Default Water - Daisy drops

I've been trying for quite some time to get this type of a shot. I finally found everything lined up perfectly in my garden several weeks ago. I'm really happy with this shot, it's not staged!



p.s. Sorry I've been absent a lot, I've been doing a lot of business traveling lately.

G'day Saly

Love it - esp as you have found it in-the-wild

Too many books & mags show magical images like this - but without admitting that it has been staged indoors

Well done
Phil

Incredible! This is really a fabulous picture - I've tried to shoot something like this in the wild and have never managed one where it worked so well. I'm in total awe.

Wonderful shot. My only suggestion would be to crop it horizontally, removing some of the foreground and background blur. Well done!

Spectacular shot Saly - I am in awe of it. I keep trying to get this kind of shot as well, but to date no such luck. The only other shot that I have seen like this was in one of the National Geographic photo books .......... and I wondered if it has been set up (like some of the others have commented above).

Thank you so much everyone for your kind comments!!

Walter - I tried cropping this many ways and ended up with this, but I'll try again for sure. Thanks!
