H2O (50mm + 12mm)

This one was submitted for a contest, the theme was water.

Have always wanted some extension tubes, but never got myself to buy some... Hmmm...
Like the shots, that's very shallow DoF in the first shot! The angle on the second one is not ideal, great idea though!

Thanks guys. Actually I shot the second one the other way around. I flipped it 180° in to get this different angle and "dripping from ceiling" illusion.
