have a coke and a smile

This is another image I took with a couple new flashes and an aquarium. It'll also probably be the last for awhile. Getting a good splash and the coke can positioned right about wore me out.

In this case, it may have been worth the effort. Very good composition and the image is "classic." Best Regards

Personally, I wouldn't refer to advertising as fine art, but this is a very well executed shot.

I see you just went through the "fine art" category and made the same comment on several other pictures. After your comment, I looked over the choices I had, to see what else it would've fit in, and honestly just discovered the "still life/studio" category. Thank you. I won't make the same mistake again.

No worries - and no offence. This is a great shot. I've never tried out this technique of freezing fast moving objects, so it's way beyond anything I've tried in a studio!

Wow... Yet another shot with the water... you do these very well. Personally, I think you need to send a few copies to the Coca Cola company and see if they'd be interested in it. I can see it splashed all over coke machines. Kudos on another job well done!

I would hesitate to claim "intellectual" ownership of anysort over this style of image. Infact I have seen this image technique in Europe a few times before. Although not staggeringly original it you have executed it perfectly. I do give credit where it is due.4/7

Whoa, you do make me smile Scott with this beauty.  The amount of time and effort making this is not lost on me.  It came out most excellent.  I hope you drank the prop here in toast to perfection.
