Dripping Tap

I set up the studio lamp in front of the sink, set the tap on a slow drop and putting a CD at the back to catch the colours in the light I set the camera up, using a daylight bulb in a little lamp I moved it about until I got the light in the right position to reflect the colours from the CD and shot away I was lucky to catch this drip. The only work I have done has been to convert in RS from raw and process it in PS.
If you look you can see the CD in the drops:)

Nice shot. I've tried getting a picture of a drop and got absolutely nowhere after hours.

I also tried this some weeks back in exactly the same way - sink and light - but I obviously needed the CD!! Superb photo! Viv
