This was an experiment in high-speed photography to capture a single droplet during a rain storm. I don't own a flash or a tripod, so the handheld nature of the image severely limited image quality.
It's interesting to note that, after a droplet has broken away from a surface it's been hanging on (such as the roof of the balcony seen in black in this image) the droplet is always followed by a smaller 'child' droplet. Numerous tests confirmed that the size ratio between the two very consistent, and that the droplets remain perfectly spherical (over the two or so metres that I could track them, in anyway).
This photo could be retouched to look abstractly pleasing (such as removing the "muddy" out-of-focus trees from the bottom left, etc) but I decided to rather leave it in its original state for the time being. Like Analutika ([link]
) it's not meant to be polished, but rather interesting. A lot of effort and experimentation went into this!
