I promise I won't try this again. Had to clone out gazillions of microscopic droplets (and their multiple reflections) - not to mention the myriads of lint (due to the electrostatic character of the acrylic glass surface. Hope it was worth the effort.

"clone out gazillions of microscopic droplets "!
I admire your patience.(thumb up)
If I have the same spirit, my entry in other challenge would be better.

Lovely, with the drop action a wonderful bonus

Great shot. Perfect work. 10

This should finish really high. It's one of the best product shots and you have a big water drop. Hard to compete with all of that!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/26/2010 11:16:45 PM
Beautiful! I wish the water drop was a tiny bit sharper--it was difficult to tell what it was at first.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I really love this shot. The product color and the background work very well together. The splash on the right is a very nice touch.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/26/2010 10:14:38 AM
One of my favorites of the bunch. Love everything about it, the colors, sharpness, the water, composition. Besides I wear this cologne. A winner definitely.

Cool splash there. The blue cast is nice too. (Bump)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/23/2010 03:33:14 PM
good choice of colors and gloss - i just wish the Bulgari was a bit more prominent - tipping the round object up a bit so we see the whole name.

One of the best in the challenge, great work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Looks like one of our pro members... just gorgeous, color, composition, clarity, splash - it's all there.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/22/2010 04:30:29 PM
would look great even without the water drop - 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/22/2010 02:04:19 PM
Nice composition but I'm not keen on the water splash or what appear to be softbox reflections.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/22/2010 12:10:32 PM
Amazing show of your lighting capabilities. That touch of water drop and the crown shape it makes, adds great value to the image. Hope this does well.

In my opinion, you could have cleaned the tiny droplets in the highlight areas.

Outstanding clarity in this shot. Front page material!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/22/2010 09:27:07 AM
wow this is really professional, did you just rip this out of beauty product catalogue ?. Bravo an eight from me
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/22/2010 07:16:39 AM
Sharpness, color and contrast are all spot-on. A lot of attention must have gone into those reflections!
Nice use of the water drop to add interest (hope you don't get slaughtered in voting because of it!).

Not 100% convinced by the composition of this shot. Had the potential to be a blue ribbon, but I put it equal second - 8.

I'm probably wrong, but I'm going to guess that this is Oliver's.

This is superb work and can go straight in any glossy magazine. Congrats on the ribbon already! 10!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/22/2010 05:32:54 AM
really nice, but the softboxes reflections distract quite a bit
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/22/2010 05:17:26 AM
Very nice! A few photos so far with the same theme (ie water drops on mirror finish). This is, however, one of the better ones as far as composition, focus, exposure etc. What pushes it above the rest is the subtle capture of the droplet crown. A fav & 9 from me - good luck!

03/22/2010 12:28:23 AM
excellent ! 9
