is this month's Olympus Magazine!! I really ought to start again on the splash images, they are so much fun but a big mess to clean up afterwards.

That's a really eye-catching picture and well deserves to be a cover shot. Congratulations! *chr

That's a very clever splash shot well done. How many shots did it take to get that one?

Well done. Something to be proud of. One problem though. Not meaning to belittle your achievement, but I've never heard of Olympus magazine before!

Not seen any ads or anything. But now I know. Thanks for the heads up.

Many thanks to all. For info, my strawberry splash image was done as part of a commissioned article I did for DSLR User mag a few years ago (now called something else). Olympus Mag is quite good, free too!! and you get it on the email.

I shot about 50-60 shots in a morning but used something called a Stopshot to do all the timings etc. Bright Publishing publishes both mags and they paid me for the original article, so I didn't ask for any money this time. I'm not really a good businessman :)

Interesting how these old threads get resurrected as new folks join. Well deserved in this case it's a cracking shot. Nice one Xperia for finding it.
