    I love the first one! It's really incredible how that second drop of water looks. It's a reflection isn't it?

    I once tried that same experiment and let me tell you; yours is MUCH better! Haha..

    Really beautiful pictures. I love water :D!!!

    Wow! That first one is very impressive. It's almost like mercury dripping out of the tap more than water.

    So, as an aspiring beginner (very green), could you tell me what you did to set this up? Also, if you could tell me what equipment was used as well as exposures? Very appreciated!

    Thanks for the compliments!! :)

    the set-up is very easy. I have a Nikon D50

    I was using my 50mm 1.8 lens. The trick is to have as fast of a shutter speed as you can with the lens as open as poss. (low aperature number). the Ap on these photos were 1.8 :)

    Very creative and I like the shot a lot. The only suggestion is I would not include so much of the faucet though, I think that would bring more attention to the water drop and the reflection, what do you think of this idea?

    nice photos! The I really like the look of the water in the first one, but the bright spot in the lower right corner is distracting. Cropping it out takes care of it, but unfortunately leaves little room for the water to "fall."

    The only nit pick I have about the second is the bright spot in the middle of the spoon.

    Definately cool shots, I'll have to give something like this a try now.
