Hi and thanks to all the comments. Out of luck this happened to be the first bulb i dropped. As some of you guessed it was dropped onto a mirror, i was trying to get the bulb to smash with the bayonet fixing also in the reflection to show it was a mirror. The bulb was white and the hue's were changed to give a blue look. On the original there was small bits of glass flying, i cloned these out as they were so small they looked more like dust particles. Cheers :-)

How many did you have to smash on the mirror before you got this one? Nice work!

Is the bulb actually blue, or is that a result of the lighting set-up? Good shot, well done

i've never tried to shoot a breaking bulb, and i'm not sure that i want to. it just looks like too much effort. good luck with yours.

Kudos to you if this motion was really stopped here. It appears that the bulb has been placed on a mirror. Unusual to see a bulb dropped and not have some pieces flying out a little. Hmmm. Will be interested to see how you did this after the challenge. Did you shift the color hue some to get the bulb greenish blue like that?

Very nice. Just nitpicking here, but a lower angle might be nice here.

i'm not seeing an implied sense of stopped motion

Un-original. Didn't bring anything new and exciting to the piece...

Cool Shot. I think if it were a fraction of a second later you'd have a much more impactful image.

this is a very striking shot; it particularly stood out from the other thumbnails... the luminosity of the bulb is one of the factors that give this the Wooooh factor that a lot of the other bulbs have - it almost looks like it has liquid within it. it's let down slightly by the harshness of the bayonette fitting at the top, but other than that, very effective and well done on the exquisite timing. 9.

great picture. but how did you get the bulb to look like that. almost seems like it was filled with something

This shot looks a little to set up, there is no glass flying,, I like glass flying... Good color and focus.
08/07/2006 09:29:07 AM
Wow! How did you do that?
08/07/2006 09:05:03 AM
The thumbnail looks great, well done.....
