I like the way the colours turned out in this one. Yellow food dye in the drop and blue water in the drip tray. Blue gel on one flash and a red and yellow gel on the other. Pretty much as shot.

    The Time Machine triggers the shutter and I need it open that long for the flash lag to catch the splash when the flash is triggered.

    This pure, adobe, canon, drop, original, class of its own explosion, will not be matched. by anybody, only learned from. thank you Corrie :)

    Corrie White Thanks Corrie for the explanation. It does make sense now. So in other words regardless of the camera's exposure the flash will freeze the action. Your 1/2sec exposure is to give you a larger time window for the flash to trigger. I do not own a flash and a few months back, actually after seeing your pics, I tried to capture water drops and failed miserably because I did not have enough natural light. The ISO was way high and the result disappointing. With such a long exposure, do you reduce non flash light (work in the dark) when you take the shot so you do not have any blurriness on the "splash" before and after the flash triggers?
    What is the time machine? Is it something you have made yourself or did you buy it?
    I find your shots really interesting because they expose something our eyes are working to slowly to appreciate in real life.
    Have you seen a program on TV called "Time Warp" where they do a lot of very slow motion shots?
    Sorry... Long comment... :-)
