    I've wanted to try this out for a long time. Lots of trials to get the drops in perfect focus and time it correctly. GX1 with Leica 45 macro.

    blue_droplet1.
    DMC-GX1    ---    45mm    f/10.0    1/30s    ISO 160


    blue_droplet2.
    DMC-GX1    ---    45mm    f/10.0    1/30s    ISO 160


    blue_droplet3.
    DMC-GX1    ---    45mm    f/10.0    1/30s    ISO 160

    I did finally got to go through all the images (the first set was from a quick glance through), and I found quite a few more that I liked:

    blue_droplet4.
    DMC-GX1    ---    45mm    f/10.0    1/30s    ISO 160


    blue_droplet5.
    DMC-GX1    ---    45mm    f/10.0    1/30s    ISO 160


    This one is my favorite of all of them, I think:
    blue_droplet6.
    DMC-GX1    ---    45mm    f/7.1    1/30s    ISO 160


    blue_droplet7.
    DMC-GX1    ---    45mm    f/7.1    1/30s    ISO 160

    Nicely done. I haven't tried any water droplet photography with my GH2. I used to try it with my P&S ... results were usually less than impressive.

    Wonderful pictures Jordan, thanks for posting these...! Never had much interest in macro myself until now but shots like these make me reconsider...:)
