Martin Waugh's exceptional high-speed photography of falling water droplets made choosing the 10 images here extremely difficult. He achieves these amazing shots by varying not just the size, speed and position of the drops but also the color, viscosity and surface tension of the liquids to create his original liquid sculptures.

Capturing the droplets in motion requires accurate timing and release on his digital camera equipped with flash. He does use Photoshop to clean up the backgrounds and balance the colors, but other than that, the shapes and composition are true to life.

The leg-shaped droplet, while not strictly a gravity-generated image, is still a clever manipulation of the water droplet! Stats for High-Speed Droplet Photography Trending: Older & Warm
