Nice stop-action.

It's a bit fuzzy, would pop more if it were sharper, but it's a great capture of motion and I'm sure it was hard to do.
03/17/2009 10:26:27 AM
Good capture. The score would be higher if more of the water was in focus.
03/17/2009 06:32:39 AM
Lovely stock photo type image. Well executed.
03/16/2009 09:37:01 PM
picture looks a bit noisy
03/16/2009 05:45:52 PM
Nice stop motion... though there seems to be some noise in the b/g.
03/16/2009 04:29:08 PM
interesting how the pip got to the bottom first.....
03/16/2009 01:20:50 PM
Very nice, good capture. Could do without the stone in the bottom of the glass
03/16/2009 11:40:12 AM
too noisy for my taste, just five sorry ;D
03/16/2009 02:56:48 AM
Awesome capture and presentation. Gorgeous.
03/15/2009 10:10:03 PM
Nice splash.
03/15/2009 07:58:21 PM
nice splash
03/15/2009 07:05:47 AM
should have been whiskey ;-) the image is a bit too griny
03/14/2009 11:20:02 PM
good dof,
03/14/2009 08:12:02 PM
Good stopped action but too much noise in the background.
03/14/2009 05:26:52 PM
A good splash photo but it looks really grainy.
03/14/2009 11:55:11 AM
ya and what else?
03/14/2009 11:03:45 AM
The photo looks a little noisy overall.
03/14/2009 09:46:31 AM
Nice action shot. The composition is good, since it includes the splash.
03/14/2009 08:41:32 AM
How many times did you have to do try for the splash? I kind of wish the glass didn't have writing on it so that I could see more what was happening inside. Good capture.
03/14/2009 08:17:49 AM
Good idea, but quite a lot of noise, and perhaps a portrait orientation required.
03/13/2009 08:38:16 PM
a vertical crop would have been better IMO
03/13/2009 08:32:16 PM
Quite the party!!
03/13/2009 06:37:48 PM
Love the flying droplets. Would have used a glass without writing to see the splash and lemon more clearly.
03/13/2009 03:45:34 PM
Pour us one while you're up!
03/13/2009 11:39:51 AM
Nice action shot. The DOF is nice and I like the soft feel of the image. I sorta wish the splash had moved in a different way or the glass was positioned in the frame differently.
03/13/2009 10:37:53 AM
good job with the DOF, the background is blurred nicely
03/13/2009 07:50:44 AM
A little noisy but I love splash pictures!
03/13/2009 06:57:25 AM
Good capture but looks a little grainy.
03/13/2009 06:44:42 AM
Lacks a little punch..... haha oops sorry bad joke
03/13/2009 05:30:43 AM
if it was vodka id give it a 10
03/13/2009 02:32:24 AM
I am not a fan of your choice for centered composition here.
03/12/2009 11:34:30 PM
Nice timing, but I think it would also look good without the logo in front.
03/12/2009 11:22:55 PM
I don't like water in the whisky, but it's a very nice splash!
03/12/2009 01:21:32 PM
great composition, well done action shot.
03/12/2009 12:11:03 PM
I do believe Ballantines would pay good money for this, with a smile..
03/12/2009 09:45:48 AM
Nice job with freezeng the splash, although a bit noisy. A noise reduction program such as Neat Image, Noise Ninja or Noiseware would helped it a lot.
03/12/2009 09:16:26 AM
the splash could be a tad sharper. I had rotated the glass, the logo obscures too much of the lmon
03/11/2009 07:59:58 PM
This makes me thirsty! 5
03/11/2009 11:47:21 AM
I think you forgot the gin ;)
03/11/2009 04:01:37 AM
Water? I have 1130 shots to vote on, I need something a little stronger :)
03/11/2009 03:52:21 AM
just missed with the splash but still a nice attempt at something i find impossible
