Hi everyone!

I spent absolutely hours trying to get this shot right - repositioning flash guns and backgrounds and dropping three peppers at once and firing the camera is quite difficult I have found Smile

Anyway - as my wireless flash triggers came today I was able to use two flashes from either side meaning the background can be nice and dark!

Thanks for looking
Jonah

Well done Jonah,a good result.
Try using the burn tool a little on the bg to make it nice & black as I can just see the haze of the water creeping into the frame,that would show off the Peppers & splashes nicely & give your image an extra 'pop'.

Thanks Chris, Richard and Janet; I have tried to remove as much of the haze as possible but upon closer inspection I can see quite a lot that i missed Wink Thanks Smile

Hi Jonah, I think this is a terrific effort and your persistence is admirable. I agree with Janet that having the background black would enhance the image. I achieved this in my mod by adjusting curves to darken the shadows and then sharpened.
Excellent work!

A lovely capture - but I do agree with the above comments. Having the background totally black makes a big difference! Smile
