Shot, quite literally in a polytunnel, 3 1000 watt quartz lights and 3 800 watt flash lights....plus a sb800 flash, bright sunlight, a marksman with a .22 rifle and sub-sonic bullets, strawberries, cream, sugar and a black backcloth and frame suspended on a light stand!..Trial, error, swearing, cream on lens and camera, but fortunately not on the lights...that would have made custard they get so hot! This was for a commercial photography series based on still life disrupted for my BA...LOVED IT!!!

That's a blast. Love the splashy abstract with so much energy it can't be contained in in the frame and those beautifully coloured strawberries with nothing much to do except hold the whole thing together.
Blammmm... now, where's the spoon.

This has got impact and interest, and it's clear there was a lot of effort behind this shot. I love the out-of-frame action idea, well deserving of my vote, and my User Award. Was hunting for pictures that immediately struck me as awesome or had that "Wow" factor, and yours was the one today! Well done!

Absolutley amazing shot and one very few people would dare to try. I'm not too sure about the frame though, does it add to the image, I actually find it quite distracting, just my opinion of course. the image itself is amazing but just unsure about the necessity of the frame!

Andrew.
