What is this obsession with water droplet shots? And why did this win? It looks so FAKE, and the pun isn't much of a stretch now is it.

Thanks for the votes, favorites and great comments.

A couple of people wondered how it was done. Basically all I did was rig an eye dropper with a syringe to control the drop. I then set it up in front of a picture of an eye on my monitor and positioned it the way it looked best and shot it (I used one of my clamp lights turned upside down as a holder).
12/26/2005 03:51:32 PM
hint - its not a real eye :P
