Try Something New Tuesdays--Water Drops

It's the second Tuesday of the month and that means it's your last chance to try something new and link up!  Don't have a clue what I'm talking about?  Let me explain...
The first Tuesday of every month is Try Something New Tuesday.  That means you should grab your camera or photo editing software and try something new with it.  It's an excuse to get out of your comfort zone.  Anything goes as long as you've never tried it before.  Failures are welcome--after all, this is the first time doing what you're doing!  If you remember on the first Tuesday of the month, you can link up right away.  If not, the linky is open until midnight (central time) of the second Tuesday of the month.  Link up any time during the week.  Or if you're like me and want a Tuesday meme on an actual Tuesday, link up on the second Tuesday of the month :)

I've been extremely busy lately and didn't get to try anything new last week.  This week I challenged myself to get water drop photos.  I've always thought they were cool.

These are the best of the hundreds of pictures I took!  Taking these took a lot of time and patience!

I think it was worth it!  How about you?

I tried a bunch of different techniques from a bunch of different Google searches on how to photograph water drops but found the most helpful one here.

That tutorial was the simplest and I actually got my best drops when I followed that technique (believe it or not!).  Too see the raw, unedited (i.e. un-cropped) versions of these photos plus a few bloopers, visit my Facebook Page (give me some time to get them posted later in the day though).

Ok, now, what have you tried this week?  Grab the Try Something New Tuesday button from my "Grab My Buttons" link above and link up in the linky below.

I've tried to get water drop shots before, and none of them have looked this good. I like how you used different colors under the water. I like the second blue one best!

Ohhh, love the water drop shots! I have always thought this looked cool as well. I will try something new tomorrow and post it here!

Those do look so amazing! I'm finally getting back in the swing of things, so I will be joining you next month for the challenge. Thanks for all your help. I've enjoyed reading all your posts.
