take a picture of one of these volcanos:

but make the exposure so short that the tiny particles flying out of the opening are visible (not these long "streaks" that we always see, but completely frozen burning particles) - you have to get really close with the camera.

Thank you. The exploding vase sounds the best so far. Water-filled balloons have been done to death - especially by me - please take a look at the HSF section of my Flickr site - you will see several shots where the water is hanging in the air with no sign of the balloon.

i took a look at your flicker pages.
the shot (air-)balloons are interesting.

i didnt see any waterballoons where the balloon itself is gone. also the water splashes around quite a lot. these airgun pellets deliver too much of a shock to the water i guess. what i had in mind is kind of a "ball" of water hanging in the air. not sure if it can be done...

i really like the one where your hand with the airgun (shooting a balloon) is in the frame too. makes it look more dramatic and less scientific.

What shutter speed would 9 micro seconds be equal to?

9us is about 1/111111s, but you have to note that when a camera does fast shutter, the time taken for the shot is still limited by the shutter travel time. So one end of the shot could be several milliseconds from the other end, even if the exposure is much shorter.

Would have commented earlier, but I've been racking my brains for interesting ideas and failing. If money was no limit, maybe you could go up against the "will it blend?" style of destruction of desirable items...

I can do 1/16000 sec, no high speed photography for me then. :(

Btw, really nice shots cybermystic, very interesting to look at. Thanks
