    Didn't know you'd been in Glenfarg for the last couple of days, as we've had plenty of rain!
    Super image.

    I like the photo very much.The starburst near center frame is eyecatching.
    Here's one from my attempts at water drops.

    I think a) that is outstanding and, b) devising and executing the image is way beyond my technical capabilities.

    Did you time that by hand or have some trigger? Are the apparent ripples at the base the same droplet during the second delayed flash, or is it part of the surface the drop is falling onto with the flashes going at the same time?

    Re: Rain

    Thanks,Donald.It's easier than you would think.Toughest part is timing the drops.

    Re: Rain

    I timed it by hand.The drop is falling from a sink faucet into a swirled glass plate.Both flashes were fired at once.If I remember correctly,I had one flash directly on camera right at 3 o'clock position and the other was camera left at about 8 o'clock position.

    wjh - i could certainly see your image as a wonderful add on in a montage - or as a texture layer! Jim B - love the reflection of the plate in your droplet

    Outstanding Jim. One of the best 'drop' images I have seen.

    Re: Rain

    Thanks for the comments.My next try at this I'm going to set up a drip tube.Using a water faucet is hard to get the right speed for the drops.A tube will give me better control.
