I also have a fascination for photographing 'water in motion' - it is extremely difficult to do in daylight and needs to be done in a darkened room and the motion is frozen by the flash.
In this shot you have done well to capture the 'coronet' but even 1/4000sec is sometimes too slow. A flash on minimum power will last about 1/10,000sec.
If you care to go back a few pages in my gallery you will see quite a few droplet shots and collisions - some of which have a detailed explanation.

I use a Stop-shot controller which operates a solenoid valve which gives you a controlled droplet and triggers the flash a few milli-seconds later.
A warning - photographing water droplets can be a life-time addiction
PS - have a look at Martin Waugh's website and You-tube videos - he has spent years photographing water droplets
Excellent idea and work.
Very good focus, POV, light and brightness.
Well done and framed.
Very good picture, good effect of frozen. Sharpness, colours and DOF also very good.
Nice Work on capturing motion.
You as ever post great stuff, The focus is really good and the colors great :)
