Drip drop 3

By gc80uk  
I used a large crystal bowl full to the top with water, I used tin foil around the back of the bowl to brighten the image. Also had a desk lamp at the left hand side if the bowl to brighten the water in the bowl. I had the camera on the tripod and used a triger release. I then used a dropper and just started clicking. I used the camera in macro mode and set it to manual focus, at a speed of 1/10000s at iso 200 with the flash on.

That's so cool! Love how the splash is leaning over, don't think I've seen one like that before. Bit of noise in this image, but well worth a click.

I cannot wait to try this myself---your water looks like it could be mercury or some magical concoction---

Very well captured. The lean on the water adds something different. Click

I've tried capturing these with my p10, but there just wasn't enough light. I see you've managed fairly well, congrats, well done. CLick
