    Like it! One of the nicest waterdrops I´ve ever seen. The gradient – technique is as well great. But you should use RGB-mode in step 1, instead of grayscale, if you want to use the hue/saturation feature ;). Otherwise some people might get stuck in step 3. Anway great tutorial. Thanks and I will subscribe to the rss!
