    Congratulations to your first experimenting to photograph droplets. Beware. This disease is highly contageous and usually hits anyone who gets hit with the "droplet disease" really hard :D !!!

    This photo is not in focus and the surface of the water is not plane, so now all your water will run out of my screen and onto my desk. Oh, the mess! ;)

    You do need more light than you had when you took these, and the camera needs to be on a tripod. That's my advice. Flash helps heaps. And it also helps to have the camera almost at the same height as the surface of the water in the bowl, not too much higher. Coloured water or colourful backgrounds help make the droplets look more "dramatic".

    I haven't gotten the WDF (water droplet fever) yet but I would try getting some light below the water surface somehow.

    I think you should try altering your light source to get better highlights and shadows. Right now the drops don't stand out much from the background
