on the twig! Had a play with this, and rotated it so it was a bit like one of those snow storm shaker toys (as suggested on previous upload)

I just found it fascinating catching so much of the house in this little rain drop

Novel composition.

I like the way the twig seems to be holding the drop like it was a hand with a thumb(albeit a rather horror-film-like clawed hand!).

Great idea with great result. Well done Karen!!!

Click,

P.S.:
The RAW quality is much better than JPEG, especially if you blow up your image size and you do a lot of adjustments in photo editing software. Steps that I always do with RAW file:
1. Open RAW file in Photo Shop (You need to download free plug-in to be able to open the file). Of course you can also you the bundled software from Canon, but I do not really like the user interface.
2. Set the depth menu (at the right bottom corner) to 16bit. Choose the setting to advance menu (right upper corner). The rest of it, you can adjust white balance, exposure, shadow etc.
3. After you finish, you can use Photo Shop feature for re-adjustment. In my experience, this overall step always gives better results compare to JPEG.
4. If you want to convert you edited file into JPEG, you should change the depth of the file into 8 bit (Image>Mode>8 bit).

I tried this last week - failed miserably. Well done you.
As for my Raglan shot. Off the roundabout towards Clytha, turn right up the lane, past the farm, about 300 yards. I did ask at the house first tho'

Cheers Karen.
Asking for permission stops someone shouting 'Hey what the b---dy hell are you doing there'.
Farmers get a tad touchy about things like taxmen etc. We are all good friends now.

If these are the results you get as a relative beginner, gawd help us when you get some experience, should be worth seeing!
You have the inate talent for wildlife photography, making it look easier than it is. This looks quirky and shows great attention to detail. Makes me think of a snail with his house on his back.
