Taken with kit lens 18-55. 1/200 with built in flash. F5.6. On tripod.

Not sure if its my eyes or the monitor, it looks kinda soft.

Suggestion to improve sharpness and C&C welcome.

Try shooting at F9-11 and remember to switch off IS, mirror lock and use a remote(if possible) when mounted on a tripod. Can also do manual focus too

thx to both bros for the tips will try again. tried about 20+ shots. yes used manual focus (perhaps thats y it turn out soft). Will turn off IS.

How to mirror lock btw? Do you mean using live view (object no longer visible thru viewfinder)? Im using a 500D.

#1 and 3 are nice. :thumbsup:

Just a suggestion: maybe you can go lower (as in closer to water level) so that you can see the shape of the water crown better?
Oh, and try dripping dyes too. :)

Yes, was thinking to shoot from that angle, but limited time for the set up. Next try perhaps. Dripping dyes as in colored water?

may I ask how to set the backgroud? I tried use a bow but maybe it's too small -_-
I used a blue plastic cup (about the size of a coke can). its shot at 55mm. You gotta get pretty close to the subject but careful of water splattering to your lens.
