    Hey Santosh,

    “Every second counts..” – your lines – you made me believe this statement.. indeed one of the best shots i have seen so far.

    Dear Readers,
    I had once talked abt capturing the droplets, i had by then seen couple of his pics, its indeed a great joy to see your ideas captured and being presented to you..

    Santosh, Keep sending such pics and always keep inspiring !!

    Those photos are awesome. I always said you should persue a new career! I’ve still got the flower picture you gave me when you left St. Louis. One day when you are a rich and famous photographer I will sell it and retire!!

    Okay, maybe I am just a little Jealous. Very nice pictures and a great WEB site. To be able to make so much out of so little (a single drop), I am impressed.

    Wow! what can I say? Absolutely fabulous, amazing,… After a gap of few years it’s very rewarding to be able to enjoy your photography again. I think you should change your career so that we can see more of such wonders. 😉

    Keep it up. Waiting for more pictures with such a creativity!!!
