    First attempt at water drops - first couple were plain, but then I took some small plastic animals that had color, and dropped them in the bowl of water.... big difference..

    What do you think?

    I'd say #3 is caught at exactly the right moment. It looks literally "out of this world" -- something we don't see here on earth!

    I like the colors showing up in the water, but overall I feel that you could have used brighter lighting -- to lighten up everything, and also to enhance the colors. But, working with what you did, great job!

    I feel all mean commenting on the noise after everyone said how great and colourfull they are...

    I like #1 and 3 the best, Number 2 needs somethinge more.
    Very nice job, I was dooing some water drops last night.

    If you change the depth of the water (like put some drop on a upside down dish of some sort) it really changes the way the water drop forms.

    While I like them, I did basically the same thing a few months ago with what I would say are somewhat better results, and got almost no response. I guess its all timing on here. I will say that I took about 3000 shots to get the results I got.

    Canon XSi 450D
    1/250
    ISO 400
    5.6

    Your'e right about the noise... At first I thought it was some sloppy PP, but looked at some that I havent' touched, and they have some noise also.. 400 ISO would't do that much, would it?

    Anyway - I'll try not only different depths, but different liquids also.. I'll try something a little thicker also.. It was a farily dark room with only the flash... I'll also put up some Halogen lighting to see the difference.. It's fun to experiement..

    Any suggestions on why so noisy?

    thanks,
