Default Moistened,,

I went out for a macro shoot this morning, we've had ALOT of rain the past few days, I was intrigued how the droplets all seemed to congregate on the tips,,

Superb shots, No.2 is my fave. Those water droplets seem to defy gravity, amazing.

i really like the contrast in #1 and how the droplets outline each edge on the leaf, and i just love the light on the droplets in shot #2.

#3 the oof areas are just too funky and distracting, maybe from some topaz?

Thank you all for the comments,, very much appreciated,, Dustin, I agree with your comments,, #3 had the leading edge of the leaf in focus but the angle kinda left alot of it OOF so I tried a little color blast with Topaz on that one

Thanks flutelady and Billbotex,,
Billbo,, the lens I use is a Sigma 105mm macro lens, I use a Canon 430ex off camera mounted on a Novoflex flash bracket and diffuse the flash with a Lumiquest softbox,, no stacking on these images,, all single exposure RAW files,, Thanks again for looking and for commenting !!
