This image was created using a water bomb with blue food colouring added, and shot using two flashes each side at 45 degrees to the balloon. I popped it using a pin taped on to a slender metal bar which was covered in white insulation tape to help hide it against the white back ground. This was cloned out in photoshop. A touch of sharpening and a little tweak of levels and cropped the image. And a bath full of odd colours and bits of water bombsTongue

Good timing and exposure. I like the idea of food colouring to make it a more interesting colour against the white background. I've only ever done black backgrounds. Must try this at some point.
