I know this has been done to death, but I hope you don't mind, I am still learning and I guess all of us have to try the water-drip-stop-motion sometime... :) This is my first attempt.

Took it from my kitchen sink. Water in a fish tank, put a blue pillowcase under the fish tank to give the water a blue color. Put broccoli sprouts in the water. Set camera on Macro setting, used flash on camera and fast shutter speed. Took about 100 shots. Found this little mushroom shaped splash was the best.

Ran Noise Ninja, flipped horizontally, cropped, levels, brightness/contrast, color balance, Hue/saturation, shadow/highlight, smart sharpen, burned areas of a few background areas to bring out subject a little more. Saved for web

Congrats on your top 50 finish. Really felt this should have been higher because it was so refreshing. One of my all time favorites.

8 - Nice image. Good play on the title, which for those who didn't take time to study it longer than 2 seconds, would likely be lost on. A more refined crop, especially top right corner, make this even better in my opinion. Like the colors and clarity - good stop motion and 'texture'. Perhaps a few sprouts closer to the surface for added effect and element(s), who knows.

That is cool. It really reminds me of a water mushroom. Great shot. A 10 and a favorite.

A bit of a cliche around here in dpc but it is so hard to criticise a great example like this.

Clever capture of the spouting water. The background vegetation I'm not sure about.

Very refreshing shot. Love the star sparkle and the blue in water. The composition is perfect. Great usage of the thirds and crisp focus.

This is good, but would have like to seen it cropped tighter to emphanise the water droplet.....Maybe a portrait style, taking away the left side of the image.....
