Had a great workout today with my macro lens.. These are moisture (water drops), with a flower at the back of it ! had to bend / kneel down for almost 1.5 hours to take 20 different snaps with different points of focus ! Had to focus stack these pics to have sharp image on each water drop on the frame ! Took most of the snap F9.0 + to further sharpen the image ! First try... Need to try this in day light with a different setup !

I got the idea when I saw a baby spinach box ... there were lots of drops of moisture on top of the box, since it was closed and i thought its could be a fit for this theme... opened the top and gave it a support to stand still 90 degrees.. now i had the water drops vertical plane.. i placed a flower back of this box.. since u see everything reversed in water drops, i couldnt place the flower pot vertical, since it showed reversed .. i had to place it side down, and with various support to keep it steady.. had to move it inch by inch to see where it is placed in the drop.. lighting was also key..used a macro lens and placed it in a way that i can atleast see 20+ drops with various sizes !!!
