Molten mid air collision by KarlDawson Molten mid air collision by KarlDawson
Mid-air water droplet collision. I finally got external flashes working on a separate trigger output of the StopShot (the variable and wacky shutter lag on Canon cameras is *not* fun), and this is one of the results.

Taken in a wine glass with a white light-tent as a backdrop, and a matallic green card placed behind the glass and part way up the tent. One flash was pointed at the backdrop, with a second aimed at droplet height to the left, and fired through red gell.

Thanks =D The only Photoshopping was some cropping, some levels adjustment, the removal of a couple of dust bunnies, and the addition of some vignetting (mainly on the left-hand side).
So what, you don't see something like that when you turn your tap on? =D

You probably *are* just as good (or better!), you may just not realise it yet :-)
