My first time trying water drops -- kind of fun, but a lot of work to do it right. Set up a drip from a sandwich bag with a small hole poked in it. Used off camera flash firing into contruction paper strips to make the colors. Took hundred and hundred of shots!!!

- Exposure (I kept changing setting and ended up way under exposing the shot)
- White balance
- Color boost
- Slight Vignette

PP in Gimp
- Clone/heal lots of dust and extra crap

I am a newbie, but I really like this photo,if the rings in the water were more of a fire orange I would have voted higher. Good luck I do like it

Would have been better with orange colors under the splash.
