This is really good. I don't dislike the background too much, but I agree with others who said a bigger saucer would have helped underneath.

The effect of a hole in milk is really good. I wonder if you could have made the milk look better if you had used cream or something a little heavier instead. There seems to be a lot of weird pink-orange colouring too. This is likely a byproduct of your main light source penetrating too far into the milk.

Nice splash but the penny is a little distracting

That's an impressive capture. However, the lighting of this scene has many problem: there's seems to be many strong light source that produce a lot of glare and it also produce a lot of shadow on the flying milk dropplets. that kind of scene requires diffuse lighting from at least two direction to cut down glare and shadow.

What an interesting image... the change in color of the milk is a little odd, but not in a bad way. I think it adds to the shot. I really lke this, the more I look at it.. very nice! :)

the splash is overdone, and not just in this challenge. interesting use of circular framing. 5

This is a creative photo but the penny distracts from the actual milk.

7 - Good shot. Like the title/concept. Criticism; either a different colored dish(?) or a different cropping, just the outer edge detracts in my opinion. If the 'dish edge' were a similar color to the coin, or even just a bigger dish (thus no 'edge' just milk) would have made this a better shot in my opinion.

This is great. And if only milk money was a penny, that would be even better.

I would have given you a 10, if it came up heads! :D

Nice shot. Great timing.

Wild. The milk is well frozen in space. That space around the penny is amazing. It actually is so amazing it makes the picture look "fake" (which I'm assuming it isn't). The rest of the picture is somewhat bland, but I give you big props for the capture. 9.

Nice change of pace from seeing a cookie or fruit being dropped into milk. I like the perspective and colors - how the penny compliments the plate (saucer) - but milk money is only a penny? :-)

a lot of splashy pics this challenge eh? another good one, but because they are all so good, that makes them be not so good by being common, you understand me? i shall give it a 7.

Clever! Boy that's a one in a million capture. I wish the penny were more focused, or maybe it's the glare off of it. Otherwise, I like this alot. 8

A penny for milk...not these days! Perhaps silver money would not have caused the brown color cast off on the milk.
