All the best

Thanks everyone, your comments and clicks always cheer me up, even if some of you have forgotten to click!

This was really just a test shot, and I will be doing an improved version later.


For Alison and anyone interested, heres the set-up

This was set on a table top with a large softbox set up level a couple of feet back in the background, I had a long glass trough to catch all the water, and in the middle of the trough was a glass ramekin turned upside-down and a 3in X 2in crystal block with a needle Sellotaped to the top, and the slice of kiwi fruit impaled on it, this is why it looks like the fruit is floating, the edges of the crystal block were still slightly visible though the bright flash from the softbox but easily cloned out. Next camera on tripod set on timer, an empty can with holes in the bottom in one hand and bottle of water in the other to keep it topped up, held it a about five inches above the kiwi fruit while the camera is counting down, and thats it, very simple.
Im not really happy with it because although it was set at F8 the depth of field was quite shallow because it was zoomed a fair bit to avoid getting the camera wet, so the droplets didnt come out very sharp, so next time I do this I will have to get closer to get more depth resulting in sharper droplets in front of the fruit.

Oh! This is interesting! I like the contrast between the green kiwi and the BW water. It looks like you did the drops by hand. Cool!

Wonderful images come out of your head Rob . Very artistic and creative. Thanks for great commentary so lucidly explained . A fantastic piece of work . If I was to nit pic I'd rather see the Kiwi as a softer green .... but then that is personal. xx

Peter, Claudio and Mavis, thanks very much for your comments :o)

Mavis, I would agree about the softer green, but it catches the eye better with an extra boost of colour :o)

Just popped back to see if you'd told us how you did this...thanks for that Rob. Would love to see your set-up in the mod section on shots like this. Truly inspiring...and after reading the 'how-to', rather overwhelming Smile

Another excellent shot made all the better by the very full explanation of how it was done! My minor crit would be that the high contrast on the bubbles makes them look a little unreal against the kiwi fruit.

Inspirational! Now where's that fish-tank?

Personally Rob, I don't think that the droplets need to be any sharper, but that's only my opinion. An excellent image that sounds far to complicated for someone like me to come up with. I like this very much.

Yeah I think it's grown on me now, but I will do another similar shot soon.

It's not difficult or complicated really, basically just a kiwi slice and an empty bean tin with holes in for the water drops Smile

Thanks for the comment and vote Phil Smile

Another marvellous image Rob!
Great colours, but what I really like about this is the sense of movement...The kiwi being dropped into the glass ( or whatever it was )
Another stunning shot!

Thanks Matthew. No kiwi being dropped here though. It's just water dripping from a tin can with holes in Smile
