Probably the last drop pic for the time being - unless I find something wonderful amongst all the shots I've taken over the last three or four days.

I've now cleared it all away - for now - I'm drifting a bit with the photos - it's too nippy to do any artistic self portraits and I'm too tight to put the heating on unless I really have to Smile

I'll think of something......

Oh you little rotter James - I've just rambled on and on regarding your latest upload and by the time I clicked submit it had gone! I'll come back shortly and see if I can remember what I said!

Thanks everyone though - having failed somewhat at achieving the more conventional water drop shots, I'm rather enjoying going for the less conventional (or is that just a cop-out?). At f2.8 on that lens though DOF is rather limited so I'm amazed I've managed to produce so many with at least something in focus!

Thanks again everyone Smile

It was a bit noisy in places and I reluctantly used a bit of noise reduction on it - I think that helped the glassy look although the paper I used to reflect is a holographic deep red and produces a lovely effect.

I just guess Terry - the drops will run consistently from a pierced bag so it doesn't take long to learn just when to go click!

As for colour - I've a pack of metallic/holographic card in various colours which I lean against the bag or hold over the drop area - this red works particularly well.
