Spiffing ! ...Kevin.....your creativity goes from strength to strength..../...each water drop forming a mini magnifying glass......Most splendid....Dj...
In addition to the creativity you have an amazing attention to detail! Making my teeth hurt looking at it! I suspect that's not how the skittles landed!
I could see the skittle balls, Kevin but couldn't spot the skittles. Is this like my Kingfisher?
They'd all got knocked over?
This is smashin' and I agree with Ken that the attention to detail might be gettin' close to obsessive. Tha'd better watch theesen!
Cheers - Jethro
....... also, full marks for posting this one bigger Kevin it deserves it.
Dave, Ken, and Jethro,
Thanks for the comments on this one ... Kind of abstract, innit?
I set this up at least half a dozen times before I got this one. The water drops were a pain in the arse!
Note to self (next time): make the skittles fall in a diagonal pattern, raise the glass a couple of inches, use a water dropper that makes smaller, convex-like droplets (instead of small flat puddles), and go get a macro lens ...
I vaguely recall a suggestion of using glycerin as a modifier to enhance water droplets, can't remember what the glycerin was supposed to accomplish though. It also may just be a figment of.....well......what was that I was talking about....
But ohh the power of the internet, this is just the first of many returns from a Google search (check the comments)
I think it makes it more drinkable. That what the Austrians thought anyway!
I guess you could also vary the syrface tension of the glass - use liquid detergent one way and wax the other. Both will buff to a high clear finish and leave no residue but 'program' the surface.
The glycerin sounds more fun and then you can drink the water!
Just my 2 cents, i did something like this but used oil in a bowl of water with the bowl over a colorful pillowcase. The mind is a Great thing. Oyea, i really like this shot too. Happy New Year to All!!
