Lovely shot, superb execution !
Only 1/20s... I thought you would need a faster shutter speed..

it's the flash that stops the droplet not the shuter speed :) I put together a short tutorial here if you are interested. [link]

I know it's the flash, but I thought 1/20 is too slow for fast moving drops of water, even with flash. :)
Many thanks for the tutorial !
Cheers !
