A simple splash made by dropping a strawberry into a bowl of milk. Lighting is a couple of flashes shooting into umbrellas on either side.

Photo is converted to BW in Lightroom and individual color channels adjusted, clarity increased, as well as WB.

Photo is then cropped and rotated 90 counterclockwise.

I'm sure this will score well. It looks like the strawberry already had a few trys!

I really feel the colours in this shot. This is my winner so far.

Beautifully captured. I would like to have seen more detail in the liquid, which I assume is milk. The strawberry is crisp and says RED.

Like the stopped action, and the square crop.

grrrrrrr..... I knew I would have to suffer through splash shots in this one... without the splash shot and just with those colours it would be a 9. but with the cliched splash....4
