I love macrophotography and I wanted to see how water drops would look in an HDR. I think it's pretty neat, hope you like it too
10 for grass and your son.
Very nice! Cool lens model. Nice droplets ;-)
Excellent.favorit for me
I like it but I think a lack of a central focus makes the image look slightly confused
I don't think it requires it since there is no spider on it! The water is the subject and it's in very sharp focus
Its personal preference, you want my honest opinion dont you, I always give my honest opinion on every shot:)
yes, yes, no worries. My personal opinion is that not every photo has a central point...I look at this as more of an abstract
@adriany, a fantastic concept and fresh change to the wide angle shots you typically see here. I think this would work wonderfully as a black and white. Also, have you flipped the image to see how that works?
I tried the b&w but it was so contrasty that my eyes hurt. What I was looking for was to try to get the droplets to be a bit blue and I just desaturated the green a bit, it was too bright
What do you mean by flipping the image?
Absolutely Beautiful. The soft lighting and color help make the mood.
Excellent.. flipping means well.. flipping. The right moves to left and vice versa. Usually done in photoshop if you have it.
@Spiritofwestern... I really don't see how flipping would improve this image whatsoever. Flipping is a function in photoshop that would reverse the image from left to right. So what you have on the left would be on the right and what is on the right w
would be on the left. This image would not benefit from flipping.
Cool shot, I like your insect macro better though
Yep, me too. This was a little experiment to see how it would look as an HDR. I love to experiment
@nicolle, completely agree, how would flipping this make any difference?
I really like, the drops seem united by water and not the web.
Fantastic view, resemble diamonds, also remember my chemistry classes in high school.
The blades of grass point/flow from bottom right to top left. Westerners are taught (through reading) to go from left to right, top to bottom. Flipping would change the flow of the photograph to accommodate that learned way of seeing enhancing the flow th
enhancing the flow through the image.
I really love this shot (prefer it to the bug one posted later).
@spirit of weston, you mean assuming that all people look at an image in the same way? Would this also work for say, cubism?
I like it. Agree with nicolle and rrr about the flipping. It works sometimes but not in this case.
I love the look of this shot. You had to get a little wet yourself to get that close!
@Randy, not just wet but I will soon get a hernia too! :)) The positions I have to get in for macro...don't do this at home :))
I think this image was was way overanalized :). It's just a wet spider net that I often shoot cause I love to see the round droplets. The position of the grass has no meaning :)
For me, the purpose of art is to cause a reaction or feeling in the viewer, so in that respect you can congratulate yourself on creating a work of art:)
A pleasant one by the way.
Why thank you good Sir! :)
You ever have one of those days when you could change your vote. This is one of those days. After further review I would give this a 10 for sure. I like the detail in the drops of water.
@rrr, please see my PM ref my comments on "Water"
