Not the greatest but ok. Hope you enjoy.

5 flashes set to 32nd power. Throw the glass, click the shutter, pray I get it. :D

I was surprised all week by the voting on this but a very pleasant surprise for sure.

I got called away on a family emergency a couple days ago and won't be able to submit a verification image until late Friday at the earliest. I hope that's ok. Thanks for the smiles. They're much appreciated. :D

It's hard to capture such photos even in 5 flashes. Great capture!

I didn't vote on this picture because I didn't see any chaos!!!

Great SHot!

Great capture. I love that the two glasses are at right angles, which adds a more orderly feeling to the chaotic moment. The only thing I might prefer is if the composition were less centered. This has a lot of potential for using negative space with a wider crop, especially if the shards were breaking in a more directional pattern (hard to do, I know). But as is, it's very good.

Gorgeous photo. I love the composition and almost symmetry.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/13/2010 02:00:54 AM
Great capture. How many takes? The background monotone and lighting effect adds to the shot nicely.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very cool! I find it strange that this makes shattered glass look beautiful in a way.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/12/2010 06:23:19 PM
I love this frozen motion stuff
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Definitley looks like chaos to me. Nice shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/11/2010 03:33:28 PM
Great shot. Good perspective and depth.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/10/2010 04:04:52 PM
I wonder how many glasses you broke to get this image. Rather chaotic indeed!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/09/2010 04:13:00 PM
Chaotic, but the perfectly perpendicular stems keep the fundamentals strong. I put this in my top three.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/09/2010 12:37:16 PM
top 5- good luck on a ribbon
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/09/2010 02:01:43 AM
what a mess this is. I like this picture. Good job of showing chaos.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

One of the few shots where I genuinely see Chaos in action. Very nicely done with the near perfect perpendicular on the stems (although it's pretty obvious that the glasses are laid out on a light table)...

Good job!

nice timing! Very neat looking. I like how the highlights in the background direct the viewer to focus towards the center of the frame (not that it doesn't grab attention by itself)

Great idea, great capture, nails the challenge. Solid ribbon candidate imo.
