Saly, do you think the lc55 can work for wildlife shots?

drop - I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "wildlife". You need to get to within 18 inches (~50 cm) of your subject to use the close-up lens effectively. So any wildlife you can get to that close would work. Works great for insects and reptiles.

I like the middle one, for the sheer number of drops you have got in absolute focus. I know how difficult it is to shoot droplets like these, particulary with a close up lens that makes the depth of field shallow which again means you need to get your subject(s) well aligned within that field. Good work, Saly.

Thank you both, I love taking these shots but it can be extremely frustrating. Lots of trial and error.

Now thats the way to do it the drops are great and the reflection as well... I like # 2 and the way it sparkles very much! See it dont need to be a diamond that makes a girl smile its the picture it makes!

Saly-

You have to understand that photos like that are pretty much hit and miss. All in all you did an excellent job.
