Fair enough, one more then since the first ones aren't interesting enough to comment.

Particle_Man... the last one is definitly better. I was a bit confused by the red component of the other shots.

This one is really good (I love the surface texture). Pitty you have this "thing" (can't find an english word for it) in the foreground..

That "thing" is an air bubble from the impacting water drop.

some people don't like it, many do

I think the multi color lighting on the first few is a bit overpowering and has hurt the shots more than it helped. The last is nice but the air bubble breaks the shot up.

I think I recall you posting some other multi colored shots and they looked much better.

Indeed I did, which were taken after the first ones. It's not easy taking good shots when all you have is an old thyristor flash and the on camera one

Now I'm building some better softboxes and spots for pinpoint lighting solutions instead.

Widowmaker - I checked your water shots, and indeed they are good...but they feel a bit too murky to make an impact on me

here are the other ones I did.

Yes those shots are intentionally dark. Since the formation created from the drop is actually the subject, I prefer that to be the most dominate subject in the shot rather than the ripples etc. To many ripples and the wrong angle and the formation gets lost as it does in your first three shots.

I much prefer cleaner shots, like the last, where the water formation and ripples are not over active.
