      hello again
      i like to try to do this shot with your permission of course
      do you use all lighter fluide or it is on top of the water

      - Thank you very much!

      - Thanks Solli, of course, go ahead and try! It's only a bit of fluid on top of the water, about 7-8 drops, you don't need very much. Looking forward to seeing your results.

      Can I please use this image as an illustration on my blog ( It's not a business enterprise, just a labor of love. I wrote a post that refers to a trendy martini bar in hell, and this is a perfect image.

      Hi Vlad. I really love this picture and I'd like to know if I could have your permission to use it as a backdro.
