Number 2 is the best, it's got the most convincing sense of motion.

the first one is great i think ... because of its simplicity and the two colour background.

i agree though, that you lost quite many of the water ripples.

Wow, I do like Photo 1, and how the tip of water seems to balance the droplet, and I also like the complementary background colours and how they switch inside the droplet! Way cool!

The wobbly droplet in 1 ... what WOBBLED it so??? That one is very funny. Lovely colours there, too (like in all), and the ripples look their best in Photo 2.

I think Photo 4 could also (still) be very good as a division in half and using only the top (now horizontal) half! The blurry background and its turned-around colours sharply represented in the droplet only.

I really dont like the crop on these, why have you cut half of the ripples off..

Yeah sorry about that i was trying to keep the focus intact and i was shooting handheld and dropping the water in there at the same time. I didnt have my tripod with me so when i get that i can get the frame more centered and i was also shooting portrait.

Lol I just caught that one on the way up. I found a condiment dispenser like the ketchup bottles at restaurants at walmart and thats what im using to drop the water in and a lot of these splashes wernt going straight up they were splashing out of the bowl.

how do people do this? they look so good!

Thank you. As for how i do it; all you do is get a bowl, something to drop the water (a water bottle with a squeeze top will work), something to use for a background, lights and a tripod although i didnt use one and a lot of patience lol. Its not very difficult i think the setup is prob the hardest part.
