Water Candy by Sortvind Water Candy by Sortvind
I remember the fascination when i first saw a water-drop photo for the first time. I never though that i could ever do something like this. and it turned out waterdrops is something i never get tierd of.
I try different things, but i always come back for a waterdrop-shot now and then.

This is an old shot that i never uploaded before, i just really liked the shape of the drop in this one. it looks like syrup or something, but its only water.

I made a fractal in ultrafractal, printed it out, and sat it up next to the sink, then adjusted it to get the right amount of image in the drop. Found the right shutter speed and light source, and fired!

cleaned away the grain/noise in photoshop, and adjusted the contrast to get a clearer image.

Hope you guys still like my water shots :aww:

I seem to have a new found fascination which macro water shots... I have been commenting on a few. There is something so surreal and beautiful about them. This one is very good.

That looks completely unreal. :wow: I've always been partial to macros of water droplets, but this just throws everything else I've seen out the window.

Beautiful.

Yes, the shape of the drop, and the clarity of the reflection in the drop are awesome. Beautifully abstract and flowing shapes.
