    I managed to take these photos on the balcony with my Sony Nex-5n and a manual Helios 44m-4.
    The watch is placed on a plate in the sun. About 5min photography and 10min in PS.

    Critics is appreciated.

    The watch is a Seiko Sumo

    Thanks to all of you.
    This means that something is right. I'm a beginner so its nice to know that the path I'm taking is in the right direction.

    Oh, I feel the pressure here.. Maybe not advertising but I must say that the result shocked me as well. I felt that I had something coming and when the pictures came up on the computer I couldnt belive what I saw. That sharpness on a fast moving sequence with a manual lens, I didint expect that, and I did drip the water at the same time I pushed the camera trigger :)

    Only critique is I would love to see a bit more of the watch face.

    I'd be interested in knowing more about your setup, very cool shots.

    Well, nothing fancy at all.

    Had the camera on a table faced towards the watch. The watch was placed on a plate and I started poring some water on the watch from a glass. No flashes or anything, I just had the sun as light source. No remote or anything either, used the shutter button as usual.

    Hope that answered your question :)

    lol yeah that is pretty straight forward, cool, very simple setup but the results are very nice.
