Every now and then I like to browse through the challenges of some of the great photogs on this site. I like to see the progression from ordinary submissions to ribbon winning submissions. It gives me a sense of reality in that we all started somewhere, and by learning everyday, our photos can become better and better.

Having said that, today I decided to browse through your submissions and BAM! my whole theory fly's out the window. A red in just your first submission. Only fitting. :)

Keep spitting out the winners. I enjoy looking.

Remarkable, it DOES look remarkably like one of mine. I love the subtlety of the single drop of red. Really feels violent.

Congrats IreneM. As I more or less said before, the way you froze the motion of the liquid is excellent, well done.

  Photographer found comment helpful.

another one with a 10 from me. I knew this would be a winner as soon as I voted! It has a "wow" factor about it :) But still, I still stick with my original comment about the cropping... there's just something about it that I cant figure out, lol.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/15/2006 12:08:01 AM

  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/14/2006 10:57:15 PM
nice action capture of the liquid, i think i would have liked this a little better if there was some broken glass on the table or falling.. but you may not have had the glass... anyway great job

Well done. My vote for the blue.

this is fantastic. The picture is so simplistic and yet there is so much going on.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/14/2006 09:29:02 PM
Great capture! Nitpick: horizon isn't level (oh gawd, oh no, not the horizon!) Nice tight crop - great lighting! 10

Good, but deja vu thousand times. 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/12/2006 04:20:00 PM
Great shot. Greaet exposure for the glasses. If it was leagal I would have tried to remove the drops that are already on the table/surface. Love the two colours of the fluid. Bumping up.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/12/2006 08:14:43 AM
Gosh you have put my entry to shame. Great sense of movement. It seems ever so slightly dark on my monitor, but maybe that was your intention. Either way I had to give 10.
