    yap.. so here's an eplanation. The emply left area is intentional while a guy who ordered this kind of shot wants to add a slogan there. I played only a bit with levels... too much?

    I used my old aquario (sp?) with water, I put a white sheet of paper behind it, and I... kept throwing the strawberry in...

    Excellent Mentos. The rich red of the strawberry contrasts nicely with the aquamarine water, the bubbles and shadow are great. I think I might leave a little more empty space on the left if anything, it seems to be cropped almost square. I really admire your patience for this type of photography. It would drive me insane after two throws.

    I agree. I love the colors. The aquamarine appears smoth and calming, and then....bam! Red Strawberry splash!

    actually the proportion of the pocture is 4:3 and this is the same what my cam does. And... I did about 200 shots like this... but in most... I missed the strawbery :p

    I'm sure the layout artist can take it from here. It's always better to have some room to work with. It's so much easier to crop rather than adding additional background.

    Very nice. You cetainly earned your fee on this one!

    BTW... what is the product? Let us see the final layout with copy in place.

    Again, very nice.

    haha... it's a ... swimming pool company... they built a swimming pool and try to attract people's attention... I already got a fee for this but I haven't seen the final result uet, because somebody else adds a slogan there :)
