    I was looking around on here yesterday and saw a few people taking some really great looking droplet photographs (esp. LaFoto) and thought I would try it out... This is what came out of it. All suggestions and critiques welcome!

    I filled a small glass dish with some water almost to the top and put some decorative "rocks" (I guess that's what they are) in the bottom for some color. I put the dish on an old, black TV stand I have and put it against a white wall. I put my camera on a tripod with the flash on and the lights off and had my fiance drop water into the dish from maybe 2 feet high with a dropper. I increased the saturation and changed the hue a little bit to make it more turquoise. I'm hoping to improve to maybe be at the level of LaFoto and others who have captured beautiful shots of drops :D

    I also cropped a little of the top off, but left the width alone. Any thoughts on another way to crop this?
