Just played around with water drops after seeing them before.....

I prefocus on a selected spot on the water surface, switch to MF, and just snapping while using a dropper to drip the water.

Appreciate any comments/critique...as its my first time trying it.

Very nice shots. The water is so blue. Did you use PP or a colored glass or?

The blob reminds me of the alien water probe in the movie the Abyss (I can see a face in it). I am guessing you had a blue container?

Hi all! Thanks for the comments!

Yes, pschooley is right! I used a blue translucent container, and in some of the shots, I put a CD (with the reflective face up) beneath the water hoping to create some lighting effect....at least it did in the last picture.



PS only in levels, curves, colour balance, and USM....and some neatimage.
