I really like this photo. Verycool.:-)



I wish the colors weren't quite so pale, though.

Great shot, Sam. I think it's a bit over exposed but the clarity of those water drops compensates for it. You could probably benefit from a polarizer to reduce reflection on the leaves. Do you mind sharing the details of your equipment (camera and lens)? Thanks.

Despite the slight overexposure, the impact is there. The water drops provide all the drama we need. They look so solid almost as if they were glycerin rather than water.

Great job.

Thanks for the comments. Luckily this was taken in RAW so Here are the corrections.

(20D, Canon 17-85usm-is @ 85mm, P mode)

Is this better?

Oh yeah! Definite improvement. The water droplets really stand out in this one and the saturation is much improved. Good work.
