[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Today's post is a little abstract - but I like the effect of the glittering drops in the back.
If you look very close you see parts of the spiderweb inside the tiny drops ...

I hope you like it - enjoy the weekend.

Hello Sabine,
Your creativity sees no end..!
This is a new one, and the refraction of the web in all drops are simply awesome!
Use of flash adds extra effect here, excellent in any way!

hi Wishnu ,
très belle image, la lumière dans les gouttes est étonnante. Jolie composition graphique, peu ordinaire mais agréable.


this is a vey artistic picture, I like a lot
It is a little abstract but in the nature you find many abstract things and I think that nature picture should have to be artistic any how



Hello Sabine,
These water droplets look so beautiful under this pov and composition. The dark background is perfect for these glittering little jewels. Very well done and tfs.

Hello Sabine,
We don't have to look that close as those spiders’s web are so clear. Like Mike said, this is a little work of art again; so brilliant and beautiful! Nature could be so fantastic! Thanks,

No need for note it is absolutely visible from the drops. Great shot.

Magnífica la "atmósfera" que has creado. Es un bonito juego de luces u una bella composición.

Hi Sabine

You are really bacoming a specialist in these types of shots!
What a splendid shot! The effect of the light here is amazing - both on the water drops as well as on the glittering BG.
This is indeed a delicate composition but very nicely managed in terms of technical management.
The reflection of the spiderweb is also magnificent!

Hallo Sabine,
eine huebsche Glasperlenkette, einfach toll wie sich das Licht und die Umgebung darin wieder spiegelt. Super macro und der Lichteffect macht das gganze noch interessanter.

Eh Sabine,
it's Weihnachten again!
Very interesting! I love the polygons! Tfs, Jay

na, ich dachte schon, dass wäre ein versteckter hinweis: ich möchte eine perlenkette. *lol*
tolles macro, sabine! :-)
die reflektionen des spinnennetzes in den tropfen ist echt der hammer, wie mini-ausgaben oder mini-welten.
sehr coole aufnahme & viele grüße aus dem sonnigen köln, thor.

Hello Sabine,
What a fabulous shot! Amazing how you've got the reflection of the web in the droplets (and not of your camera!!) Clever shot, interesting and very beautiful.
TFS and rgards, Ulla

Very very beautiful and unusual.
The flash makes me think these are streetlights in Spider City. ha ha

The reflections are perfect as is the composition!
WOW! I'm adding this to my favorites.

Hi Sabine,
This is a really nice macro effect the clarity of the drops are fantastic. :)

Hello Sabine,
This is a superb one! I like the simple compositon, made only by droplets, but what amazing view of them! I like the lens function in the drops and unfocused reflections from behind. Looks like they're Christmas tree balls.

Bonjour Sabine, merci pour vos compliments. L'effet de glissade des bulles d'eau sur ce fil d'Ariane est splendide. Bonne composition, bravo, Didier.

Das photo ist super.
Die 5 Tropfen kommen wunderbar zur Geltung und glänzen sehr schön. Das sich spiegelnde Netz macht das ganze Bild noch interessanter.
Der unscharfe Hintergrund gibt dem ganzen Bild eine schöne Atmosphäre und lenkt den Blick des Betrachters zurück auf die scharfen Tropfen. :)
Wirklich ser gut gelungen, Respekt.

I like abstract nature photos very much! And this one is particularly well done and pleasant with a great artistic effect. What I especially like is the very little presence of color - without being b&w. A little masterpiece in my eyes...

Well seen, well done!

Hello Sabine,
glad to see you again! :)
Your sharp eyes and Tamron are creating magic tricks! I so love all your water-droplets photos! These ones are looking like some new-year toys for Christmas tree.
Thank you for inspiration, and all my best!
