    Actually, the flood could have come in handy. All's well that ends well...

    Congrats - a great shot. What with you trying to burn the kitchen down and Mepo flooding the basement maybe this photography business is getting too dangerous.

    Would have shared, but by the time I had put out the fire and shut down the fire alarm, the popcorn had burned...

    Thanks for commenting and voting. I had a lot of laughs working on this one. Bernie, no pots were damaged during the proceedings - just a lot of work to clean up the mess.

    So it was you trying to start a fire!

Congrats on your high finish, and on your survival!

    Your instructions made me laugh! Did you also damage your pot lip on the left during the fire alarm drill? Good choice for the theme!

    Very good because it's fun and you can almost hear the corn popping.

    The sound is clear here. Well composed. In my favorites.

    What we won't do to get a photo - no swearing though - I was too busy trying to fan the smoke alarm and douse the flame LOL

    I love the pot, the flames and the popping corn caught in the act. I wish the background could have been a bit more subdued.

    Well the process might have been a disaster but the result is excellent. Can I hear swearing?

    Very nice - captures the corn-popping sound very well. The blue flame and background control panel add to the realism.

    Your extra info made me smile. Great idea and definitely a 'feel good' of sound.
