    Thanks again for all the nice comments. I'm going to try and come up with a good challenge choice that will not get me all wet!
babysister - unfortunately I have a bad habit of having my mouth open when I take a photo :-) I hold you personally responsible for all the mess :-)
kd - That's strange - I'm usually wearing boxing gloves when I'm near you LOL
Bill: 'tireless pros' - you gotta be kidding :-))) I have to go for my nap now.

    Sorry I'm slow with this comment. I think the making as well as the taking of this photo is outstanding. You are well rewarded with all your effort. I hope you didn't get any in your mouth. Congrats.

    Thanks for all the votes and comments. I've posted a 'how to' in the outtakes. I only wish I could share a bottle with you all!

Bernie "The beer is on you" - very witty!

    Well captured. Who can forget the pop of a champagne bottle - especially if it ends up all over them LOL

    Certainly evokes the sound very effectively, but maybe not as appealing photographically as it might be....

    fc: You would not believe how complicated the setup was for this :-)
Patty: Believe me I was holding the cork very firmly. The 1st time I tried it the cork was launched into orbit! By the way this is the correct method to remove the cork from a bottle of champagne or other pressurized drink. It lets you control the release. Pulling it out with a corkscrew can be dangerous and very messy. Admittedly in this case I released all the pressure quickly to provide a better photo. This photo provided a lot of laughs and got me soaked - what a mess! LOL Thanks for commenting.
Phil: Thank you.

    A great action shot capturing the sound being made. Good title.

    Not sure how you captured this as the cork is being held whilst the 'explosion' is happening and there does not seem to be sufficient grip in the right hand - but very clever and amongst my favourites - I can definitely HEAR the celebration :)
