    Hey guys, I have seen that water drop threads are a plenty here at the moment. I took these a fair few months back, maybe 6 or more. This was my first attempt at it and i'm happy with how I went. I know how to improve but I haven't altered my setup yet to achieve this. I did these with a canon 100mm macro lens and 5D2. I hope you like them.

    Water drops arent exactly a "new" craze, but oh well.. at least no 2 photos of them are ever truely the same.. also it's something someone can do indoors, and it's something pretty interesting to try out when someone gets into macro for the first time.. I get my 100mm macro L lens todayyyyyy.. woohoo.

    Also I agree ^ 2 is awesome.

    Not a new trend, or just as new as HDR and Selective Colouring are.

    Doesn't mean they aren't fun to do though! They are challenging, specially when you try and do them different than the masses.

    I like yours very nice job. Have you tried varying the background you are using while shooting? Find some fun shapes, maybe some gift wrapping paper. These can sometimes be nicely reflected in the water drop and provide some interesting bokeh.

    My favorite part is going through and throwing out all of the ones that look phallic.

    Hrm. Perhaps I shouldn't have admitted that...
