First attempt at back lighting the water and droplets using a frosted panel and Wilton icing colour dyes to get the colour intensity in the droplet.
Yellow coloured water/milk into clear water, a black acrylic sheet positioned in the bottom of the tray
Canon 40D and 100mm macro lens, full frame uncroppped image
1/10 sec@ f16 iso 100
Water/milk droplets delivered via a Stopshot controlled solenoid valve. Camera and flashes triggered by a IR beam and StopShot programmable trigger.
580Ex @ 1/128 on the left aimed at the droplet on the rhs a front silvered mirror bouncing some light back into the front of the droplet.
580Ex @ 1/128 positioned behind a frosted acrylic panel with a blue gel on it at the rear of the droplet
Excellent shot.I like this a lot,nice one.
This is without doubt, the best water droplet shot I have seen IMO.
Even the small droplets are symmetrical. AMAZING !!!!!!..........Trev

Fabulous shot perfect looking water splash
Exceptional shot with stunning clarity and pin-point timing.
I have just come back to look at this image again, and can't believe that it has only had 29 votes!!! This image has captured a moment in time, probably never to be repeated again.
I don't understand how the voting works on EPZ when some images, which I regard as just record shots, e.g. a building, a plain landscape without atmosphere or something else to make it stand out from the ordinary, regularly get votes in the 100's.
I can only presume that many members vote for just their chosen ones, and not the merits of an image..........
I have to say this is a spectacular shot, worth a lot more attention.
I agree with Trev above me.
Totally amazing image, congrats on the EC but deserves a lot more votes
Thank you for your comments and the EC was a nice bonus
please remember if you need clicks to satisfy your ego then really you should be re-evaluating what's really important I know the system but I dislike playing the game lol
Super, super, super! Thanks for the comments on my one yesterday
Wow You really do have a very impressive portfolio
Wow, this is amazing! thanks for sharing
Amazing capture, awesome work!
I am amazed at how you got this shot Great Job
Many Congrats, that is superb.
Brilliant shot. I can't believe it was as long as a tenth of a second. I would have been trying much faster shutter speeds. Just shows you learn something every time you visit this site. Thanks. I wonder how many attempts I'd need with just a remote release to trigger the camera and flashes to get anything remotely as stunning.
