Photos: Waterdrop Reflection

I recently decided to try something new in my photography -- water drop photos. These are photos where the subject is viewed inside of a water drop. Here's a recent attempt I made.

Canon XSi, 100mm macro lens, f/2.8, 0.8 seconds

As always, comments, critiques and criticisms are welcome, encouraged and appreciated.

Simply wonderful. Great colors and composition.

Great idea and execution. You can also do a lot with icicles.

Wow, nice shot! How did you do that?

The red you see is a Gerber daisy.

I set up my camera with my macro lens (I LOVE that lens) and put it on a tripod.

I positioned it in front of the sunflower. I used a spray bottle to create the drops to hang off the daisy.

I then found the reflection (or, more precisely, the refraction) of the sunflower through the drop. I then aimed the camera, set the aperture to the widest it will open (2.8 on that lens) and shot.

You're a very patient person. And skilled with a camera, too!
