    The orange needs more detail.

    Sunkist Orange too juicy Not enough "veins" to give better texture. Anyway, I try squeezing out some juice and have another go.

    No other orange liao. My ideal fruits for this will be strawberry or kiwi slice. More texture. I'll try again when I have the chance.

    i think you need to get a better knife to cut the orange, cos either that, your pic might be photoshopped to the extend that your magic brush or lasso not doing a good job, check last pic.

    and i doubt its a problem of the orange details, more like the focusing, look more like OOF, cos water sharp, skin of orange soft.

    lol Does it looked PSed? I'm not used to cutting the orange in this shape. It's not really the focusing also, cos I took about 20 shots. I tested focusing above water level, at water level and below water level. The aperture was at F11. The detail was better when I focus, but when flash comes into the picture, the detail of the orange is overcomed. So I think I'll need an orange with more texture, and position the flash away with a PC sync cable.

    maybe the oranged details went off because it is too wet when u took so many shots with the same orange, *taking out of the water n throw it again*

    Maybe a different angle of flash/lighting might bring out more details?

    BTW, how did you trigger a shot? Trial and error?

    I'm using a simple flash, I think it's 1/1k s whereas the shutter is 1/2k. So the flash might be too powerful. Trigger shot is done by release cable, I'm used to taking water droplets, so the orange is quite easy for me

    Oh... I thought you had some sort of complicated motion-sensor-triggered setup.

    For me, a "good" shot comes in every <3 shot for orange.

    This is my water droplet setup

    The orange you take away that wire frame and funnel. Shutter speed for orange is 2k-3k, water is 4k. Hope this will help you.

    Some water droplet experiment I did a couple days back:

    Water on Wood
