    Really cool shots. How did you manage to catch the drops as they fell?

    Hi Scott,

    I like the effect on the first and second ones, but on the first the bottom of the container kept
    catching my eye. On the second it almost appears as if the lens itself was wet, and the image
    also appears to be tilted left (may very well not be, but that's what my weird eyes perceive..Drips and Drops for C & C).

    The water drips are interesting (especially the letters showing in the large drop on the far
    right, but it seems just a bit "noisy"?

    I really like the processing you've done with this one. It seems as if the waves are on a wooden or metal thing.

    Those are neat shots... Perhaps a black frame of some type woukd help them stand out against the gray of the CiC background.

    Hi Scott, I agree with Mike. The bottom is distracting. I'd suggest to cover the bottom surface with some more absorbing surface, for example paper, also lowering the camera-angle would be a good idea. If you have a external flash I'd suggest you'd illuminate the drops from behind (kind of bouncing the light at the 'drop zone' on the water towards the lens). Some attention to lighting your droplet shots can make an overwhelming difference.

    I have no real constructive stuff to say. I just think it's totally cool you got such well defined drops. I hope I can figure out how to do that one day!

    Thank you all for your thoughts. There are a few more pieces of lighting equipment that are on my list that will certainly help in improving these shots as Jeroen mentioned. I kind of have a thing for metal hence the processing attempt. Nonetheless, I find water droplets wonderfully random and very interesting. More and better shots to follow down the road... Thanks again all!

    Surely they are interesting. If you need some inspiration, have a look over here. These are all pictures done by Martin Waugh. If you search for his name on youtube there are a lot of interesting video's about how he does it. For example his cooperation with Discovery Channel's Time Warp is great.
