I know, it has been done before but not by me. I used my breambreaker to help with the repetition, firing a single 580EX flashgun, above and to the left of the splash.
Post processing was minimal, crop for geometry, just a bit of cloning out some distracting shadows and a couple of water droplets which whizzed by too fast for the flash! Curves, smart sharpen, resize, save for web, etc.

The color really makes this one special.

The strong colours take away from the stopped motion.. maybe different background would be more effective..

This liquid drop has a nice caldera and defined rim, but the checkerboard overpowers the liquid.

very thumb friendly, I like how the drop picks up the green reflections

I know this wasn't easy to get, but if only the splash could've been centered on the pattern ... !

The water is astoundingly good - but the background is too overpowering.

I don't think I ever want to vote on another drop shot again - far to many of those around. Sorry...
