These are my first drop art photos that include a reflection of the entire formation. Whereas I had recently been using a margarita glass as my catch basin, a much larger basin was needed to include the reflection. I bought a black plastic serving tray that works perfectly.

Notice that many times the reflection is more revealing about shape and details than the upper part.

All formations are the result of two drops colliding with each other.

It seems that you are really having fun with your photography in those corona days Mike. All very good work. My fav is #3. I can see some vignette-like dark corners in the images . I would prefer the set without them.

Thanks, Binnur!

I don't suppose you'll be glad to know that I acutally lightened some of them during post-processing. :ROFLMAO: Seriously, my impression from the drop art photos I've seen made by others is that most people don't like vignettes with this type of subject. For me, they give the image more depth. Especially in this case when the top half of the image is reflected in the bottom half, displaying vignettes at the top and bottom add to that feeling of everything being reflected. Just my way of seeing this stuff.
