Bitte's Challenge

By ColouredImages    
After last night's upload Bitte (Beik) threw down a challenge to produce an image with a few drops reducing in size.

Huh, easier said than done with my wobbly hands, nevertheless I shall persevere.

This is a half way house, two drops for the price of one and the only thing I've altered is the "black control point" in Capture NX. It came up with this wonderful rainbow of colours as I moved the cursor across the flower.

LARGE F11 and a dark room recommended

Mike, sorry I haven't seen it until now. Been busy. You have done this very well, indeed. I love it and it's so fun that you immediately went to work to see what you could do with my half-joking suggestion. Colours are super and just to get both drops to stay in place deserves praise. I let you off here, there doesn't have to be 3-4 of them and reducing in size! Bet they'll come anyway!
Great work .
