Perhaps you know, I love waterdrops - and I love to make experiments with them.
The last flower in my garden was a white Chrysantheme.
Not far away on a leaf there were some big raindrops.
So I tried to capture the flower inside the drop.
It's so phascinating, the drop is showing you the things behind like in a little fisheye-lense.
Please don't think that this is a photomontage!!!
This is original, only a little cropped and sharpened.
I also made a shot of a drop with my husband standing behind the drop shows his eyes, perhaps you are interested, it's on TrekLens, please have a look here: Click here for Stephan's drop

I hope, you enjoyed my shots, perhaps you also try it, that's a lot of fun! Bye.

Very interesting shot Sabine!
It has quite amazing look and great colours.
Good framing and sharpness too.

Hi Sabine,
Excellent capture, Good sharp detail and colours. Great POV.
Nicely composed and good exposure.
Thanks for posting. Have a great weekend.

Hi Sabine,
Very very nice! When I see pictures like this I'm never quite sure of what I'm dealing with... are they reflections or refractions??? Whatever... I can enjoy the beauty anyway!

great shot again Sabine

Hallo Sabine, Deine Inspiration zu solchen Fotos kann ich nur bewundern. Toll - einfach toll. "Blume im Tropfen gefangen" - Farbe/Licht - genial, Schärfe/Detail - makellos. Das I-Tüpfelchen ist noch das unscharfe Original der Blume im Hintergrund. Heute bist Du die Nr. 1 für mich. Danke. Ich wünsche Euch noch ein schönes Restwochenende.
