These are some of the glasses I've smashed for my high speed stuff. The shadows are unusual to say the least. Hope the voters think so too.

Post challenge:
Woohoo! Thanks for the votes and comments!
A few commented on the fact that the crop’s too tight. I couldn’t agree more and it really bothered me but the problem was the small piece of board I had to stand the glasses on. I wanted to use all six glasses and there just wasn’t enough room on the board to get more space around them.
I even ironed !! ;-) a white sheet to get more space but the overall look was nowhere near as good as the smooth surface of the board.

First, I have to apologize. I didn't stop and really look at this photo. I must have been tired cause all I saw were glasses and no shadows. Now...I can see that what I saw were the shadows... kinda like all that is between my ears....nothing but darkness.

Great shot!! Way to go!!!

This is a creative idea. Perhaps more negative space could enhance the image.

I ranked this the highest - for crispness, creativity and overall great shot. I love the broken glasses, the use of the lighting - great work
