Nice colours and a good effort but this could be a bit sharper. Since you're using flash, I guess your shutter speed is fast enough to avoid blur, so maybe it's slightly out of focus. Assuming that your plates are securely held in place, turn the tap off and focus accurately on a biro tip held where the drops will land. Put the lens into manual focus and turn the tap back on.
Thanks, i agree could be a bit sharper but plates wasn't secure, they was sat in between the small drain on the sink , i was just having a quick go with my new lens, last time a did a splash pic i did it with a pen and in manual
That sounds secure enough to me — what I was angling at is that you weren't holding them in your hand so they weren't moving. Anyway, there's plenty of scope for playing around and these plates do make excellent backdrops for this kind of shot.
