Not happy with the soft focus at the top of the bottle and the fragments are not as sharp as I had expected them to be but not completely displeased with it either.

I wasn't sure if I wanted to upload this or not but I've been at this for about two hours so I might as well get some C&C out of it. :)

High speed sync with 580EX bouncing off ceiling, 430EX back left with a reflector on the opposite side. I processed from raw, fixed saturation levels and cropped in PS, then I ran it through neat image to clean and sharpen it a bit.

This is a nice representation of the resolution. Only thing is I with for more dramatic lighting. The lighting here is kind of flat and un-inter4esting.

Good idea, I like the DOF and how you captured the fragments, quite effective. I would have perhaps found it even more effective if the bottled was tilted further, 45 deg or thereabout. I find that it would give more impact as that's how it would tend to land if thrown on an impulse rather than dropped. Then I understand that there are just so much bottles available to smash :)
