A Glass with water dyed purple with food color, set nicely on white backdrop in my newly made light tent, made some minor adjustments to the backdrop and the glass tipped over, After I cleaned the water off my camera and the carpeting below I looked inside the tent and this is what I saw, Figured what the heck and snapped a few shots, ended up with this one. perhaps it was fate and my first ribbon is on the way, or perhaps it was a higher force telling me it is time to steam clean the carpeting.

PP crop, slight color adjustment, contrast and levels, curves, reduced noise,cloned out a minor distraction, sharpened,resized, framed, saved.

LOL. Thanks for the great explanation!

One of my shots that people have tagged as a favorite was a complete throwaway - a lighting test for a challenge entry.

Go figure. :)

cool idea, something about the bottom of the glass doesn't look as good though, can't put my finger on what it is. I like the intensity of the liquid though.
