Sure. Zoomed to 300mm, f8, 1/200th, ISO 200, WB varied between shots and that's it for camera settings. Did some color touch up in post.

The trick with doing water drops is focus.

Well you didnt fail because you tried. But unless you are really Stevie Wonder, you can see they are all out of focus. Its tricky to get the light right, the ISO low enough so there isnt any noise, the fstop small enough to give you good depth of field and shutter speed fast enough to get that stop action needed. Everything looks fine except for the focus.
