hi, thanks for your comment!!
no i don't have a pic and my camera is still at minolt, but i will tell you just about every detail
ok here goes, first i had a bowl of water full to the top so that "surface tension", at least on the macro level, will make it look like the bowl is not there, then i had my camera setup about 8-9 inches away at full tele with a flash bounceing of a reflecter and another flash (oposite of the sun, this is out side) on a stand, no refecter, then i had a setup to drop waterdrops at about 1 per second i manual foucs on the spot where the drops are falling, adjusting settings every so often and just shoot away
as for the flag, on some shots i had a BIG flag in the background, on other i had a small hand held flag on a little stick under the water about 1/2 to 1 inch under the water

p.s. i did not do very much photoshop work

i hope this helps

thanks

i'm glad you like them! :mrgreen:

yes the camera was on macro, manual focus, full tele
the drop "setup" was from something called a mistymate ( www.mistymate.com ) i just took the mist tip off and turned the valve on low and let it drop, i hung it about 3 feet from the bowl, on a stand with a stick coming out like an upside down L i waited for the wind to stop, stuck a ball point pen where the drops where going, foucsed, and shot away

the setting where the same, just different light setups the settings are as follows: iso100
shtter speed 1/2000 apature f4.5

thanks
