I only had one chance with the blue vase found at a garage sale.
One of the things the works best for me in a high speed photograph is the balance of order and chaos.
If you catch the shot too early, thing look to ordinary, too late and it's just a mess of flying pieces.
In this picture, the peaceful roses contrasts well with the shattering vase. And enough of the original form of the vase remains to show its original shape.
