Very interesting shot. Very well composed. I think your idea is really unusual. I like it. I'll tray to take a photo like yours, as soon as possible. I like the reflection on water drop. Bravo and TFS

A very artistic view on the dead leaf. The water drop is beautifully captured and the reflection of the blue sky agains the dark BG is great. I do have a few small nits. A smaller aperture would be better to get the tip of the leaf in focus as well. There are two small spider web wires (or how do you call them) that I would clone away.
But the twinkels of the sun are awesome.

I love these kind of shots! And you did it well. Moreover, you have an interesting note with your image too.
It's a bit noisy, so I've tried to remove it. I hope I did the right thing.
Tfs, best wishes,

I had to open your photo just to see what it was..interesting photo for sure..great macro catching that water pooling waiting to drop off the frozen leaf. The sparkling light on it does make it quite pretty. TFS

I think your notes are a very good physics explanation of dew and frost phenomenon. But my opinion about the photo comes from a professional point of view, rather than a "neutral" one. I like a lot phase changes, dwe in the morming... and all the emotional constructions about it. I find your photo -noise excluded- a very aesthetic one by its reflection, refraction and shape. I adore droplets in grass blades, do you?

PS. Can you explain frost over cars?

Upside down, dome shape of this water droplet creates an interesting reflections [of trees and blue sky]. Very neat image for ISO 400. Well focused, great DoF. I like this shallow DoF, limits sharp area only on the water droplets and blurrs all of its surrounding.

I welcome your nice poetic work, its perfect lighting, lovely colours and creative subject. Perfect details and sharpness of the drop. Unusual colour tones of the BG harmonize with the leaf excellently. My compliments and regards.

It is good to post photos for the othe members, but I think it is very good to post also photos that you like, not taking into account what other people might think about it, I enjoy myself doing it.
In fact, I find the reflections and the magnification effects on this drop interesting, and the composition very nice.
I agree with Tairi about the noise reduction needed.

Karen, without your mention I would not have picked out the leave... The waterdrop is interesting as it appears to hame a film over it. I have seen that before and think it originates from decaying information.
On objects that are hard to ID, what do you think of

I did. I like this kind of photography very much. Very artistic. The mirror-effect on the freezing layer. Perfect. Your object is so simple, but oh so beautiful. Magnificent lightfal. Beautiful colors. In one word --A PEACEFUL -- compo. And a very handsome and interesting notes. Greetings and TFS BOB
