    Ah, Gintaras you have a sharp eye. The EXIF data will explain the noise. f3.5, 1/800, focal length 12mm and the ISO 1600. I shot the setup on my balcony in shade and there wasnt enough light to give me the speed I needed so I had to go to ISO 1600. Not ideal but the best I could do under the circumstances. By the way it was 4 separate shots. That was tricky to get them to look like a sequence.

    For waterdrops you could also have used the flash to freeze the waterdrops. It is a bit difficult to avoid flash shadows that way. Takes some trial and error.
    Nice pictures, by the way. Since it is mostly colour noise (chroma noise) in almost black areas, I think you can clear up the noise a little by desaturing it with the sponge tool.

    Bynx, do not shy, you got great images in artistic sequence which i would not be able to pull out. and noise is pretty well controlled. guess those cost you some time, yeah..?

    When I just got my camera I tried these drop shots and did about 300 shots -- all failures. This time I have a better grasp on my camera and I didnt spend any more than 15 minutes on this. As for a flash thats pretty hard to do with macro. My lens was about 5 inches from the drops. Unfortunately my copy of Noiseware puts a grid on it when I try to save. Its a pretty good program to get rid of noise nicely.

    Not really but like I said before I could really care less where you place your photos. I'm not going to get all butt hurt if you posted in the wrong thread.

    Wow Paul that shot of the water drops opens up a whole new world to me. Also interesting angle you shot that at. Thanks so much. Great shot. If they had thumbs here that would be two from me.
