Done before or not, this is an excellent capture. Probably more difficult to capture than flying insects.

Would really like to hear more on the setup and preparation for those of us interested in copying you. Why the pink background.

Well done.

I like the pink background - adds some fun to the picture. I like the second one best, also. I've never tried this - is it really harder than flying insects (which I can't seem to master either)?

Nicely done, gfurm-

The colored background, as mtngal has mentioned, really adds to the photo.

I like the first - it reminds me of an icicle pic I like, but upside down.

Great pictures there with effort. Second one is great with individual drops and ripple under the water.
Out of curiosity, how many shots did you took to end with this pictures?

Thank you, that's most replies I ever got in such short time.

setup: camera on tripod with manual flash on hotshoe, kit lens at 55m manually focused to closest focus. glass full of water in front and moved back and forward to have focus in the centre of water circle. pink background was my girlfriend t-shirt hanged behind glass. glass was standing in a bowl to avoid spilling water. droplets created with small sponge which i was holding in my hand squeezing gently. shutter set on 2 sec timer. and you need a lot of patience, it took me around 150 photos to come with a dozen of good ones, I mostly captured nothing I think if you ttry in darker room with slower shutter and freeze droplets with flash it may be easier but I didn't get to it (kinda lazy). I tried different angles, to see droplets from top but somehow it didn't work out (lack of nice backgroud).
