    Hi all-

    Today I was bored, so I decided to take pictures of water droplets. Here are five of some of the better ones I took. Constructive criticism is welcome :)

    quality seems pretty good. But why is the third picture so blueish?

    Thanks! I used my D90 with a 70-300mm lens and a SB-600 speed light. I should have taken a picture of my setup, but what I did was I got a black dish with water and then I got a tripod and taped a bag of water and poked a pinhole in the side to get a steady steam of droplets of water. Then for the colors, I had a piece of paper behind the whole setup with different colors (I used blue and a blue green gradient I made quickly on photoshop), and I used the SB-600 to bounce the flash off of the paper to illuminate the water in the different colors.

    Probably because I used a blue piece of paper to bounce the flash off of and the white balance was set to "Incandescent"

    Really awesome pics! Looks like something a show called "time warp" would do. :D

    Cool. I had a stab at this a while back. Added some milk and food colouring to the water...

    Hey, great work! Could you upload the original photo of the first image please? I'd love it as a wallpaper on my iMac.

    The first one would be an amazing picture if both the droplets were in focus. Although, I can imagine that'd be a teeny bit harder to do :p

    I really wish that I could have gotten both of them in focus, but like you said, it would have been just a wee bit harder :D
