I don't use a laser module/gate, so it's nearly impossible to catch the very moment the coloured droplet (dropping from a height of about 12 inches) just barely touched the green liquid underneath and caused a tiny ripple before going through the water surface. I know the image is not perfectly in focus but I was thrilled to capture something as unusual as this.

Ah, IreneM -
I sensed this might be one of your new experiments! I like it!

You've inspired me to start working with splashes and drops by the way. My wife told me to take it outside, and to stop making so much of a mess!

Great timing on that capture. Do you normally use a laser to trigger the exposure, or just hand time it and pick from the best?

Nice shot. Love the colours. I should imagine it took a lot of work to produce.

The lack of sharpness lets an otherwise superb image down. Is it motion blur or focus do you think? I think it may be focus, the ripple in the droplets shadow looks quite sharp it still may be motion blur as that part of the image has the lowest velocity from the cameras view point.

Crazy! To catch it just hovering over the surface. Looks like it has eyes too. only improvement I can see is sharpness.

Very cool capture - just wish it were a shade sharper.

Very interesting shot, more for the "eerie face" on the marble or whatever the round object is, than the rippe effect in the water. I like it!

Sorry, but nothing seems to be in sharp focus, and that really hurts an image like this.

I LOVE this photo! The selling point for me is the detail in the drop!
