It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see. - Henry David Thoreau

For all those who commented and faved my water splashes. It means a lot to me. I'm very proud of this one. It may be my favorite so far.

For this I used a black cast iron pan with water to get the black background. Speedlite 430 EX ll set to lowest power and aimed directly at the drop (about 2 inches away) to illuminate only the drop. Food coloring with a bit of milk in the eyedropper.

Exposure at 1/200

Aperture f16

ISO - 200
