Wow - that is a great shot! Well done.


That Sigma 180/3.5 is a rare gem indeed. Out of curiousity, when would you use the 105 vs the 180? I don't suppose you recall how far away from the flower the end of the lens was when you took this shot?

I sometimes use a water bottle to spray rain water onto a flower. I do believe that the "natural" droplets I see is your image are better than my artificial droplets because they vary in size and their placement more than my "artificial" droplets.

That shot turned out really great. Really nice job on the focus and DoF, and the color is impressive.

It's been a long time since I've used the 105mm but having said that it is an excellent Macro lens.

They're from that last batch of Highland drops you sent, I reserved a few for this shot!
