    Kept meaning to have a go at getting some water drip shots but can never bother getting the tripod out but finally got round to it.

    My first efforts.

    Thought for a minute you were having a bit of a medical problem! :eek::devil::rotfl:

    The last one is my favourite, but they are all good.

    Excellent shots.

    For me, 3,8,9

    Hmmm. Looks like I'll be looking at macro lenses or extension rings soon.

    I really want to be able to do this. :smashin:

    Whatever you did for backgrounds and lighting it was well worth the effort Mike. These are great examples of such shots. #2 and #4 for me. Crackers both.:thumbsup:
    I also really like the contrast composition of #6.
    Great stuff.:smashin:

    I'm liking them a lot Mike, especially 5 & 10.

    Spooky thing is that I was going to start a drip thread tonight with an image that came 2nd at my camera club last night (comp topic - water). I hope you dont mind me tagging along.

    I'd like to see 10 at about A1 size, I reckon it would be awsome...

    Thanks, H
