Here is water in two of its myriad forms. Here we have tiny dewdrops on the tips of the pine needles with a foggy background.

Cal,

Pendulous water drops mixed with floating vaporized droplets, two for one. At the risk of being petulant, I would perhaps have wished that the water drops were more pronounced.

Aloha and mahalo

I agree that the depth of field could use some improvement. This was taken handheld. I'm not sure I even had a tripod with me.

Hi Cal, very nice capture. I think selvin was referring to the size of the water drops rather than the lack in DOF (although you could benefit from it or focus on the drops rather than the pineneedles). However, I'm not sure you would be able to find much bigger drops because the pineneedles are skinny, limiting the accumulation of water on itself. The background is just perfect, giving the branch a lot of emphasis.
