Now, that is a unique interpretation of the challenge and an outstanding photo. Is that wine? Good work.

What a fantastic technical shot! I bet it took ages to balance the ball on the spike!

I think we found our first punctuation mark. The upside down exclamation point. :lol:

Wonderful shot! The letter "i" is challenging because there are so many times you could claim an element of a photo was an "i." In this case, the "i" takes center stage in an unmistakable manner.

Bynx, that is outstanding. How many shots did it take for you to get that?

Bynx,

First class exhibition of some lovely technical skills. Lots of patience too obviously.

Aloha

Thanks for you kind words.
If you saw my setup you would certainly laugh. A pyrex dish on a pedestal in front on my balcony door. This was my third attempt at stop action photos. Altogether Ive taken about 700 shots. But I have it down now that I can produce something like this every time. I did take 280 shots on this attempt and that was because I was looking for something special which didnt really happen. But it did open the door to new ideas. Instead of splashing laundry soap on red dyed water Im going to bounce milk off a black arborite top. That should definately produce some interesting shapes.

Thank goodness it took you so many shots. I always feel inadequate when it takes me multiple shots to get what I want.

I did this with trying to capture water dripping from icicles last year. I could get the icicle dropping, but wanted the glint of the sun on it. I think I finally succeeded, but the image was blurry. I didn't havemy tripod which was sorely needed for that project.
