I had one chance to get this shot so I hope you like it, I say one chance because the ice started to melt instantly and had melted by the time I had taken the second shot, due to the water being at about room temperature :o)
Thanks very much indeed for looking,
Details of the set-up are in the comments in Bold
Superb shot! Excellent detail, sharpness and colours. Very professional!
Great, as usual. I like the contrast colour/BW
Flawless, Rob - throw it Gordon's way : they'd be fools not to use it.
hahaha, new right away it was you! fabulous
Stunning, the orange and ice working well in conjunction with each other to produce an excellent well thought out image, nice one!!,
Wow this is cool. Well done!
How did you light this Rob? and with what? Hope you don't mind sharing that info.
Great fresh look to this. Spot on lighting and even better considering you only got one chance. Impressive stuff
Superb - incredibly clean and fresh.
Up to your usual excellence. This is very refreshing. Great lighting.
That's refreshing! Great combination.
Thankyou all very much for your comments :o)
Ian, who or what is Gordons please?
For Rob or anyone else who is interested, this was set-up in a 16 x 8 inch glass tank, I used clear classes to hold the piece of orange in place, the same for the ice, and below that was an airline attached to a pump for the bubbles.
The lighting was a large softbox behind the tank, I did have a slave flash below the tank but ended up turning it off as it didn't really improve it.
Wow. That's lovely.
Looks good enough to drink
Stunning shot there, I absolutely knew it'd be one of yours! I'd be quite interested in giving something like this a try myself this weekend. I have flat sided glass vase and an aerator that I could use but don't have studio lights or soft boxes. Do you think it's possible to get similar shots using just desk lamps? I'm telling myself that I'm going for the "ghetto studio" style. LOL!
Thanks Vesen, P Monk, Barbara and Lauren :o)
Lauren, I think you might be stuggling with standard desk lamps, but if they are bright enough and you can get the shutter speed up then anything is possible, your probably better of doing it in bright sunlight, if the weather picks up a bit :o)
Thanks for the info.
Thanks for that, I'll see how it turns out. I think I need to get myself a lightbox but recently I saw how expensive they can be!
wow, this is brilliant. i really love this. great tones, lighting and composition. superb shot
Oh boy; Stunning. Lost for words Rob.
This is fantastic. It's making me thirsty just looking at it.
excellent image and idea.
That change, you took it in a split of a second, Rob.! (1/2000.!
Great Artistic picture. Well done.
Amazing work. So well done. Congrats. Paul
Just love this, great impact shot. Fantastic comp and detail.

Such lovely work, looks very refreshing! Congrats on the EC and POTW! Oh and RC of course! Did anyone tell you what Gordon's is? Incase no-one e-mailed you, it is a brand of gin, they have tv ads similar to this (except, moving obviously) :o)
not going to attempt to comment on all your pictures, you really have an excllent portfolio..........have enjoyed them all
Vivo, Becky and John thankyou so much for you kind comments :o)
Becky, I think Ian did say what he meant somewhere in the comments, thanks :o)
I saw this a few times on the front but didn't twig it was yours Rob - I can usually spot them a mile off LOL - well done and congrats
Exscellent. The idea and the realization.
Can feel the chill - excellent
Cheers for your comments Steve, Jivko and Dave :o)
Wow great work Gin and tonic springs to mind )
Great work well done on the EC too
Thanks very much Lucy :o)
Oh yes! Very nice, Rob!
Thankyou Patricia :o)
I missed it, how did I miss it?
This is excellent ...and was only a matter of time before you had a potw, which one are you going to get on canvas then?
Stunning shot,great lighting.
Thanks Anne, and Peter :o)
Anne, I didn't think I would ever get POTW with a still life type shot :o)
Do you get a choice of what you have on the canvas then?
You deserve it Rob, surprised you haven't had one sooner ...as far as I know you can choose any pic you like
Thanks Anne, I didn't know that :o)
I was just trying to look through the forum, sure someone asked about it a while back but I can't find it ...hope I'm right
I've rembered, it was Gav, he won potw with his Lemur pic and had a canvas done of his little boy here
...but this is so good, would make a great print
I think I might stick with this one anyway Anne, unless I do owt better of course.
OMG, Like....127 Clicks was not enough, 'eh???!!! LOL!!!
I'm not even going to tell you HOW long it took me to figure out what POTW even meant??!! Damn, I'm still laughing.....I first thought:
Problem of the Week, Poem of the Week, Prisoner of which War?
This is how out of the Loop I am!!! LOL!!!
OK OK, Nice #128th Clicked shot of the Week!
To the Bubblies...
LOL cheers Suzan :o)
N.N.C.S.O.T.W....I will have to think about that one for a few days!
Congrats on a superb image
Click one hundred and thirty ! Stunning work indeed, congratulations Rob.

Stunning piece of work Rob.
Thank you very much Malc )
This is fantastic! Imagine it would work well with plenty fo other subjects too.... why not try a sequence? Strawberry? Blackberry's? Cucumber?
This is just superb! I wish I could see this photo being taken live, so I can learn the technique ! May be an online video would be a brilliant idea!
Once again Great shot!
