    I know it's been done a million times before, but i guess we all have to try this ones.
    So here is my attempt at a waterdrop macro:

    It may have been done before, but that doesn't stop it from being an interesting and well captured picture!

    I don't care HOW many times it's been done -- you're right, we all must do it! It's a rite of passage! :lol: And yours is an excellent capture with the multiple droplets.

    Would you mind sharing your setup with us? :)

    I always love pics like this that stop the motion of life dead in its tracks.

    Tnx for all the replies.
    As for my settings:
    1/500
    F/8.0
    ISO 50
    Flash
    Super Macro

    I used a black background and some water on a saucer. The saucer was made of steel which gave a nice mercury look.
    I positioned the saucer on a book and put my camera on the table in front of it.
    The camera was set on custom self-timer to take a burst shot of about ten pictures. I then used a seringe to drop the droplets while my camera was shooting.
    Expect a low 'hit-ratio' but take your time and at least a couple are going to be nice.

    I love how the drops are evenly spaced and sized. Good work!
