Excellent, looks like you've pretty much got the technique nailed on the water drops. Well done!

Now it's just a case of experimenting a few times with the amount of water, height of the source, position of the flash etc.

Looks really nice. I like way small droplets from it are acting almost like leading lines towards the main event. :)

The thing I found when doing water drops is the depth of the water, and the height of the cup makes quite a difference to the quality of the splash. There's something to do with the water surface tension that if you get the height of the drop just right you don't get too many little drops breaking off the main one. A bit of judicious use of the healing brush soon cleans up most of them though :-)

Thanks yes I will keep trying. The flash I could get to work off camera so ended up with it on my camera. I will keep trying though.

Did you get your triggers? If so, what was the problem, maybe we can help!
