Default Wet garden macro's

Well the heat is gone, the skies have opened, and the land is refreshed. Went into the garden to try some raindrop and general wet stuff macro's, always admired the "focus through a water drop" shots, and thought I would give it a try. Still new to this sort of thing, so any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks for looking.

The reflections in number 3 are beautiful. I would crop to leave just those two water beads. Good work.

Nice series, except for nr1, the way you've used dof there is magnificent.

Great work

Thanks both!

pboerger, I tried cropping it a bit tighter, but it's not as sharp:



Forgot I had a few others I had not edited as well:

The "Generic wet grass" shot is outstanding, but the final shot in the second posting is "wow." The connections between drops are so unusual and effective.

Thanks Paul!

I almost didn't upload the very last photo, wasn't sure if I liked it or not.
