I obviously wanted to go for a zero gravity,light weight feel for this photo. It isn't exactly what I pictured but considering the mess I made this is as good as it gets. I may try a reshoot in the future. The background is a photo of the Antennai galaxies taken with the Hubble
telescope. I printed it on four sheets of paper and glued them to a poster board.

Nice, but I think it would have more appeal if the soda was coming out of the can. Some cloning would do the trick.

I really like this picture. The stop motion of the liquid is great, but for me the background is what really makes this one pop. 9

Fabulous idea, perfectly executed.

This is one of my favorites in this entire challenge. Your DOF is perfect, you have a nice bokeh on the background, and the composition and lighting make this feel exactly like an advertisement. Great job! :)

Awesome capture!

This took a little effort to pull off I'd imagine. ;^) Sharp, well focused image with a easy to understand message. Only question I have is did you consider having the incoming liquid be behind the can? Perhaps that was tricky with getting good DOF...it's just that a little bit of the illusion is lost seeing the entire splash - viewer can tell it's coming from the right this way. Anyway. Very well done overall! Best of luck to you in the challenge.

Very nicely done... giving this a bump. The sharpness of the liquid is great! I guess the only weird thing to me is that the liquid doesn't look like it's coming from the can. It's just kinda mysteriously there. Know what I mean? Still a 9 for me.

very nice
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/05/2006 07:30:51 PM
very nice, but why is the cola not coming out of the box itself but being spilled at it? is someone vometing it back after they took a sip?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/05/2006 06:08:17 PM
Nice idea and well executed. I could see this as an ad for Coke. Only bad thing here is the background. Lot of oddball colors there, even though out of focus, that pull the eye away from the thing you are trying to sell. Good luck.

10/05/2006 12:22:00 PM
nicely done. would have liked the colors to pop on the can more

Very nice work. Nice DOF to display product promenantly. Comp lends itself to creative text placement. nIce lighting.
