While everyone else was watching the superbowl a couple of weeks ago, I was working on the superball.
Here is my take on the subject. I added the starburst in PP for fun.... everything else is genuine

Very nice shot. I do prefer without the starburst.

Beautiful image. The blues are very deep. As for the starburst...I'm fine with it or without it, like you said, just adds a bit of fun to the image

Star or not.. It's great shot.
Can I ask how did you do it?

This is a simple home project that involves a big bowl of water and a water bottle. I just poked a small hole in the bottle that hanged from my tripod (I have two of them) and focused my 200mm f/4.0 macro lens (any macro lens will do, I just happened to use this one so I could be far away from the splash) on a center of the bowl. I triggered my camera (on my second tripod) remotely. That's it. I know that people specializing in this kind of fast motion photography have a lot of expensive equipment, especially when it comes to a water drop collisions etc. But I just used the above mention cheap set up and it worked just fine for me. I just had to take 20 or more shots to find one interesting and this one was interesting to me.
Hope this helped.

Not sure that I dig the starburst and may prefer to have the entire drop in the focus plane. Very nice job! I also don't have high speed equip and often need to take 100+ shots to find a few timed well.

Very nice. I tried to catch drops at the right position by shooting bursts. That never seemed to work. With maybe 20 tries I only got something sort of close to what I wanted. Maybe I need to try again.
