Posted By: mtnbearhug, 11-21-2007, 07:00 AM

With all the rain.... I had to try to get some water drops.. Had a blast and took several shots trying to get the reflectiion to work.. definately need a macro lens!!!!! LBA has STRUCK!!!

Enjoy the pics.. the last one is my favorite.....

#1.. this one is busy, but I LOVED the reflection that I got...


#2.. Not as busy.. but nice reflection... the thing that looks like a butterfly is actually me taking the pic!!! LOL.


#3.. My favorite... I could stare at it for hours!!


C & C is always welcomed and wanted...

The image..



The image that you see in the drops for this picture is actually the mountain on the other side of the road...

I also pesonally like the sun stars (is what I call them ) in the drops as well..

Since I do not like messing with other peoples pictures can you do a really close crop of the water drop? The focus in the water drop looks very clear. The third needs more contrast...darken it up a bit and it might bring out the drops more. Nice compostion on that one...

Charlie,

Thank you for the feedback.. here is my try at adding more contrast to #3



and cropping the water drop more... I had trouble sharpening it any more so it is a bit fuzzy.



Feel free to play with them more if you like... PP'ing is still pretty new to me, so if you do play please tell me what you did!!

I have to say that I've very impressed with these photo's Kim
Especially when you consider that you shot them in Auto

I don't think that I've ever seen a close up image like these where all the background and sky were exposed so perfectly.


Keep it up.

I enjoyed looking at your images, Kim. Like you, I've also been toying with the idea of a true macro but I want that 18-250mm first and by golly...! Anyway, good work. Keep shooting!

I have to give the credit my lens though... the kit lens that I have is really great!!!!

I have an 80 - 200 (for slr) so that gives me a 300.. but I would also really like a sigma or tamaron 300...
