All our world reflected in one small waterdrops. Think about it for one moment.

Sorry, but I'm not in mood for funny notes today. Yesterday I watched one of my favourite movies - "The Thin Red Line" based on great book by James Jones. So I'm sad today, thinking how cruel and how sacrificial human can be.

Waterdrop shot taken this morning on my way to work. Few calm moments with beauty of small things. It's hard to capture those little jewels. Cam set to manual, focus on manual, spot metering and luck.

Oh Greg, you shot a good one today. Look at the picture in the waterdrop. The world is upside-down and I can see trees in the snow. It's like looking into a secret world. Very good, well done!

I hate a cruel world too! I miss the time of peace and happiness. When I look at your photo I feel happy today :-)

This is very, very nice. Good DOF. Excellent reflection

Wow.. Like Janice said, you can see the whole, upside down world.. very relaxing picture.. WELL DONE !

Grzegorz, I like droplets a lot, and you did a great job here. I wouldn't think of black-and-white, but it worked well.

Beautiful composition, nice BG. I haven't seen "The Thin Red Line" yet, but I will.

What a great picture Greg!! Really, well done! The drop itself is already beautiful but the reflection makes it perfect. Love it! :)

This is nice Grzegorz,
This is how a drop must be on the photo, the pof in the drop, the dof around, I like the shot a lot, good job

very nice and clear shot!
i like how the drop jumps out with a very good refelvtion of the trees.the dof works very well.good job!

very very good photo! the water drop is captured perfectly.. very sharp and the details inside the drop!! wow..simply amazing!

You touch me this morning, Grzegorz. Room for thought. How astounding that a small water droplet can encapsulate so much. Many thanks for your picture and comments.

Very nice shot Greg. This is very nice. I like the POV and the reflection in the water drop. Good work Greg

You say it is luck, but I think skill has also something to do. I love this shot, it is very beautiful, but this time I will put some critic into this and I must say I would like to see that drop BIGGER. The image contained in it looks wondeful. Today when I arrive home, I will send you something funny to get your mood up for the weekend! Greetings.

Well, Grzegorz, this is very original and perfectly achieved. It's a beautiful idea, kind of intimate shot from where your spirit can wander for hours. But it's better to be in a good mood that day :-) A reflection of your own temporary reflections. Well done!

Awesome shot Greg,
Incredible reflection, superb details.

Grezgorz, I like the theme. Look for beauty in "small" things! Since I'm macro-obsessive-compulsive, it's my kind-a-message! ;-) Well done!

Great shot!
Its very intersting, but has very sad atmosphere.
Anyway, I like it very much.
