Abstract Water Droplets by tylerscottsmith Abstract Water Droplets by tylerscottsmith
In this picture, I made a setup consisting of a paper cylinder, M&M's at the bottom on the black surface, and a piece of clear plastic with tiny water droplets placed randomly on it. I'm quite pleased with the effect. :-)

I referenced your photo in an argument. Part one of the argument can be viewed here: [link]
I hope you don't mind.

I don't mind at all. I actually read through the entire thing, it was quite entertaining and well thought out.

Good idea! I just grabbed whatever I had laying around the house, haha.

I agree, it would have been better with a smooth piece of plexiglass. Also, I just used a paper cylinder to put the piece of plastic on, but if I used some kind of plastic or glass cylinder, I probably could have put more lighting along the sides and gotten rid of the white borders on the drops. I'll have to try that next time. Thanks for the constructive criticism. :-)

Very cool idea mate! Nice work! If you could get a clear piece of glass with no scratches it would amp this image up even more imo..but that is just me. I don't know your set up, but is there any way to get a light between the candy and the glass/plastic to brighten it up even more? Just a thought? It might make the droplet images even pop out more...I would definitely play around with this concept and set up some more to maximize such a cool and creative concept! :D

This is really cool. The refractions are nice and sharp, and I like the texture the plastic makes.

Really? I was worried the texture in the plastic would cause too much of a distraction. Thank you for being so kind. :-)

I think the colors are so vivid that the texture just ends up being interesting.

Eh, I took the brown ones out. So now you won't be distracted by thoughts of chocolate :-P

That is sooo awesome. I love how the formation of the m&ms is reversed in the droplets.

Thanks! I thought it was a pretty cool effect, also. This is my first experience with water droplet macros, and I've already fallen in love with it. :-)
