gordzam: Yes, it would be interesting to see the setup. Thanks!
Thanks for the interest gordzam :-). I will gladly post a link for you, but due to time differences it might not be till I get home from work 18 hours or so after the close of the challenge.
Do toads count as frogs for this challenge?
Well done Zhaark :-)
Well done Zhaark. You got me this time :-) . Neil.
Naga Praveen: Nice picture.I like, the glass is shattered on one side and falling apart on the other side.Is it an empty glass?
Could you share the technique to get this nice picture?
Gladly. I posted a link to some photos and descriptions above. Have a look at :-
I'm glad you like my photos :-)
cyber101: Oh yea forgot to mention if the photo have more votes then usual then automatically DELETED unless you give me a go reason not to
Thats a clever idea! Simple, yet effective. I like it :-) .
Thank you all for your very kind comments :-) . I'm glad my set up photos are well received. I hope they might inspire some of you to try similar photos in the future. They do take some time and patience but I think the results are well worth the effort. The set up I eventually used only cost me about £30 in total (including the sound trigger) and can be used again and again in the years to come :-) . Happy shooting all. Neil.
Well done Zhaark on a worthy second place ;-).
I'd like to give a big thank you to all of you who voted for my photo :-) .
Here is a link to some photos and descriptions of my setup and another photo I took using it.
If anyone has any questions I'd be happy to do my best to answer them. This was my first ever attempt at high speed flash photography, and if I can do it just about anybody can with some perseverance and determination :-) .
Thanks again all :-) .
Thank you Naga :-)
Yes the glass was empty. All the bits you see are either glass shards or glass 'dust'.
I would be delighted to show you how I took this photo after the results of the challenge. Thank you for taking an interest in my setup.
Interesting photo. I can see why you left it till close to the end before entering this photo - It's not quite 'minimal post processing' is it?!
I see you've entered it yet again! :-). Good luck in that challenge. Neil.
Many congrats Zhaark on another great win :-). It's good to see the young lady in colour this time I think I prefer it. I prefer her pose in this shot too. Love the way you matched the smoke and frame colour, and removed a mole or two ;-) .
I can't wait to see your latest 'smoke' shot!

JimW-203: Where is this remarable - and over-the-top - strucure?
Jim, It's our goverment building in Wales. Have a look at it's Wikipedia page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Senedd or type in 'Wales senedd' into the photo part of your search engine.
OnTheWeb: Nicely done.
Thanks very much :-)
I didn't think anything rhymed with 'orange' ;-).
Many congrats Zhaark on another deserving win for your 3 lolly photo :-) I always was impressed by it. I see you had another Fujimugs entry winner too in November with your Brass photo! Well done, you're on a roll. All the best on your current Fujimugs challenge entries. Neil.
