I've got a few which worked well, but this is much neater.

I think the key is to get at the correct angle to the water. This is perfectly framed K. Well done. Love the toning too!

16 Feb 2005 1:27AM
Oh my good grief, I thought my days of EC's were over, I'm shocked, stunned, amazed and chuffed to bits!! I actually thought something had gone wrong with the upload because it wasnt in the first spot of the first row then I realised it was in the ECs, ramble, wibble, wibble. Off for a cuppa, thanks all so very much and to Pete for the EC, BIG SMILE NOW! Smile)))))))))))

Have you been complaining, K???

Seriously I think it has been said, but you found a good angle for shooting the 'plop'. I was gonna do some more some time, but I don't think I'll bother now, I know when I'm beaten ;-((

Thanks all so much, I didnt think this was the best one of the three but the other needs a bit of work on the background, might have to do an RGB plop series Wink K.

I know this is really sad but I would have been tempted to move the droplet across so it was over the centre of the water tower.

It is the green colour...that is what makes it a little different to all the rest...great job.
(I have to confess that I too have been intrigued with having a go at the "water drop" have made up my mind - I will have a go!)

Thanks for the inspiration.

Could you move the top drop a little to the right? That would really help this shot.
Just kidding! I must try this sometime. (I keep saying this..)
