Hi,

Well it was to hot outside so I got out the dcr-250 and had a bit of a play.
FZ10, raynox dcr-250 close-up lens, f8, 1/60s, iso50, 5x zoom and sunpak 383. I diffused the flash rather than my usual bounce method and the results seem good. I had to shoot this in portrait as the flash wasn't illuminating the drops in landscape, I then cropped it back to landscape.
Did some touching up in PS (USM) and removed a few specs of dirt of the flower.
Also this wasn't "faked" like my last ones, this was an actual flower.

Comments always welcome and appreciated.

Thanks for the comments guys. I really enjoy taking these photos. Its so much fun experimenting with different angles and magnifications. I have read that other liquids can form bigger and better drops and since I am a Chemistry student I may be able to borrow a few items and give them a go.

Tree, the background distinguishes this one. Love the Raynox DCR-250 macro shots with their depth of field that's literally this big -->| |<-- .

That dcr-250 is one heck of a lens! You certainly get a lot better at holding you camera still. I have to hold my breath as I take theses photos (if at full zoom) as the movement of my body is enough to throw it out of focus. Patience is the most important skill here.:?
