Congrats guys. Excellent effort.

Have a feeling the next theme has something to do with wine? That or one of those "corkers" a lad gives his little brother in the leg!

Hi guys

Thanks so much - Very happy to get the first place in this competition. this has been a goal of mine for a while! My glass is frothing over with excitement. What a great finish to the day.

Not bad for a shot inspired over a late night and a few bottles of champagne.

For those interested the shot was achieved using a Sigma 105mm macro plus an SB800 in remote mode held above the glass of champagne.

Thankyou to all those who voted. And congrats to the other high quality entrants.
