This was the result of a bit of experimenting, so i'm not sure about it yet :o)

Very strong image, good bit of experimenting. Is the water real then?
All the best
Thanks, yes the water is real, it's all real :o)
Tell us how you did it then Works well - very striking.
Off out now to a bird-park to photograph some parrots and the like hopefully
Fantastic shot !
Thanks Alison and Caleb, I will be back to tell you later.
Superb and refreshingly creative.
Is this the famous white perspex :o) ? Great clear, clean image and like the way the light radiates from the centre of the kiwi.
Many thanks again for your help
superb crisp image,
Cracking shot - very 'refreshing', a pick me up after my shot last night.
Beautiful bold colour.
wonderful shot - with good detaol. click
Great shot Rob well done keep up the good work
Great detailed image! You are so good at these shots!
water looked unreal....
Stunning work Rob
excellent work .... very nice ..
Typical of your outstanding work. Keep it up. Very good indeed.
Very striking image, at a guess I would say white background, backlit, drop the kiwi fruit in the water, take the shot? Nicely controlled exposure however you did it!
Vibrant colour and spot on exposure - I love the water trail.
Now I actually prefer this to the orange, really eye catching
...maybe doesn't need that drop at the bottom, if I was to really nit pick!
Looks very Fruity Rob. Getting water in my mouth. lol
Excellent experiment. Looks like a draft.
Fantastic! Love the glowing kiwi. Excellent detail and composition.
Lovely clean, sharp image Rob. Keen to hear how you did this too
like it the kiwi gives it that punch well done.
a good bit of experimenting.
Great work Rob,works well,
Another excellent image Rob! Very refreshing! Great work!
cracking! excellent work.
super shot. it was well worth experimenting
Lovely image Rob, nice work.
Nice clean sharp image. Very refreshing. Denise x
excellent shot,great work.
Thanks everyone, your comments and clicks always cheer me up, even if some of you have forgotten to click!
This was really just a test shot, and I will be doing an improved version later.
For Alison and anyone interested, heres the set-up
This was set on a table top with a large softbox set up level a couple of feet back in the background, I had a long glass trough to catch all the water, and in the middle of the trough was a glass ramekin turned upside-down and a 3in X 2in crystal block with a needle Sellotaped to the top, and the slice of kiwi fruit impaled on it, this is why it looks like the fruit is floating, the edges of the crystal block were still slightly visible though the bright flash from the softbox but easily cloned out. Next camera on tripod set on timer, an empty can with holes in the bottom in one hand and bottle of water in the other to keep it topped up, held it a about five inches above the kiwi fruit while the camera is counting down, and thats it, very simple.
Im not really happy with it because although it was set at F8 the depth of field was quite shallow because it was zoomed a fair bit to avoid getting the camera wet, so the droplets didnt come out very sharp, so next time I do this I will have to get closer to get more depth resulting in sharper droplets in front of the fruit.
LOL at your explanation Rob, I bet your kitchen looks like a scientific experiment!Result is worth it though! Jane
LOL! thanks Jane :o)
Excellent piece of work and thanks for sharing the way you did it. Nice punchy colour in the Kiwi.
Fantastic work Rob x
really love this one. great colours and lighting
Wow ablolutley fantastic!! Great shot.
Beautiful shot, well done and creative, good camera work! Spot on! Click!!!
Excellent details,presentation and texture are great...
Thanks for your comments Tony, Linda, Cornelia, Lucy, Gred and Cesie :o)
Very interesting shot. I like it.
Very nice Rob.....Click!
Cheers and Happy Sunday to ya,
Thanks Chris and Suzan :o)
And I thought the whole setup was in fish tank, aerated air bubbles, image rotated 180 deg.
Thanks for sharing. One other thing if you are interested, next time you could post a picture of the 'setup' in the 'mods section'. Sometimes it's a little difficult for me to grasp at the tech talk, you know what I mean?
I had actually thought of uploading the set-up in the mods Su, but couldn't be bothered at the time LOL :o)
Brilliantly thought out and taken.
Top notch, Rob.
Splendid Rob, just splendid.
I think its good, the outlines of the bubbles are perhaps a bit heavy but have read your approach above so again very good
A belated thanks for the explanation Rob - one of these days I'm going to clear a bit of space round here and give it a go. Good idea with the can/holes - I'd been trying to come up with a way to 'drop' water rather than pour.
great image,it was good to read how you managed this!
Very classy image, superb work.
Thanks everyone, I hope my explanation has helped in some way :o)
Excellent. Well done.
Grows on you
Good stuff as always - if I am being hypercritical the composition is a tad too central.
Fantastic detail, lighting and colours, very well captured, great shot!
Thanks Jivko, Dave, Chris and Charlotte :o)
I will try and catch up later, am just so busy today :o(
A cracking image, love the colour of the kiwiw, nice explanation how you achieved this,
Has your stamp all over it, Rob! Excellent work!
PS - Sorry about the late comment - I've been away / busy
Thankyou very much Chris and Jim :o)
Amazing shot, and this is only an experiment !?
This is even better than the EC for me - sooo good!
Stunning image, Superb.
Alexandra, Tori and Yogendra, thanks very much indeed ☼☼☼☼☼
Well Rob, still not sure?, lol...clever exposure and tchnically impressive.
Just want to say thanks very much for the Mods you did to my photo. You have certainly inspired me to study more. Thanks again, Teresa.
You may not be sure about it, but I sure am! I could see a whole series of these. And I'd click every one if they are this good! I'm going to remove my shot from today and upload another one later. This one looks too fuzzy! Especially compared to this. Thanks for your comment.
Thankyou all very much for your comments :o)
Teresa, I enjoyed doing it, so thanks for uploading it as a modifiable image.
P.S. you could have clicked me image!
I thought your shot looked fine Patrick, didn't look fuzzy to me.
Not really upset, I just knew once digicammad, etc got in on the act it would go so fast downhill that the crash at the bottom would be a complete wreck )
Thanks Cheryl LOL! I knew you had a good sense of humour :o)
In a class of your own!!!
Thanks Jill :o)
now theres a coincidence,... nice work... well done!
Oh! This is interesting! I like the contrast between the green kiwi and the BW water. It looks like you did the drops by hand. Cool!
Wonderful images come out of your head Rob . Very artistic and creative. Thanks for great commentary so lucidly explained . A fantastic piece of work . If I was to nit pic I'd rather see the Kiwi as a softer green .... but then that is personal. xx
Pouring with rain here
Peter, Claudio and Mavis, thanks very much for your comments :o)
Mavis, I would agree about the softer green, but it catches the eye better with an extra boost of colour :o)
Now that looks like the best sliced fruit shot I've seen from you Rob - haven't read any comments but assume you're using your light equip. to achieve this?
Thanks Steve mate :o) yeah I just used me soft box for this shot.
Knew this one was one of yours... gr8!
Thanks sweetie :o) x
Just popped back to see if you'd told us how you did this...thanks for that Rob. Would love to see your set-up in the mod section on shots like this. Truly inspiring...and after reading the 'how-to', rather overwhelming
If I do it again I will upload the set-up too, thanks Nic.
Really excellent shot Rob. Lovely as always. Love it. CLICK.
Great shot, Rob. Click
Simply stunning.....I really must have a go at doing something like this. Excellent stuff!
Excellent shot! LOU
I was hoping for some new ones!
Click no 100 Very creative work, perfect light bringing out the vivid colour of the kiwi fruit.
Can't believe there's no EC or HC at the very least against this.
Smashing colours and very dynamic! Doug
Another excellent shot made all the better by the very full explanation of how it was done! My minor crit would be that the high contrast on the bubbles makes them look a little unreal against the kiwi fruit.
Inspirational! Now where's that fish-tank?
Thanks for the comments everyone :o)
I was never happy with this image Chris, just needs doing again but I would rather move on to something different now.
FANTASTIC...You've got one hell of a Portfolio
OOPS ...Sorry about that
Cheers Terry and J :o)
Like it lots,Teena
I think I want a new camera.
(Re-think... Geoff won't let me remortgage...)
love this shot, well done. experimenting paid off!!
Personally Rob, I don't think that the droplets need to be any sharper, but that's only my opinion. An excellent image that sounds far to complicated for someone like me to come up with. I like this very much.
Yeah I think it's grown on me now, but I will do another similar shot soon.
It's not difficult or complicated really, basically just a kiwi slice and an empty bean tin with holes in for the water drops
Thanks for the comment and vote Phil
Another marvellous image Rob!
Great colours, but what I really like about this is the sense of movement...The kiwi being dropped into the glass ( or whatever it was )
Another stunning shot!
Thanks Matthew. No kiwi being dropped here though. It's just water dripping from a tin can with holes in
