Well, I know this is not going to do well. After I took the shot I noticed it was very grainy. The reason was because I by accident set the ISO to 1600. By the time I found it out it was too late to take another one. I decided to submit to see if anyone would give me suggestions on how to improve the composition etc.

this is a great fun shot, but technically is a little messy...the make up looks really obviously painted on, the focus is not really evident and the lighting is a little harsh...the thing I wonder is: if there was an explosion and her hair is all messed up, where is the mess? everything around her looks intact! extra points for effort, but you need to work on the technicalities 7

Great expression and the hair nails it. If some smoke were to coming off the reaction that would make it even better!

Fabulous! So funny! :)
This is very well thought out. Like the colors and the hair.
Great job!

mhmmm I didn't buy it. x3 A bit more make-up, and a tad applied to the hands might of given it that scientific feel. Nice try though. : D

cute idea but I think the smudges on the face should have been less defined, and perhaps some smoke or bubbling coming from the mixture.

would have worked if the hair and makeup were done better

this is funny. some smoke or something would really help it.

++ humour. I like the idea, could use something other than the hair to make it look like there's been a reaction.

THere's too much liquid in both the cup and the test tube to have caused that big of an explosion...

good idea, her fluid needs to be bubbling or producing fog though

I love the hair! It would have been nice to have a more white background

Love the hair. The the image is off timed. I am thinking what if you get more smeared makeup drop the stuff on the table (beaker and tube) and have her pulling up the goggles. Maybe even a little smoke somwhere. Now that gives good timing.

The lighting seems off, a little to harsh on the left. Would of looked cool with dry ice. Still nicely thought out.

Nice idea but too contrived when it comes to the makeup and assemblage of props. Also no smoke and splashes to indicate what had just happened.

Shot is set up, it's a shame about the shadows and a little smoke would have worked a treat

Well, extra points for making me laugh, would have loved to see it a bit more realistic though.
