    Last one from the weird bloke for tonight. I'm going to try this again over the weekend as I'm not entirely happy. It needs some adjustments to composition, lighting and a faster shutter speed me thinks!

    :eek::mad: Jim!!!

    ...anyway, didn't I already tell Raj in the post above that he should just do it anyway??? :p

    No skin off my nose if there are lots of liquid splash shots entered. The voting public will like what they like and vote for it. If my memory serves me right, there are a few people here on AVF who are very good at this sort of stuff. In fact, Vigmandango's winning shot from last month would serve equally well in this month's competition. I'm guessing that since he set this month's theme, he's probably got something very special up his sleeve! :rolleyes:

    Nicely done Darren. Really like 3 and 4 but there seems to be some noise in the dark part of the picture... what is that? It could be cloned out... just slightly distracting..

    Cheers Raj :smashin:

    It's not noise. I used a baking tray, but it's one of those types that has a speckled coating. Lesson learned, next time I must get a jet black tray :smashin:

    Cheers Jim! 7 & 8 are my least favourite of the sets, the reflections of the crowns are clipped and focus is not completely front to back...but I do like the simplicity of them.

    Doing this has been a new challenge for me and actually given me a few more ideas for the comp.

    :smashin: Like the second one Darren, but not so sure about the first, think it might be the vignette not working with the split light and dark background.

    composition is better in the second but it's a bit too bright for me and kind of swamps the bottle detail for me :)

    I like it for that reason, has a slight ethereal feel to it.

    Yeah I wasn't so sure about the vignette myself, should have stuck with my instincts.

    Flash on 1/4 power, I'll try reducing or diffusing it a bit more.

    Cheers guys!

    Been over a week since I bought some lillies for the wife, yet they simply refuse to bloom....so I put one stem to good use.
