    So it was the first time I've ever even attempted to shoot water drops, but I shot about 650 photos and came out with about 70 or so that I thought were usable, and out of those this was one of my favorites.

    So what do you think?

    Awesome shot. I really don't see anything about it I'd change. Can you give some details on the lens, lighting and shutter speed you used?

    I agree nice capture but on my monitor the highlights on the back side look blown .

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure the highlights are blown, unfortunate, but that's what I get for using the on camera flash (all I have, no expensive lighting or diffusing here ;))

    I used a Rebel XT with a Sigma 28-90 (not a great lens, but it was the best zoom I had at the time)

    Exif
    90mm - 1/200sec. - f/11.0 - ISO400

    Actually come to think of it I think I did end up diffusing the light with a few tissues, might not have for that shot as it might've been before I figured it out, but a good tip none the less
