    Brilliant, Sulhan! I like both of them very much, just curious on how was the setup for pic #1 like?

    Default Okay Don......here is the setup....a rough one

    Hi Drukh....

    The setup is as follows.....(was on MC yesterday so got the morning to play)
    The setup was using a old frying wok with rusty base. This is aimed to give the rock base feeling when filled with water....

    A wire arm used to hold the empty film can over water held in place at the base of the WOK. I wrapped the arm in black tape so that that area will not glow with flash - for easy removal in Photoshop...if glowing then a little difficult...

    A morning light lighting was used for the left - A forward ratio fill from the camera on boardflash and a stronger right side to give enough light to give reflection on to the water.....
    Ripple - Right on timer mode, i actually shake the WOK to creat the roundish ripple terminating right at the base of the film roll...as if its the one creating it....

    Final image was edited in PS for Black and white...

    Here is the diagram......kekekeke!!!


    Please ignore the spelling errors.....kekekek....

    rgds,

    Conceptually it is very impressive. The photo technique is in the right direction and almost on the mark if not for abit more smoother wave rings. Were you tapping on the rim of the bowl continuously or you timed each singe tapping to the shutter trigger.

    The touching up of the wire need to be further worked on as it can still be seen or at least I think you left out the wire's shadow on the right side of the picture from the top corner till mid-way of the right side.

    #1 pic's exposure for the film roll is pretty balance between available lighting and flash. I like the way that is done.

    #2 pic is almost like a poster layout that fit this product well. And since you are using photoshop to touch up, you might want to burn in the 100 Tmax lettering on the left of the film roll more to compensate for the over exposure to that region.

    Nice shooting....

    Default Thanx...for the inputs...

    You guys are great.....!!!!

    Great inputs man!!!.....i'll see what i could do with the shadow......i dont really like to PS such shadows as i'l trey next to see how a nother directional diffused ligt could clear it off....first time...



    BTW.....i tapped on the rim of the WOK........in repetition at which i get the desired ripple frequency....couple of trials and gor the rythm coupled with the right shutter speed....
