hello has all.
strongly inspired of the photographs of drops of Sabine (wishnugaruda) I carried out tests today of reflections in water droplets with my canon. as I do not have a macro objective I used the closed cap of 52 up +2 of I were useful myself with my konica Z3. that enables me to gain almost 10 centimetres of approach of the subject with the sigma 28-90. that is not as Net as those of Sabine, but I find the result acceptable.

The predominance of red lends tremendous vitality to this aesthetically pleasing capture.

Hi Laurent
You are very humble in describing this result as acceptable. Judging by the opinions of the other critiquers and adding my own POV, I would call this nothing less than amazing. You managed to show us 4 perfect little roses for the price of one. It almost looks like little crystals with the flowers captured inside.
Your composition is great and the colours are rich and well presented. The details are fine and the +2 close-up ring worked excellent to give you the desired vantage point. You also managed to control the exposure very well.
Great work and TFS.

Très bonne idée de composition et très bien réussi, c'est très intéressant visuellement. J'aime moins le rouge flou autour du cadre, je trouve que ça enlève de l'impact au rouge de la rose. Techniquement, c'est nickel, en tenant compte du bricolage de lentille! :-)

Hello Laurent,

Well you did it well, excellent colors, bg, POV DOF perfect details, in the water drops, excllent use of DOF perfect work,

Hello Laurent!
Very clever photo. I like the composition: the drops in the lower part of the image and the flower in the background. Very good POV and nice frame, too. A really creative shot. Congratulations,

Hi Laurent,
I'm not a huge fan of water droplet shots :) BUT this is well presented and unique. You have managed to capture the complete flower in each of the four drops..
