Thanks John. I had another go at it today using the Nikon. This is with a 28mm lens. Definately not happy with the results. The colors come from turning the Xmas paper around so the silver side showed. Its a hologram kind of paper so the flash really pops out the prismic colors.

Thanks Saly. What I love about doing this is that every shot is a complete surprise. This is all manual so nothing can be predicted and a single cycle of a drop has so many things going on in the time it takes to blink.

Thanks. The prep time is annoying. But when you sit down and do the shooting each shot is fun and a complete surprise. Give it a shot. Its got to be as cheap a way of getting some really interesting results.

Actually, the second image you posted on the 25th is really nice... there's no water "column", but the rings look really cool and the surrounding colors are pretty amazing.

Ya its a good lesson. Keep your eye out for background colors. Xmas hologram metalic paper is pretty good stuff with a lot of use. The water reflects an color you put behind it so keep trying to find new stuff.
