    Need a faster shutter speed. The droplets are blurry

    Wow. Are you going to become the Mapplethorpe of water?

    1/200s, f/13, ISO200, flashed. More of a case the offending droplets were beyond the focus point, methinks.

    Offending blurred droplets removed. It actually draws more focus to the imagery in my mind by removing them. I see a Florence Nightingale coming to the aid of a wounded warrior. Thanks Sach.

    Certainly not even close (on multiple layers :D), but thanks all the same.

    #1:

    Good job on the edit. It's not typically a smooth backflow of water like I see in the others...with the ruff surface area i think it almost resembles ice. The color in your background is unique, and so is the shape. I really like it alot. Also the background compliments the shot more.

    #2:

    Not as interesting as number #1. The first one fills up the frame. This shot has too much empty space and the composition of the backflow of water isn't that great.

    Happy shooting! :D

    Thanks Tom and Camz.

    The colors are the easy part....... just dig out one (of my several) tie-dyed tee shirts.

    Here's the set-up. Bowl of water on a two-step ladder. I bungeed a water bottle on a boom.... squeeze with one hand and trigger the remote with the other. I had three SB flashes bouncing in different directions. The toothbrush (no longer in service) was used to get a focal point in the bowl of water. The micro-fibre cloth was used to remove the water on lens. The umbrella was not used in the end, awfully tight space.

    Nice setup kundalini. Although it's not the equipment I'm worried about acquiring...it's the shirt! :lol:

    I like it a lot. Check out Paul Licht on flickr if you're into water lenses. He never fails to impress.

    I like the results, and I am impressed with the set-up. Very creative.
