Looks good with the drop well defined. Overall the more I stair at this the more I find something strange about the angle of the bottle, the shape seems to have an energy al of its own. I'm obviously loosing the plot. click.

How did you get the bottle to stay in that position while taking the photo?! It is very clear and the tones of green are great *click*

Works for meSmile I was close to giving the last one an EC. This makes the droplet better, but also the rim of the bottle doesn't have the harsh highlight that the last one had so it's a winner.

Thanks for all ya lovely comments everyone and thankyou Pete for the E.C. :o)... me very happy now.

permission to land,
the bottle in the first version was hand held and the camera too, but this version I made some funny contraption out of a cardboard tube and some double sided sticky tape to hold the bottle in position :o)

I also drilled a hole in the bottom of the bottle and stuffed a piece of sponge inside and a length of tubing from a fishtank pump and a large syringe filled with water on the end, so when the bottle stopped dripping I just injected more water into the sponge in the bottle.
a lot of messing about for such a simple looking image...but I think it was worth it :o)

once more I am awed by the prisinte quality of your work. Do you sell much stock photography? You certainly could. But stock aside, this is the work of a SOHO gallery for certain.
