Contest goal:

High speed photography is the science of taking pictures of very fast phenomena. Any set of photographs captured by a camera capable of 128 frames per second or greater. In other words, each of these photos taken, was done in a split second, allowing extremely great detail of an event (example).

In this contest we're not going to use photography to achieve this effect, but we're going to recreate one of those frames in a graphics program. For instance, a bullet leaving the barrel of a gun, a water balloon exploding, or a water drop splashing in a glass of water.

To get an idea of how this can be done, check out this Slow motion bullet shot effect tutorial.

Good luck!

My experiment trying to make the realistic water splash. I'll explain in the SBS.
Thanks to germanstock and germanstock for the stocks of the cherries and the water surface.
I added some more effect (other than what I mention in the SBS: distort the bottom part of the cherries, lens blur the top and the bottom water areas, add vignette effect. Now I'm quite satisfied with the result :D (5 years and 2487 days ago)
