This is, quite simply, a drop going through a bubble. Without any fancy equipment or a timer, all done by hand. I blew bubbles in a pan and dropped water from a dropper bottle onto them while pressing the shutter. It took a bit of practice before I got what I wanted!

Cleaned up in Photoshop (removed scratches and marks from the pan), coloured in Lightroom (added the blue and green tints).

Prints of this are available on my website:
