Fun with droplets

So decided to have some more fun with my Macro lens on a lazy Sunday afternoon. These are taken in the kitchen sink, with the faucet dripping periodically, using a SB900 speed light on the remote setting on the right, and using the camera on a tripod using the infrared remote to engage the shutter. The most difficult part was to get the focus right because you have to focus in thin air where there is no droplet to begin with. This took about 300 shots to get 30-40 keepers. Quite pleased with the results, and like all budding photographers - had to get it out of my system. Still want to do the strawberry splashing into a milk bowl sometime - is just too messy for today :)

I like the second picture as it kinda looks like a heart - no?
