I've just realised that 6 days ago was my second anniversary on TN! :-)))
That's two very enjoyable years here and I would like to thank everyone on TN for making it such a good time :-)

Here's some droplets which look like frog's eyes :-D

I hope you like it!

P.S. I'm not sure what has happened to the exif data... if anyone wants to know any specific detail then I'm happy to find it for them.

Thanks for your work,thanks for your fantastics pics,thanks for your professional class..and thanks for this incredibles pic,nothing better to celebrate a 2nd year whit us! Luciano.

Well done prodigious boy! Keep up the good work ! Great shot of the tiny water drops.

Hats off to your oodles of energy and enthusiasm in capturing nature in a splendid manner.

All the Best !

Hi Joe,
I usually don't get real excited about water droplet macro's, but this is the exception.
Especially so since it marks your two years of participation here on TN.
Love the green FG, & contrasting red BG here, great light.
Well done young man!

Hi OwlMan Joe:),
A perfectly taken macro of these esthetically composed water droplets on a leaf. Congrats on your 2nd anniversary on TN too. Thanks a lot for all contribution MF!


Congrats Joe,but perhaps the title should read 'Two Tears On TN'?
You got an amzing number of points,in the time you had them switched on,and they were all deserved.
It does become difficult to keep up with critiques though,especially when life gets busier. I often just have to stop for a couple of days and pick up again later.
Anyway,a lovely shot of these droplets.
I think one of them is dancing ;)
TFS & Cheers

Hello Joe !
Great picture to celebrate your 2 years on TN ! These droplets are gorgeous, like two shiny jewels - the reflection in them are fantastic. I also like the composition, the POV, the vivid colors, the blurred BG. THe large white frame looks nice, too, and really compliments the picture. Very well done, and let's look forward to the next 2 years - or even more, I hope !

Hello Joe.

Excellent macro, nice composition.

Jose Luis.
