I have to tell you that your phot and your notes are so outstanding that they really ought to win all kinds of prizes.
joli travail d'artiste photographe! beau résutat à l'arrivée bravo !
1st shot you are so lucky.. I have been trying for a drop for months.. lol
really wonderful color and detail.. as always notes are so helpful.. thanks
What a great shot, excellent colour and sharpness, great use of lighting too.
Am I glad I read your notes, for a minute I thought you had wasted good alcohol LOL
Very beautiful detail and nice colours, clarity and perspective!
Great capture; wonderful done and very nice info's
TFS and have a nice weekend
Hi David! well timed and well done. always been wanting to have water shots such as these. TFS!
A excellent photo with great use of technique capturing the splash perfectly. Great work on the lighting and keeping the details in the right spot. It is a pity that you got a little bit of noise in the shaded area and that the top of the splash in cut by the frame.
Good evening David,
Superb capture, I tried this a few weeks ago, my camera wont flash on multiple shots so I gave up. I did try in daylight but i dropped the ice cube and it seemed like two hours later before the shutter started clicking. I think I need to wait until I get new camera before I try again!.
I like the colours chozen here and the walnut was an excellent idea... (my ice kept melting)
TFS and my best wishes for your friend has his embarks on his photography hobby... I do hope you warned him of the addiction :-)
You make me thirsty!
Moment is very well captured, excellent details...
Magníficos detalles y espectaculares colores.
Un saludo, JL.
The execution of the shot sounds far too complicated for me to grasp, especially at midnight, but the result of this complicated shot is just remarkable! I need say no more than that!
Wow, well captured! Wonderful sharpness and detail and a lovely colour! Looks great against the dark background. I must try this one day! Well done and TFS Great notes too!
Cheers Tina :-)
Absolutely incredibly cool pov here great capture, even the framing is cool! WOW! TFS
Wow! . . Great shot. Raight moment to capture it. You did very well.
Lovely lighting and composition.
Very creative and dinamic shot.Well presented.TFS.
Wow, first shot, you are so lucky.
I have tried many times to get a water drop shot, unsuccessfully!
I love the way you have captured the frozen moment in time.
I also like the contrasting colours.
Well done, Tfs Tracey
Few things I like about this one:
1. Good clear colours of the water,
2. Good sharpness of the spalhing water around,
3. Good framing that goes well with the clean and almost distortion free background,
4. And the thin frame that matches the water colour.
Well done David.

Hi David. The thing that I like most about yourwork is the detailed notes you always supply. Far too many on this site either don't bother or want to hide the facts. Excellent timing, good colour and light and fine focus. TFS,

David, what an amazing job, outstanding picture and fantastic note. In Holland a 10 is the highest score you can get, so from me you get a 10+!
Well composed photo.That is fantastic with lovely colors and structur, what always occurs to you, therefore hat off. Thanks to for this so good photographic work.
Another good work David. I love the color of the liquid and its sharpness. Very well done and thanks for sharing the technique.
Excellent action you did on this. Good job.
Glad its not a glass of whisky, that would have been spoiling a good drink. lol
I would have preferred to see the whole glass, but that doesn't diminish my appreciation of this difficult to shoot. Wonderful splash, colors are true, and with good exposure. Best wishes, Danilo
Great shot! It looks like a "honey animal" jumping out of the glass. Perfect sharpness and detail.
great moment you nailed...
very beautiful image...
my congratulations David...

Hi David ,
Superb shot. How did you manage it so well.

A walnut! In summer i prefer a cube of ice :)
But i enjoy the experience! It practically a persona... We see the splash awake and emerge an arm out of the glass... Don't you see it's sign... Come and Drink me!!

David I dont know what is more interesting - your phots or your explainations of how you accomplished them. I copied this explaination to try the tricks later. Clarity and composition are top flight.
Additionally, thanks for the positive comments on the orange pepper.
