/2009 03:33:56 AM
a bit pale, seen before, 5
08/19/2009 02:17:18 AM
Great timing,
08/19/2009 12:58:18 AM
nice trick
08/19/2009 12:10:30 AM
Great shot - I have the same toaster and it too shoots the toast in the air some days
