Fill a bowl of water and spray a few water drops on the outside. Fill a glass of water and put a beer coaster on top, turn it upside down and place it in the bowl of water and take the beer coaster out. Lift the glass up out of the water and take the photo and catch a jelly like form of water pouring back into the bowl.

That was the easy part, the difficult part is having flashes from three sides and avoiding getting reflections in the glass bowl and the glass itself.

It seems like Rikki beat me by 0.006 or something so no tie :(

Clever gary! Very clever setup! I am still quite surprised that we tied ;) Great job and this challenge among all, gave me the jitters all week long ;) Thanks for pushing my patience to the max shooting the same shot over and over and over again ;)

Great colours and intriguing composition. I think I would prefer this if I could see either, or both of either the full bowl reflection or the whole of the glass, but I'm not sure. Neat work anyhow, and gets a high score from me.

Not sure how this was accomplished, but very very cool image. I think it could be even better without the reflection.

Love the blue colors against the white background. I also like the composition and action of the water flow.....
