Default FZ35 - water droplets in the fog

Some of you may recall, I posted some images of water droplets on leaves of Bleeding Heart plants. Those shots were done after a rain.

Last night, we had rain, and this morning fog. I found these same leaves with water droplets, like before, but mini-droplets from the fog as well.

Here are a few of the shots. I'm really intrigued by how droplets form at the tips of the leaves, and along the edges. Some of the detail of the edge droplets may not show well, but do show clearly on my full-screen image.

These were all done in P mode, 80 ISO, AWB, Macro AF. Some were done with EC at 0, others with -1/3. I used bracketing for three shots. I think most of the ones I picked were with -1/3 on top of -1/3, so an effective -2/3. Limited PP, with limited cropping, if at all.

Sorry, if these seem duplicate from previous posts. But, I thought the fog/rain outcome made the images even more interesting.

I love water droplets. They can reflect light and other background things so nicely. I love the way drops are hanging on to the leaf tips!
