|Made a mess,
I figured most entries would be still lifes, so I went "outside the box (of wine)"

I didn't break any glasses with this shot!
The cork is glued to the glass (was it that obvious?) and the liquid is actually grape soda. I painstakingly drilled a hole in the the base of the bottle, put a 1/8" slice of cork in the top to keep the soda in, and fed the grape soda in through the hole.
Oh, this is all vertical BTW, the glass was actually sideways, attached to a door. I rotated the image later.
I put air pressure to the hole which fired out the slice of cork (behind the wine glass), with my grape soda, and the "pop" fired my audio trigger to the flashes... (the cork is slightly "blurry" because it is obscured by the soda flying past...
I estimated the "wine" to be exiting the bottle at 250 ft/sec. With a 1/4000 max shutter speed on my camera, that would still be 3/4" of motion... I used 3 second shutter speed ;-) (PS my strobe fires at 1/20'000 sec.) The cork was not moving, at ALL ;-)...
Thank you for the comment and I hope you enjoyed my imagination (even a little :-)
