OMG, my first 7+ AND a blue ribbon.
What a way to wake up this morning.
Thank you all for your votes and the great comments.
It will take me a while to cool down from this excitement. May be a beer might help :)

The set up:
I used 2 difused continues light elevated over the bottle to the left and right (fill)and a flash light.
I did not want a hand to show in the picture, so my wife had to reverse the way to open the bottle, away from her.
I have to admit that the initial idea was to freeze the droplets coming out of the shaken - not stirred - bottle.
But after the second try, I realized that showing the motion had more impact. The 6th bottle showed the best result.

Thanks again of your overwhelming responses. It's a great community here at DPC!

Congrats on your blue! Very highly deserved and matches that rich background color perfectly :-) This has a lot of impact and could be a Bud advertisement. Wonderful work!

There's an overwhelming response becauuse it is an overwhelmingly AWESOME photo! Wow! This is absolutely perfect execution! What a refreshing, beautiful photo! Budweiser would do well to pay you big bucks for the right to use this in their advertising.

Congratulations on a MOST deserving #1 finish with this photo!

Excellent idea and execution. Very nice job, congrats on the blue! Hopefully you were able to have a couple brews during the shoot!

Very nice effect with the water, it´s what makes the shot as far as I am concerned, a bit bored with splash shot´s as they are so easy to do. Don´t really care for the light glare on the bottle wich can only be fixed with better lighting but other than that this image is spot on. Faved it, I want to try this water motion myself sometime.

Love this photo. Hate the beer.
you should market it this to Anheuser-Busch, tho. They'd probably wanna use it.
You should put it on YouTube and see how people react to it too.

Nice image. I would score this higher if there were some fill light to lessen the harsh light reflection on the bottle. I do like the little Psshhh near the bottle cap. Well done.
