I didn't understand what it was till I read your post. Can't see the water or the drops against those colorful patterned backgrounds (bowls). Use a monotone background and crop it to direct attention to the droplet.

Thanks Mayavi, you are quite right. I too thought of it , but couldnot arrange a quick setup of dark bg + dark surface for water.
It was all an off the cuff idea and i immediately experimented . Next time around i will definetly come up with better result.

Mind-blowing.
Can you let us know some tech details on how you shot this. The water droplets look so clear!

Thanks guys,
I got the click with my point and shoot camera, a Sony DSC H50. No Telephoto Lens used, just the stock one.
Here are the details:
Aperture : f/2.7
ISO Rating : 400
Focal Length: 78.0 mm
Metering mode: Pattern

Here is another one,an HDR. This was clicked at the Famous Pier 39 in San Francisco, the place is crowded by fur seals very often. And for all those who think they are cute and cuddly...well they are aggressive, very noisy and very very smelly!
