Kitchen Sink       ©2013 Mepo
Canon EOS REBEL T3i       5th place, 144 points
30s, f14, ISO 100, 558mm, Aperture Priority, Center Weighted Average, flash
 
Post-Processing: Crop, Adjust white balance, contrast, brightness, usm.       Extra Info: This is one photo only. It was handheld, shooting into the kitchen sink. The highlights at the edge the drip are reflections from the background of the the on-camera flash. Others are from the normal kitchen lights.The colours in the water are from an old baking sheet (rusty) used as a backdrop in the sink. Best one out of 60 shots. Will post some outtakes.

    This looks like molten metal - amazing that it's just a drop of water!

    eagle1 - Thank you. I've always wanted to try this and was amazed how easy it was to do.
fc. No curtains - just the on-camera flash.
cookiejar - my feeling exactly - I hope you try it out.
Jade: Thanks. After getting some decent results I realized I wanted something better than clear water, hence the baking sheet to lend some interest.
Fraz: Thanks. No error, it was 30sec. I set the camera on aperture priority but it is new and I didn't realize what shutter speed it had chosen. After the flash I couldn't figure why the result did not show as a preview but luckily was by then holding the camera down pointing at the dark floor - apparently the shutter was still open! I then switched over to manual mode and set the shutter to a couple of seconds.
babysister - Glad you like it.

    Very nice shot.
30s and handheld must be a typo...?

    Always fascinating to see falling water 'frozen' in place.

    when i first saw this i thought a very fast capture, but the 30seconds exposure makes it even better
this is a top five result
did you use second curtain flash on this one ?????

    Well done! This is not easy to do. The colors and bokeh are very nice. I like it.
