Shot this Christmas eve morning while everyone was asleep. Just turned the sink on enough to get a steady dripping. Used a flash camera left triggered with a cactus v5. Critiques welcome.

Fantastic capture of the water, I think the rest works as well but I'd clone out the blob near the bottom-left and maybe a little of the right side.

The drops are nice and crisp so you could go even further and crop out everything except the drops on the yellow background for a cool abstract.

I hadn't even paid attention to that blob at the bottom, need to train my eye better. Thank you for the compliment.

Thanks Spenz, I'll have to check that out sometime. If you have something specific in mind feel free to chop it and re post it.

cropped drops

sure...I was already playing...I pumped up the contrast a little too. Your lighting gives a good, graduated tone to the background.

I very much like this. I was a little worried that cropping so tight would pull out the context of the picture but the reflection in the big drop still paints a picture of the setting.

Thanks for that.
