Hi Graham, they're nice shots. I like the effect of the water in the 1st pic, it kind of makes the water look like that clear gel, like hair gel.

Thanks Mark! I never thought of it like that.

Do you have any advice on how to avoid these shadows? I tried firing the flash directly and you can see the results. I tried using a sheet of paper as a reflector but it made the shadows more distinct. I'm guessing that a bounced flash would cause the faucet to cast a shadow instead?
