That is a crazy cool shot. Wish I could get excited about the crop, but it just doesn't work for me. Have you considered doing a square crop?

Funny you should mention that. It was brought up over on Flickr, and I fixed it. It looks much better.

Thanks. The setup is a little involved... but I'll give it my best shot. I am using a Stop Shot to control everything, including an electronically controlled valve. This shot was set up using 3 consecutive drops. The liquid in the marriotte siphon was blue colored water thickened with Guar Gum. The water in the drop tank was purple colored water with Jet Dry added. The tank is a custom built 1" deep 24" x 12". For lighting this shot I used 4 Yongnuo YN-560 strobes all fired together by the Stop Shot using PC Cords. 2 of the strobes were on the sides of the tank at roughly 3 & 9 o'clock. There were 2 additional strobes mounted above the tank pointed down. All strobes were set to 1/64th power. If you have any other questions, please let me know... I'll try my best to answer.

Square crop takes it to a whole new level! Very nice, deserving of a print and frame.

Agreed. Do you have a setup pic, OP?

Brilliant shot. I can't see the first but that second one is superb.

This effect is caused when two drops collide. In this case, there were actually 3 drops. If you want to see the effect in action (video), there is a youtube video here: http://www.youtube.com​/watch?v=VoQ0DQpwwHU (external link)

I looked at the image yesterday when you posted and thought it was very good. After watching the video link and understanding what goes into making the shot, I'm really not sure what to say. It becomes mesmerizing to watch and your mind starts to race on what else you can do.

Water drops get very boring very quickly, but this work is on it's own. Easily be a nice piece of framed art in your home.
