    Bored, cold, wishing I was back on Oahu...playing in the water they way I LIKE to, with a board!

    I am glad the kitchen sink could help kill the boredom, a trickle of water and a glass plate, and a cup. the rest done with Picasa.

    Any tips on getting the whole field in focus would be great, these were shot with a sigma 28-80 w/ macro. All shot in manual, with a variety of settings between the lot.

    Any feed back is appreciated.

    Great shots, I also experiment with water a lot. I like especially #2 and #3. No matter how hard I try I just can't get a shot of such round forms.

    nice pictures, these are very difficult to do, next time see if you can get more level with the water though so you can really see the height the water bounces back up, this will also create a great contrast with the background

    Nice shots, looks like you have the timing pretty down.

    Getting there. It seems the drips get a rhythm going, and it is just like counting a measure and clicking accordingly. Lots of trial and error though too.

    I need to mess around with that, thanks for the example.

    Getting flat will be a challenge, but I will sort it out.

    Great shots! #1 is my fave.

    Any worries of the water splashing up and onto the camera lens?

    lol, that is why I used my 70-300.

    I think tonight I will get in there and see what I can do with my 28-80w/macro.
