Water droplet on polished paint surface. Macrophotograph of a water droplet forming a high critical-angle hemisphere on a surface of polished car paint. The waxy polish of the car paint repels the water strongly from the surface, leading to the high critical angle seen here, and a shape approaching that of a hemisphere. Magnification: x5 when printed at 10 centimetres across.
