    Very nice capture, Ron!
The big water drop really adds an extra 'umpf' to this image. Nicely done!

Thank you very much, Mike. I have found the secret to getting good sharp water drip shots is to use manual focus, and then take lots of pictures. I snapped about 20 in order to get this shot!

Thank you so much everyone! To say I am stunned would be an understatement. I am deeply honored to have one of my photos selected as a first prize winner. I am so happy to have found BetterPhoto, and I value all of my BP friends more than having my photo selected as a monthly contest winner. Your support and encouragement, not to mention your own outstanding photos, motivate me to want to be a better photographer! So thank you one and all!!

How the heck did you get this perfect shot?!! Amazing!! Was this hand held or tripod and was it luck to get this huge drop? How many practice shots? Just curious? I LOVE this! Awesome and unique background also.
