Nice droplet captures. I found a site once where a guy specialized in water droplets. He had a whole section on images displayed in the drop. The one that blew me away was the world in a drop. He had a map or globe set up behind the droplet path. He fired a flash at the map / globe. The earth was perfectly contained and displayed in the water drop. He also did the Pepsi logo, and a few other well know symbols. I think I remember reading that he boiled sugar water to make the droplet more stable and larger. I hope to see some more of your droplet images. Nicely done.

Thx^^ I'm using a dripping tap so sugar water is out. Unless I try jumping droplets^^

HSS. I can't seems to get flash frozen with Pentax AF-360FGZ or Metz 48AF-1...
There's always motion blur.

Very nice flash work. I really like the saturated colors and DOF on the first shot. #2 has some great sharpeness in the droplets too.

Great shots!
