I had a look inside my archive and found this shot which I like to show you today.
Remember a summerday after a mild rain - pure freshness outside - you look closer to those tiny drops in the grass - and you smell the clear air around - ooohhhh, I wish it will be summer soon!

Thanks for any words ...

Hi Wishnu!!

Nice photo...Sharpness of droplets is very good. Nice use of light.

Ciao Sabine,
bellissima macro di queste gocce trattenute dai sottili fili di una ragnatela come in una splendida collana di perle dai mille riflessi, eccellente DOF, perfetto uso del flash che con la luce naturale ha creato delle tonalità brillanti e luminose dei colori, straordinaria nitidezza.

Hallo Sabine,
Die Wassertropfen sind wie kleine Kristalle wo man wie durch linse schaut .Die Idee ist sehr interessant.
Grüße Siggi

Beautiful capture Sabine.
I like the way one row of droplets is just hanging in mid air,on an invisible cobweb no doubt.
Great shot.

Ciao Sabine, amazing composition with fantastic drops, wonderful light, very well done, ciao Silvio

It is so very neat the way the whole can be captured in a drop of water..I have a few of these but not nearly as good quality as yours..Very nicely done..

Hi Sabine

Hi Sabine,

Wishnu merhaba,ne güzel sanki hepsi birer küçük dünya.Ben oradan kendime bir tane seçtim.Ama küçük olanlardan seçtim ki,dünyama kimse büyük diye göz dikmesin.Işıl ışıl bir kare,bana canlıklık hissettirdi.Çok beğendim çok,süperrrrrr :)

Hi Sabine

A great little abstract contribution. Beautifull little worlds of water set amongst a vibrant green envinonment. It could be anywhere.
Well captured and presented.

Liebe Sabine,
Es weihnachtet, auch auf deinem Bild..wäre doch ein schöner Baumschmuck, so fein, so zart! Muss doch ein wenig schmunzeln, Rain Forest in Bayern! uebrigens habe ich früher ein Paar Monate in München gearbeitet. Schönes Bild, voller Glanz und Feinheit. Und der Winter kann ja auch schön sein.
Herzlichen Dank

Hello Sabine
Wow, amazing! Excellent reflection in the water drops from above the leaf and those from beneath...they seem floating in the air, ignoring any gravitational forces: the spider web is so tiny and almost invisible. I like also the very fresh colors.
All the best, Oana

Hi Sabine,

what a wonderful drop shot, although there's some visible flash usage but still very very beautiful! It even makes it shine more. And the composition is fantastic. TFS!

Hello Sabine,
Like small balls of crystal glass, these dew drops shine both on the blade of grass and the thin spider's thread. The lighting is great and the OOF natural BG makes the look like they float!
Thanks for this nice one from your archives and have a nice weekend!

Hi Sabine,
You do this water droplet thing so well :)
Looks magical, with each small drop a microcosm of the larger world around it..
Well done!
