    The out of focus branch is a bit distracting, although I realize it is difficult to focus on the branch AND the reflection in the water.

    Thanks Mepo. I used FZ200 with tripod. I used focal distance 4mm, 1/125 sec, ISO100, macro-photo setting. It was a windy day, took about 25 pictures of the droplets in the plum tree and had to wipe the water droplets from the objective twice. I also had to crop the picture quite much.

    This would have been a nice macro, unfortunately it is out of focus, try some more and you will get at some point. Macro photography is great fun and can be done anywhere. This video might be of help to you. Nice that you tried

    I've always wanted to try one of these. I'm told it's much more difficult than it looks. It would be nice to see more definition if possible. I like the composition and the texture of the hanging branch.

    Like the idea, just needs something more interesting reflected in the water drop.

    The reflection in the droplet is stunning and very interesting to look at, however the image as a whole is washed out and little noisy. I would suggest to drop the black point slightly and maybe convert to B&W to remove the slight blue hue coming through. There is very little colour in this photo so I think B&W will do the image justice.

    Like the image in the droplet, and the somber coloration makes everything feel cold and wet. Tighter focus on the drop would be an improvement.

    Rain droplets are always good subjects, but the branch has a grainy look which might be due to resizing larger.
