Yes I know it's a cliche for this site, but it's something I haven't tried yet.

SB-800 pointing at the blue background.
Camera on tripod, prefocused, and held the glass in one hand.
Fill, shake, shoot and repeat. Stopping here and there to mop
the floor.

So that's it. Got this cliche out of my system. You won't see this again from me. Next time it will be completely different... I'll use a wine glass!

Ok. Admit it, you were just jumping up and down with glee to be able to do this setup weren't you? :D I have no idea if it fits James Bond or not, but it's certainly a well done "splash" type shot. Good luck.

Nice lighting & capture. I'd like to see the glass either tilted more so it looks intentional or leveled off.

Great!!! this is a shake without a stir.. Best with this caption
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/06/2006 08:42:15 PM
Superb capture. (However - and I am by no means an expert in alcholic drinks as I don't drink the stuff - but I always thought that it would be shaken in a special shaker before being poured in the glass. That would cut down a lot of wastage. ;-P )

lovely work, not sure about the fluidity of the drink, yet love "the moment" captured

Very nice stop-motion. Great clarity, the background is flawless, the dof, the sharpness, the composition. Great shot.

Ok, you have to prove me right here. I was just saying to my friend that if someone does a "splash" shot right they nearly always ribbon. He saw this splash shot and said, "this this will ribbon?" "Yeah," I said..."thats a ribbon." It's a good shot, don't get me wrong, it's just a little cliche around here. I sort of hope it's your first attempt at a splash shot and that you haven't ribboned before with splash shots. Good luck. I gave you a high score for good technicals!

Nice but the blowout at bottom is really distracting.

A pretty common DPC shot, but always neat to see one that's well done. I have yet to try one myself, but will have my day. ~9

By far the best of the "Martini Shots" in the challenge - and one of my top picks too...
I think it would be better without the burned out highlight in the bottom though.

Nice stop motion but I would have preferred the glass to be straight and level. . . .
