Neptune was the Roman god of the seas, equated to Poseidon (Greek) and Nechtan (Celtic), amongst others. I'd have chosen one of the others, but Neptune has vaguely stellar undertones and I am all for that. Also relevant is the texture of the surface I was dropping water on to; it looks like Space.

Another image taken for a college assignment. I went through scores of attempts before nailing this shot; and even then, it's not as clear as I would like it to be. Still, it's a lot better than anything else I produced in the same (and previous) sessions.

Heh, I was actually quite lucky with this one but yes, it can be a particularly time-consuming and frustrating process. Thank you, once again.
