I think this is my eleventh drip shot entry this year! (I must get out more).

Seven drops of water with Yellow food colouring were used to create this, the green comes from the liquid in the bowl at the bottom.

6 Yongnuo 560 IV's were fired via a YN560tx controller 498 milliseconds after the first drop was released by the MJKZZ controller, from memory the drops fell at 0, 10 (these created the up jet) then 350, 365, 367, 368 & 388 intervals.

Excluding the top drop this is approx 3.5 inches tall.

Hello from the Critique club

An appealing image that meets the challenge

Truly an artistic result. I'm sure a lot of patience was needed to get this high standard image of a technically challenging subject, thanks for all the technical detail. The focus is nice and sharp throughout with the action frozen in sharp detail. The colours add to the appeal, the way they have separated with the little yellow fringe is just great. The only thing I can question about it is whether it might have been better to exclude the top drop, I think I would have preferred it without but thats just my personal opinion.

I'm sure you had a lot of fun doing this if not only from the many different shapes you will have encountered. In any other challenge this would have been on the front page but well done anyway.

I know some people will call this cliché, I know how hard it is to do and I really like it. The focus is great as is the exposure.

Great job. That is one of the best water drop shots I've seen.
