    Aaron I set the tap running drop by drop into the cup and started taking the shots, about a second in between each drop.

    Sweet Paulo! That first one reminds me of the water alien in The Abyss. :D

    Cheers,

    I like the third one in particular. How did you light them, Paulo?

    Anyway, must go as I have this sudden urge for a pee. :lol:

    Some of them you can actually notice the cup rim which are not the best shots.
    Haven't really tested this technique since I tried these shots for the first time.
    I have to dedicate more time to my photography but there are only so many hours in the day!

    Hope you guys enjoy them :)
