Many thanks to Ann for her much appreciated User Award for Drying out and to everyone who left clicks or comments for the characters running in the Birmingham Half Marathon on Sunday
This will be the first of a series using lilly pads taken after the rain.
So I will make a gentle start with mono
v2 is the coloured version
v3 is how I set out the cropped squares to start off with
Thanks for looking
Helen

Only you Helen would have thought of a montage like this and it is a masterstroke to present it in mono.

This is a wonderful idea Helen - a masterstroke as Albert says! The mono picks up the textures really well and your montage just completes some very fine work! Oh - mono all the way, in case I hadn't made that clear!Smile

Yes the mono is SO much better as it concentrates the eye on all the great drops.

Mono gives some great textures but I'm going with the colour of v2 which seems to define the shapes better. Lovely work, Helen.

Thanks everyone.
Keith I agree that the mono does focus on the raindrops better, but v2 I also agree with Dave that v2 brings out the shapes and also there is depth which the other versions do not have.

The water droplets look almost metallic in the mono version, and think it works very well....but then, looking at the colourful V2, think this has to be my fave! Wink
