    Ooooh, very nice capture! I've NEVER been able to get any shots like that, despite my thousands of efforts. =(

    It's an odd distortion. I like the image, too, and the clarity of the water drops, :thumbup: but the bent glass draws the eye, unfortunately.

    Ah, hang on... just noticed that the backdrop is curved - I'd guess the bent glass effect is something to do with the water refracting the light at different angles after it's bounced off the curved sheet. Couldn't draw a diagram to explain that mind :confused:
