Beautiful series. Water drops are something I've always wanted to try.

Incredible work. What shutter speeds were you working with? I have a D70s, my attempts at water drops were barbaric, immediately destroyed. What setup did you use to capture these photos? Outstanding work!

Nice series. Very sharp.
The third one is my favorite because of the nice shape.

Re: water drops...
thank you all.
@dwallace29: nothing fancy... my camera on a tripod, the sb-600 controlled by my d70 put on the table at about 5 o'clock(with the head toward a sheet of white paper), set at 1/8th - 1/16th power, 1/500 at f/8... the hardest thing to do was to get a "device" from which the water ...dropped. I put my camera on a tripod, and tied a fishing line from the door knob to some other furniture, on which i put a small plastic bottle with a hole in it. And i had to add a bit of cotton-wool (??-> the white stuff used to apply , usually, medicinal alchohol on the skin) stuffed into the bottle, so i got a slower water flow...but it was too slow...
Sorry for my bad explanation, but my english is not good at all...
