Shining Pearl

Can't sleep last night as I was recovering from a two-day third-shift (22:00 - 06:00) workday (hehehehe..) I went back on my "Water Drop Project" and try to get some water drop photos again but this time was better prepared than the first time.

It's recommended that a fast lens and a (remote) shutter release (cable) should be used. Well, I just recently got the Canon EF 50mm 1.8 II as a gift. I also was able to receive a shutter release cable last year. With new arms I went on again to shoot water drops.

So far so good. I've had a higher success rate in getting "real" water drops than my previous attempts. Though I had a higher success rate, I had some difficulty getting sharp photos as I was working on very shallow depth-of-field (DOF).

I was lucky enough to get this one shot and I feel it's the best of all the other keeper photos I've got. The other water drops were quite common-looking and nothing very special except this one I'm sharing here:
