I was a little pressed for time, so I lucked out and got a few decent water drop pictures out of a batch of ten. The red drop is a drop of food coloring. In PS: +1.2eV, curves to remove color cast, color balance, increased saturation, crop, median cut, resise, USM. There was no spot editing in this photo.

This is great! You have a true mastery of PS! I'm still working on it. Very nice crystal clear shot. And I love the placement of the drop. (red IS my favorite color)

I like that kind of pics: they give us opportunity to notice the things that last too few... :) But it's delicious! Mother nature is a real artist :)

Awsome shot, congrats on the 8th place. I had an idea of doing this once, it's cool so see it actually done.

Awsome shot! Expect this to be in the top 10 or top 5. Wow, only one take with each drop (unless multi-shutter burst). Great composition.
09/26/2004 08:25:48 PM
this is my favorite drop shot out of all of them. It's also the most creative drop I've seen in a while!
Good Job!!!

an interesting take on a highly overdone concept
09/26/2004 08:10:10 AM
What a great idea to use the red dye to makes this a unique photo! Well done.
09/26/2004 03:18:00 AM
Clever idea to drop red ink (or food color) into water. Really adds interest to this drop photo.
09/25/2004 10:31:35 PM
I keep coming back to this shot. Focus is crisp and I love the composition. Excellent, excellent work.
09/24/2004 08:24:28 AM
one of the best water drop shots by far.
09/23/2004 11:16:05 PM
I'll say it again, I love the water drops, each unique. This is particular grabbing with the color, and crop. The main drop on top really pulls me in...great shot.
09/23/2004 07:43:53 PM
Wow! 10!
09/23/2004 03:26:04 PM
Hope that was food coloring! It's nice to see several variations of the now infamous water-drop shot - it shows individual creativity and thought patterns. Using this technique - you only get one try it appears - so, given that - your timing is exquisite.

Brilliant pic, just brilliant
09/23/2004 12:23:29 PM
A nice bit of color contrast for a hackneyed subject. Very good capture of the drop and I like the water tones as well.
09/23/2004 09:29:09 AM
pritty nice setup of an common shot. :)

09/22/2004 04:11:43 PM
Fantastic and very original! I'll bet this pic does well for this challenge.
09/22/2004 04:00:59 PM
Great variation on a theme - my submission is another variation! Well executed. Clean bowl for each shot - loads of patience. . .
09/22/2004 04:11:52 AM
either you got this right the first time, or you had to do a lot of emptying and refilling.
09/22/2004 12:29:33 AM
Should make the water (not the red) less green. Tweak the blue a little to make this better. Good twist on this however.
09/21/2004 09:48:38 PM
oh wow now that's awesome
09/21/2004 07:06:55 PM
Very nice variation and a deftly execution. The red gives it that extra. Bumping up.
09/21/2004 06:56:58 PM
Love the use of red in this one.
09/21/2004 09:27:56 AM
Great idea, gives the classical waterdrop a new look. Good job!
09/20/2004 11:23:56 PM
great shot...I bet this took a little trial and error. (best water drop of the bunch IMO)

While there is a significant number of water drop shots in this challenge, I think this is one of (if not the) best of the bunch. Great composition and color, and the clarity is superb.

Perfect crown, Harold Edgerton (the inventor of that photograph) would have been proud.

awsome image...I was not big on the water splash thing...but your twist on the matter makes yours stand apart from the rest.

This is a really nice take on a popular theme. The idea is nice and the composition and motion capture are really outstanding. Great job.
