Trying to get a drop of water isn't as easy as I thought. Gave up right after I got this one. Colorized in psp.

And your ribbon preference is?

Shame about the slight linear reflections (damn editing rules). Lovely clarity and capture.

Nice thought and very nice execution. Good work!

Very excellent. The lightness of the ripple around the clear drop really pulls it away from the darkness of the background, divides the two perfectly and really makes the title fit. Definately should be in the top 5 of this challenge. Nice shooting, and a well deserved 10.

Gorgeous image. Beautiful clear tones. I expect it's the ripple but the gradient looks a llittle rough and is mildly distracting. Good job on the lighting - I'd like to know how you lit this shot and positioned your camera to take it. -9

That is awesome!

Well executed, but surely old hat by now. Check out Dr Harold (Doc) Edgerton's work, if you don't already know it of course.

Haven't heard of this book but that is a great picture. How did you do it?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2003 08:37:13 PM
Decent and reasonably tricky. And I do like the book- is this the secret to a good Mole sauce?

One of the best images around. Very nice capture. 10

Good one. A little sad it seems like we see the spotlight around the waterdrop. 7

clear chocolate, intreresting. Does it taste as good.. Nice shot though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Interesting color and composition. Well done water drop splash. Color and lighting excellent. Placing the drop on a ROT intersection point might even be more effective.

nice capture
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2003 10:22:38 AM
awesome!!! Only critism IMO is the lighting - i wish it weren't so dark on the right side and the would like to see a tighter crop. 8

Stunning shot.

I can't wait to see details on this.

a perfect 10

Nice!

11/13/2003 09:51:05 PM
Original idea! your photo does meet the challenge quite well. I personnaly would've cropped it either dead center or using the rule of 3rds. That rule does'nt apply to all shots but ones with lotsa clean negative space... it's more pleasing to the eye. 7

great drop shot...well captured
  Photographer found comment helpful.

never read the book but the movie is one of my favourites. Great shot to match the title
  Photographer found comment helpful.

beautiful water splash shot, very clean and sharp.
But what I think makes the shot perfect is your unusual color choice here,
works great :) 10

Very imaginiative. Great shot. Did you try it the other way as well?

  Photographer found comment helpful.

I got this title right away, very good. I like the composition and form of the "drop". 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/12/2003 10:08:48 AM
Nice corona! But the drop is water or chocolate?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/12/2003 09:35:56 AM
Great picture... and fantastic book... 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/12/2003 12:10:15 AM
Beautiful! I actually had the same idea for a title, though my execution would've been completely different if I had gone through with it. Yours is stunningly sharp.
