Okay, I've been lurking in this forum for months and have never posted a photo here even though I've posted some in other forums. So, here's one for you folks. Let me know what you think.

I like it because it is different.

Is it a couple of drops of milk falling into a red dish with water in it?

nice abstraction, i like the color and the off center composition of the white on red. there is movement and nice detail yet no clear indication of what exactly this is....nice.

how did you get the timing right---very difficult---how many photos did you take before you got this one---very nice capture

It is milk splashing into red-colored water and I got lucky on the timing. Oddly enough, this was one of the first photos I took in this series - sheer luck. It was my first time playing with milk - until that point I had only played with water.

I use the remote trigger and try to vary the timing to get various points in the splash cycles. On the night that I took this one I took about 60 pictures and came away with about 10 keepers. I think this was the best of the lot.

In a book i saw a photo similar to this---that one was taken with a flash in a dark room, the fallingmilk drop passed througha small beam of light ,thus blocking the beam and that triggered some sort of a circuit which fired the flash after some delay--- adjusting the beam height would take photos of various stages of the drop splash--- maybe someone here knows of this gadget and where it is available
