Yippee!!!! THANKS for the ribbon, the helpful comments and the super score!!

I had started experimenting with these glasses for the Abstract challenge and (although I decided in the end they weren’t abstract enough) the placing of the glasses stayed in my mind, so I decided to photograph them again for this challenge adding some coloured liquid this time (which is tap water with orange food colouring).
Here’s the outtake from the Abstract challenge:

LOL... I've broken quite a few in the process as well, thankfully not these ones (which I also used in this photo).

Well done, I notice you advanced with camera's the same as me, 950, Fuji S2, D70, except I have the D200 and you now have the D700, which is on my next wish list.

Jason, it's not a mirror, it's the same sheet of opaque glass I've always used.
09/09/2008 12:35:33 PM
Beautiful, as always, and deserving of the blue! What do you use to get those great, clean reflections - they're perfect!

Irene Fun Facts #4: Chuck Norris' Sister

Legend has it Irene doesn't use a camera. She simply wills her photos and they appear.

Irene doesn't own a computer. She doesn't need one. After she has spawned her digital negatives into existence she simply applies a light roundhouse kick, which delivers them air mail to Langdon.

Irene is never asked for originals because to do so would mean instant death.

One time Irene turned back time just to see the big bang. Watching fireworks inspires her.

It's a little known secret that Irene's "4 + 2 + 4" holds the answer to the meaning of life, the universe and everything.

Irene accidently created life on this planet. While she was doing one of her water drop shots she accidently seeded the primordial soup with amino acids. After all it was an AA Challenge (yeah the challenge themes were lame back then too. :P)

Irene once said never to reveal she's actually Chuck Norris' sister to do otherwise would mean...

The light, the use of reflection, the colored liquid, the use of glass, it's Irene all over the place. Back to your usual standards of execution. Wow effect is kind of fading though.

Very well lit, well composed, nice use of reflections. I like he part where the stems cross - that alone would make a cool abstract.
