Nicky, thanks , in fact blue brandy sounds to have a bit more punch to it .
Fantasitc , how did you do it ?
Dont know how you did this but its great. Chaz.
Hope you cleaned up after yourself!
Great shot, fantastic detail on the blue liquid in the air, you got the lighting spot on!
Thanks for your kind comments.

Ricky, This is part of a long series which is in my flickr.
I have been asked here on my other uploads also the method do get these images, and there has been a few suggestions also.
Far from not wanting to display the whole method here because a full description is being published in the next month's issue of Digital SLR Photography magazine I think it would put a bit of a damper if I go ahead and describe it here. A full page image along with the description is being printed there.
After the issue is out I will gladly help out with any pointers and tips. But if before that anyone puts forward a theory its just great because there are so many different ways of achieving this method that I keep learning new tweaks and perfect the shots.
Lastly, here is a pointer , this is far simpler than what you all probably are imagining. Its quite basic, but then of course I introduce various tweaks and variables in the procedure which make the images very different and interesting.
Oh, and all these images are straight out from the camera, there has been no pp manipulation or any processing tweaks apart from cleaning the backgrounds and balancing the colours
May be .......... the table/ stand is on some kind of 'drop lever' set up so the stand drops and the camera is set at the point of which it stops.

, that would work too, I think .
As I mentioned, there are quite a few ways of doing this, and they all come up with nice results . The method is very simple as you well mentioned it for example Freila, of course putting it to work then requires some ingenious methods, but nothing that is impossible to pull out.
Freila, you should give that one a go, you might be quite pleased with the results . But do not cancel your order for the next issue of the DSLR magazine yet, I described there a slightly different method. It all depends also where you are setting it up for convenience sake
Thank you again for viewing and commenting
Given that the liquid has all sloshed to the left side of the glass, it appears that either the glass was moving to the left and was abruptly stopped or the glass was stationary and was yanked to the right just before the photo was taken. Both could be achieved by attaching the glass to a sheet of glass and moving the sheet. Dropping the glass vertically would cause the liquid to rise up all sides of the glass roughly equally and probably not very much, too.
