I was just experimenting with some close-up water shots and this is one of the ones i got. You can see the rest of them in the gallery "liquid stills" at http://www.pbase.com/mikej86

Great shot with nice sharp detail. How many shots did you take to get this one?

Also what were your camera settings?

i took probably like 35-40 shots in all. 20-25 of them were good. i used a regular glass with a swivle head lamp pointed at it and my 420EX flash unit, with my camera on the tripod. used the cord button shutter release at about 1/2000 of a sec, at aperture about 9 or 10 i believe. just tried to time it right with when the pennies and such would hit the water.

good job capturing the moment..

why don't you use a similar setup.. put some colored (blue/purple maybe) in a big glass bowl.. use a slightly more diagonal camera position and try again..

the colored water should look more appealing and should highlight the water that is frozen midsplash a little better..

very impressive capture. the best bit for me is that the coin is nicely oriented and you can see the nice picture on it. unsure where I'd use a photo like this, but I do like it.
