We had a lot of fun (and a lot of mopping) doing this one with my son. I wouldn't be able to do it with out his help. Beside filling the glass with water, Peter helped me out with the whole set up and lighting.
After setting up the lights and everything we took 10 or 12 shots. This is the last one we took and Peter's favorite. Mine too :)
Must be my "glass period"... lol

Lighting info. Two flashes, was used to light the scene. An old SB-25 with blue gel behind the glass and one SB-800 with orange gel and a snoot, under the glass. SΒ-800 triggered by the camera and SB-25 by an optical slave trigger.

- Converted from RAW using RawShooter
- Curves, selective colors, USM, noise ninja, add border, save for web, using Photoshop

Some details could use a little retouch, but... it's basic.

Nice. I just wish there weren't all the puddles on the tabletop.

Very nice, but I'm seeing some definate pixellation in some of the drops. Oversharpened perhaps?
