I've watch this thread from day one. Time to contribute :D

There is a little bit more to than just setting up and shooting. I posted a blog to detail what I did to get the final image HERE (external link).

Great shot! And great blog post!!! I have to get some Rain-X and a Macro lens to try it!!

I would like to say thanks for everyone that posted their setups. It definitely provides for an idea pool!

Absolutely stunning image.

One of my favourites on POTN in a long time.

You should submit that to 1x.com

Great Shot Robbug!!!!!!

I also went to your blog to see how this was achieved and thank you for explaining it in detail. I am not into macro at all but maybe one day I just might give it a go :).

Karim.

Playing around with my new YN 560's and RF 603's :D

This is my second attempt at water drop photography - it took about 800 or so tries, but I managed to get a collision just using an eye dropper!

I meant to mention that there is a thread about the 24mm TS-E lens: https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=701862

Manson, you have too much time on your hands! LOL. Great capture.

Thanks for all the kind responses :) I have enjoyed this thread quite a bit and have used it to keep me motivated to try different setups.

Manson - that is an outstanding shot not to mention difficult to obtain. Your setup photo doesn't do it justice in the sense of how really difficult it is to get a double collision drop. I have yet to succeed myself. Either you have to spend a lot of time to get it right or a lot of money to get it done right with minimal shots.

Great shot, timing and patience. That's about as perfect a collision as you can get.
