Howzat guys,

Thanks for all the comments!

Truth be told, I only had the 18-55mm lens, so I had to get really really close to the action.

My first few attempts left everything full of oil (luckily I have a UV filter), and I also burnt my head quite a bit!

:)

After a few rounds, It was just too dark, so I moved the elctric pan outside into the sun, and shot it there. This time round, however, I used a plastic bag around my camera, leaving only the UV filter exposed.

Still, couldn't use a tripod as I had to get very close, and I also had a lot of burning oil all over my face which wasn't particularly pleasant.

I wanted to submit this one, But the popcorn wasnt completely in focus, unfortunately.

Popcorn2

I agree with the comments that it wasnt the best crop, and it was a bit of a pity that the one that did pop, was out of frame, but after being covered in oil, and having a brand new 350D that smelt like a fish and chips shop - I had to throw in the towel.

:)

wow, it was brave of you to put your camera so close to spattering oil...
I'd have liked to see somewhat better definition of the shadows and less flatness in the highlights.

Good idea but too tight! You freeze the splatter but the corn is out of frame. Pity.

7 - Good effort, good shot for the Challenge. Criticism; camera/lens dependent, more focus. Different crop may have also made this better in my opinion. Good idea.
