    thanks for the comments - and the votes
yes, the grain comes from the poor light - iso 800, in order to get a reasonably fast shutter at 600mm - and cropping.

plus I could probably improve my postprocessing. the original was very flat grey, so I needed to emphasise contrast and this just amplified the noise.

    Great choice of subject to exhibit patterns in nature. I used to try to make ripples that were not round when I was a child, but never succeeded! My only concern is the noise. Is that on purpose? Did you convert to black and white to try to minimize it? Just curious. Almost made my favs.

    Nicely spotted. The droplets form interesting intersecting patterns. A bit too grainy though.

    Perfect fit for the challenge. I presume the graininess is from cropping.
