A real WOW shot, Jared! Nice work! #2921244

Jared Stillwell June 20, 2006

Thanks to both of you! Gary, this was my first time using a macro lens for this type of shot; needless to say, I fired out probably 100 before I could get the drop that last instant before it hit. I did however get a few nice crown formations, and splashes in the process.

Thanks again! #2921319

f5 1/60 two flash' set up in my sink, on a green plate I bought on clearance at Target. This was taken using a Nikon 105mm Micro lens. I captured the drop just milliseconds before it joined the puddle!
