Hello my friends ...
Even the smalles things are beautiful - you only have to look a little closer.
For example this spider-web with raindrops on it.
In the back there is a sere stick and some leaves.
I love the reflection inside the little water-bodies.

I hope you also enjoy my bewitched little world outside in my garden ...
Thanks for looking - and enjoy the day!

Hello Wishnu
U dont' cease to bring one Amazing shot after the other each day. I go with you 100% on "look closer" concept.
Brilliance of colours that sparkle and a well saturated shot make this an excellent composition.

Congratulations and God Bless.
Thank you for sharing

Hi Sabine

What a fantastic shot and it really does show us all to open our eyes and as you said look closer, the lighting is amazing with wonderful colours too, a superb composition.

Hallo Sabine,
das war wohl Gedankenübertragung! Bin nur kurz auf dem Sprung bei TN. Und was sehe ich - Sabine war/ist aktiv...freu... Ich war Ostern auch nicht im Schmetterlingshaus - und das war auch gut so!!! Selbst gestern war es sehr voll. -
Deine Tropfenbilder begeistern mich immer wieder aufs Neue. Die Ideen und den Blick für so etwas muss man haben. Wie schaffst Du das bloß? Ich glaube auch, dass Kompaktkameras für solche Fotos nicht viel taugen!? (hieß es auch bei Sportfotos - habe da einige vom Gegenteil überzeugt - ganz dickes Lach...) - Sehr schönes, scharfes Foto, super augeleuchtet - eine wunderbare Komposition. Danke Dir.
Lieben Gruß aus dem wolkigen OWL

Hola Wishnu,
Una composición de gran belleza, los reflejos son muy nitidos y claros. Saludos
José Ramón

Hello Wishnu
Excellent presentation of raindrops,
Perfect focusing and lighting,
Superb shot.

Good Luck

Hi Sabine

What a really great photo of the water droplets in the spiders web. You have the down to perfection... Composition is excellent as always. Finally bought myself a macro lens as a result of your pictures, though if I only get half as good as this I will be happy!

Excellent as always and wonderful compostion.

Hi Sabine.
Next your small true miracle of art. Bravo. Superb done. I like your creative approach and excellent realization of your plans. Rain droplets with amazing reflections are looked perfectly at colourful and nicely illuminated BG. Sharpness and details of the raindrops are wonderful. My congratulations and TFS.

I'm amazed. I never would have thought of shooting water droplets in a web this close.
They're beautiful Sabine.
Perfectly exposed and stunning sharpness.

Molto..molto bella

Hi Wishnu ,
what a nice shot from raindrops.
excellent details and amazing colours.
lovely shot. it is my favorite.

What an amazing shot Wishnu. The colours that you have capture in the water droplets are glorious. Well seen and captured.

Hi Sabine,

Yes you have to look closer and you should have a nice camera. Nice shot and superb composition.


Hi Sabine,
a very nice picture wiht lovely colours and good details.
The DOF is also good, all the droplets are in focus.
Well done, my friend.

Hi Wishnu,

This take is worth more than 100 pts if you ask me. Great expression and good note.
Thanks for the inspiration.



This is a marvelous picture. The green background has added so much of color to the dew drops (or rain drops?).

fantastic shot Sabine, congratulations

Yes, there are countless subtle charismas of nature that we are either too busy to look at or do not have the "eye" to see them, Sabine.
You have captured one such subtle moment very beautifully in this macro picture.
Of course, there is this plus side to technology that enables us to see what the naked human eye would not be able to see.
You have used your equipment with great dexterity in capturing this stunningly beautiful image.
Thanks for sharing it.

Ok, you have already demostrated that the tamrom works even better in the 400D :)
A pleasure to see your water drops again, this one is crystal clear and shows a lovely feeling of optical quality.
Great work, TFS and best regards, Felipe.

Great shot Sabine! Full of drops on the web! All of theme has beauty in it!
