How did you manage to do this? :O (Eek)
It looks absolutely fantastic, but it´s hard to believe this is real.
Not meant as offence.=) (Smile) How can you place a droplet on water without
it sinking immediately? OMG

Thank you, and no offence taken what-so-ever.

Trust me though, I am still gobsmacked when I look at it and still haven't removed it from my camera!  Its not a placed droplet as obviously it would sink.  It was a droplet from a stream of droplets, that once in a while skimmed over the surface and I just happened to catch this one at the right time before it made any ripples.  If you look at this one fav.me/d70jsjf , the droplet was caught a little too late (although I still like it), and caused ripples on the surface of the water.  Also the shape of the drop changed with the impact.

I guess I was lucky with this one and wonder whether I'll ever be able to capture a moment like this again lol.  One things for sure, I will keep trying!!

I see. :)
True you were very lucky, but only luck isn´t enough.
You´ve seen it, because you had you eyes open.
So if you search for these special moments you´ll be able
to capture one again. Nod ^-^

This is beautiful! I love the colors and the focus is really good too. Also, you used your frame space really well :nod:

Not sure if you do macro photography often, but if so you should check out %WOW-Macros!

Looks nothing like a water drop. It's like a plastic ball on a mirror. Outstanding work!
