    Water Drop

    Hi again,

    Cheers

    Great work Jason. You have certainly got the DOF spot on to help accentuate the drop. No 2 is my favourite and I wonder if a tighter crop, removing some of the right plain area may help.

    Do you use a syringe to place the drop ?

    PS, Must be viewed full size to appreciate fully.

    I agree with all that Grahame has written.

    For me the reason that most attention (because they're all very good images) falls on #2 is the wonderful, what I would call, harmony in colour and tone. It is, I think, a very serene and subtle image. Wonderful.

    Hi Jason,
    Definitively #2 is the best, but maybe a similar result could be obtained in #3 by cropping a bit more the upper left corner, that is quite sharp and maybe distracting.
    Anyway, wonderful all of them!

    Hi and thank you all for you comments and feedback. I do use a syringe to place the drop, but I have had to improvise with the "needle" as I can not buy a syringe with needle. My needle is a cut off bit of the thing you use to inflate balls with, the part that goes into the ball of course, if that makes sense. I have had a play around with various different crops but found, for me, I preferred what I have here, although I do agree with Giacomo about #3 and will try a bit of manual blurring of the area mentioned. Again thank you for you comments they are appreciated.

    Cheers
