I had three final shots that I went back and forth with when deciding which image to submit. It was a hard decision, but this ended up being the victor for a few reasons.

For this shot I wanted a kind of advertisement look. The set up was again, rather simple. I had a single SB-28 Speedlight setup to fire from directly above, and shot through a home made diffusion cube. It was fired with Pocket Wizards.

Oh this is unnerving, i hope your camera is weather proofed. I love that you used lighting to create a mood, not just to show off your fancy studio lighting like many of the photos in this challenge

Good thing this is weather sealed. This is one challenge where I'd like to see the stats on how Canon voters vote vs. how Nikon owners vote. A high, hopefully unbiased, score from me.

Very nice lighting, I like the water drops and cropping on this.

Oh, man--it is all wet, probably no good anymore: I'll take it off your hands for ten bucks (if you include the lens!)

Would have liked more DOF.
