I originally was trying to from a car-key into this along with the "blood" for an obvious metaphor but I felt it was too forced and corny. I liked the clarity and simplicity of this. Food coloring looks better with little or no blur so hopefully people can tell it's moving.

Crop/rotate, selective desat, a bit of cloning, noise ninja, save for web.

When I saw this, I wondered if it was going to be another one of Irene's beautiful ribbon winners. It is flawless! Congratulations on perfect execution and an awesome photo!

Nice concept. I like the swirls.

Definitely different. Great shot.

oh my gosh oh my gosh!!! your lighting is awesome and i LOVEEE that you turned the picture upsidedown. It completely changes the perspective and makes it different from all the other collored water in a glass shots there are out there. clever title as well

I am quite tired of this sort of shot here, but at least this met the challenge.

very cool.

The glass looks great. It kind of does look like a mushroom cloud.

This is awesome

well done!

Great idea. No doubt it would have taken a lot to make this work while including the rim of the glass, but it does look a bit truncated without it.

Simple but oh so elegant! <3

I think this is a great idea. The lighting on the left side of the glass is especially nice (what did you use?). Anyway, I would love to have seen something in the background to accent the scene and bring it together... maybe a bright red flower? Just me... the symplicity is nice too, but it feels like something is missing. I still think its a great original idea.
