A homage to Ben and others - imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. I used an electronic beam breaker of my own design to fire the camera. A turkey baster, clamped in place, full of water, provided the drops of water, breaking a laser beam, falling 3 inches into a glass bowl, with a colour wheel picture beneath it to create the colours. Needed on camera flash - will do better with my new flash guns, just received but not available for this shoot!!!
Post processing using Capture 1 and Adobe CS: crop, increased exposure, cloned out some dirt (must get my sensor cleaned), USM, resize, USM.
Canon EF 100mm macro lens.

This is a nice water shot -- and you captured motion very well ... but there are too many water shots... It became boring. 8

It's really great to have several people submit similar images on a theme. We get to see each artist's individual creativity. I like you choice of composition with the action at the RoT. Your background - the area behind the drop is soft - which really makes the water drop pop out. The white area of the water to the left of the drop is a bit too powerful. Perfect capture at the peak of the action.

Addition of beautiful colors earned this familiar subject matter extra points.

This is very colorful, I like it. Harold Edgerton (the person who first photographed this) would be proud.

Cliche, but still utterly impressive :-) Lovely colors and composition. I'm giving you 6 (would have been 8 if there was less then 5 waterdrop shots). Good luck
