Can you see your future in these crystal balls? by Seb-Photos Can you see your future in these crystal balls? by Seb-Photos
Another try... I'm not really happy with the result for the moment... I have to improve myself ; Especially because I should have removed from the frame the other flower that appears on the picture. It is too much distractive. Taken with 100mm 2.8 macro + extension tubes.
Anyway, do you like?

Comments and faves are always appreciated!

I actually think the extra flower enhances the picture, with it's softer, different colour and the pointed petals which make a balance from the rounded water droplets :)

That's a beautiful shot and this extreme wide crop is exactly matching the scenery. I like how the droplets are forming a line which is guiding the viewer from the dark left side of the photo to the brighter right edge of the frame. Also, the background makes a nice contrast with the foreground. Well done, Seb! :)

Thank you for your great comment and glad you like it. I'm not really used to photograph this sort of scenary but I try.
For the moment, I didn't have any flower on my balcony so that I can train myself, but I will :)

Despite the fact that I don't have them in my gallery on here, I do have a few water drop shots.
I'll have to see if I can find some & post them.
The best one has a series of about 8 small drops on the edge of a leaf, all are perfect focus, magnifying the beautiful rose bloom on the branch behind it.

This is a nice shot.
If you're going for "water drop as a magnifying glass" shots, then yes, the proximity of the main part of the flower is rather distracting.

If ya want to get a better overall view of what's being magnified inside, you might want to increase the distance between the waterdrop and the secondary subject just a bit.
