Water drop cone shot by a bullet. The drop that was just released from the cone (in red, since I used colored water) is still not aware of the mayhem just below it.

Taken: Sunday, 3rd May, 2009
Focal length: 90 mm
Shutter speed: 1/10 sec
Aperture: F9
ISO: 400
Notes: Drop release, shutter, flash and coil gun all controlled by a laptop. As you can imagine, this requires very precise timing (up to 1/1000 sec) for all events. Flust duration 1/64 using Sigma 500 DG Super flash, this is approx. 1/10000 of a second.
