I've seen the one with the floating spheres, but not this one. I actually like the reflections that add to the items shape. Nice

Since the kettle is on a stove maybe you could use the interior of a kitchen? Or maybe put the kettle over a fire and use a cave for the background.

I think this needs a background. I really think it would help the piece. Good luck author.

they say ya can only use the heal brush to remove dust and scratches from a scan or speckles from dust on your camera's sensor. i don't know about finger tips ! LOL !!!! maybe an sbs showing the original, and then a finished entry with just cropping used perhaps ??

Really author? no flash? and only a 1/2500th shutter-speed?!? what was your f/stop and light source...I'm VERY curious, perhaps what cam did you use too....I've been shooting for a couple of months and I can't see how this very High-speed shot was accomplished, would LOVE to see the original or Hi-Rez...

To have your shutter-speed that high w/o a flash, your light source must have been VERY intense and to keep the BG black without spill-over is a very neat trick...

Meatman...it's not shutterspeed that 'freezes' the action, it's the flash....
