Thanks heres another photo from the same night.
Australia
So hard to make the sky appear like the stars arent noise as thesky was so clear.
Was lots of fun trying to get 9 people to get the letters right.

Cool but where's the actual coke ( or empty coke in keeping with the caption)? Nice timing. This is a real production.
Thank you.
10/10/2006 11:05:10 AM
Very cool idea and well executed. I really like the starfield in the background. Its too bad the person making the O wasn't really looking anywhere.
10/10/2006 04:47:46 AM

This is real cool. I would definitely like to know the exposure settings. And I am sure that in advanced editing, you could have done much better with this image

10/09/2006 04:20:54 PM
very, very creative....are the people in the photo using glow sticks or twirling fire to make the letters?

Excellent idea and execution - you know who may be interested in the photo and idea IMO

10/07/2006 10:02:39 PM
you could ahve even done it...drink coke but that would have taken even more models....great idea though

Wow, that's cool.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Excellent image. I also love the sky with stars. although tighter crop at the bottom would have increased the impact. i like this nonetheless.

9: One of the best in the challenge. It's just a shame that the letters dont all have the same "feel" to them

Ingenious notion. Fun shot.

the two kids on the end must have been going nuts... they move their arms twice as fast as the ones on the left?
i like this one.

AWESOME!

I like this concept very much. I can picture this in flames or written in the sand with a coke logo off to one side. I might've requested a tighter crop to adjust the comp to be less centered besides what I've already mentioned. You get an "A" for effort as I can imagine how many takes this took.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/04/2006 10:28:36 AM
The image is great and creative. The one thing that I might have like to see is some placement of the product OR maybe the "Coke wave" beneath the fire letters to mimic the logo.

a winner here...congrats on a ribbon in advance

Great shot, even for the unique idea it becomes better. Next time do "Dr. Pepper" instead or how about an even longer name? Did you consider taking the shot from a lower angle? If you had placed the bottom of the letters right on the horizon .... could have been even more powerful, I think.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/04/2006 01:38:02 AM
Haha! This is great...my favourite so far! and it doesn't even show a drink. sweet :) Okay, it's not a great photo, kinda grainy...but the energy, the spontaneity, the creativity is worth a great score!

10/04/2006 01:34:57 AM
interesting! you should also compose the "DPC" letters ))
