Clint,

That is fantastic. It looks like glass paperweight with a daffodil inside. (is it a daffodil?)

Wow, wow!!! That's fantastic! I know how difficult it is to focus on the flower and not the surface of the water drop. Did you manual focus? Absolutely beautiful, another contest shot! p.s. I like the first one.

Thanks JJ

Saly - it was definitely a manual focus. But the A55 makes it easy. It has a "magnification" factor so you can see exactly where the focus will be. The Sigma 105mm has a very smooth and easy manual focus ring.
