What a creative image! Who would have thought that dropping a strawberry in water would have thrown up so much water. Or, perhaps the strawberry was poured out with some water? I like how all the drops are so separated. And, I like your idea of using a large tray to hold the water. Well done!   Posted: 06/01/2021 07:32:36

David: The water was already in the tray. Strawberry dropped (by friend) from an approximate height of 18 inches. Camera set to take 10 photos/second and started at the moment the berry was dropped. Water had a small amount of milk in order to increase seeing each drop.   Posted: 06/01/2021 10:31:00

You did a good job of stopping the action. I have tried this before and it didn't go so well. I like the complimentary colors. I would have liked to have seen the water drops a little more in focus, but this is a good effort.   Posted: 06/10/2021 21:20:40

this look like a fun project, I have done similar years ago, and as I recall a not a successful one. Great!   Posted: 06/15/2021 15:15:44
