7.5 - Like the concept you're trying to capture, but the inyourface blurry foreground takes away from it. I've had that happened a few times myself, followed with a facepalm.



My foray into HDR, the town's park and river. This is my hometown of Kapuskasing, Ontario.

Edit: Meh, photobucket really doesn't do justice to theoriginal.

I've been bitten by the droplet bug thanks to your posts in your thread.

Spring's here and bugs and buds are revealing themselves. Oh joy...

Here's an old roof from a trashed house in a field near my home.

Yes, Lord_V! He is a macro legend on the net. His droplet refractions are hands down the most amazing photography I've ever seen, it's not cheap or gimicky, they never get old to me. And if you find some fluid with better surface tension and is still crystal clear, let me know! My main problem besides that is mag ratio, I need better than 1:1 because the smaller the droplet, the better the surface tension (getting some ext. tubes soon). Lord_V shoots droplets 1-2mm in size while I had settle for larger drops, which are very hard to get nice and round, and ended up having to settle for oblong or hemispherical drops which don't refract well (see shot below, it was my best attempt).

The flash is too harsh, making the shot blueish and casting harsh shadows. You should try playing with flash exposure compensation and dialing down the strength of the flash, which would give the ambient light a chance to absorb more. Maybe try diffusing the flash even, I use a Puffer but have used folded paper towels too.

I think many of the photos here could easily be improved by cropping the subject matter and removing distractions.

When we look at an object or scene with our eyes, even though we are exposed to a larger scene, our brain helps us filter those unnecessary distractions out so that we only see the object of interest.

In many of the photos here, there are distractions surrounding the subject (which could be cropped) and in many case even in the foreground.

A general feedback is : have patience and think about what you're trying to capture and what is "interesting" and make sure that is what you end up capturing and not some other object in front (blurred out due to focus) or periphery.

This is a great thread. Here is another one!
