    Ok, after my first attempt I was thought I'd give this another go. This time instead of the 50mm prime, I used my 70-300mm Sigma lens in the macro mode. Unfortunately this lens is broken, so it will only shoot at full aperture, which I think is 5.6....as soon as you try to stop down it gives you error 99 on the camera :(. Nevertheless, it seemed to work for these shots,and I think they came out better than the first attempt. I used the same method again - dark room with a flash. The colours have been enhanced/altered in photoshop using saturation and hue to funk things up a bit. Also I sharpened some, and ran noiseware on all of them to remove some noise. Other than that, no changes apart from cropping.

    I think 3 and 4 are my faves.

    I got these printed in 8" x 6" and they look so much better than on the monitor :)

    C&C welcome :)

    Looks good! The shutter speed is fast enough, the water looks really, uh, frozen! :) The colours look cool too.
