    Definitely requires a ton of patience and a good setup.

    wow, what did you do to get such a chrome feel to the color of the water? VERY cool..

    The details in 9,10,11,12,13 are spectacular, the curves and lighting are so dramatic... That was a great angle to get some decent shots...

    Yeah, I put a piece of saran wrap on top and then had a tiny bit of soap and then a little sunlight. I bounced the flash a little off the head of the faucet (which is large) to help distribute light.

    Setup was 1 SB-600 flash with diffuser on drop directly overhead for some or right underneath for others and VERY close, handheld as well.

    Obvious 90mm Tamron on D300 on a pod.

    Faucet was constantly dripping.

    Shutter speeds ranged from anywhere from 4 seconds to 1/250th.

    f/22-f/41

    ISO 400

    Yeah, if i've got the light I try to shoot as small as possible with my tamron to get as much DOF as possible.

    I think I'm going to take a stab at some water drops today myself


    Oh, and great shots btw, 3, 14, and 18 are my favorites
