Thanks all.

Thanks Wolfy for the GEA.

I just wish I could get rid of the vignette, but it is the fall off of the flash gun and I simply don't have the room to move the flahsguns further away from the dish. Will need to see if I can move the table forward in the room without falling through the door Wink

Oh to have a bigger house and a purpose designed studio.

The landscape works better for me Cheryl...the colours remain fairly strong whereas in the portrait version they almost fade to white

That's probably just my dodgy editing Mike. I thought a portrait version might have appeal, but I think the drop needs to be more prominent.

Thanks all.

A few more obtained in this session, but looking for some that are a bit different. I think I prefer the red drops, but I might try blue tomorrow.

The landscape version sits much neater in the frame for me Cheryl,nowt wrong with the portrait version but the actual drop & ripples seem to be a little lost &the ripples are a touch tight in the frame.
I do like the colours you have chosen here.

Love the colours in this one Cheryl. v1 for me as the ripples are too tight in the frame in v2.

Thanks all.

OK I shall abandon the portrait version for now. It is something I have wanted to achieve for a while, but I think you do need to crop in tighter on the drop to make it work. So having spent EVEN longer trying to contain all the ripples within the shot that seems a little self-defeating.

So I shall carry on working on some of the other effects that I am after and see how that goes.

I think the vignette in the landscape version is fine, though I suppose the image would look a little cleaner with it either absent or diminished.

For portrait, I think you do need to get in closer. There's a lot of empty space at the top and bottom and it doesn't look right having just the edge of the ripples cropped. I don't think you can get the whole droplet plus ripples in an effective portrait composition, since the ripples are about twice as wide as the combined height of the drop and reflection.
