The Last Drop

By stevec85
This Was Taken As My Monthly Entry In My Local Camera Club Competition.The Theme Was Water, I Didn,t Just Want To Take A Picture Of A River,Stream Or Seascape.I Wanted Something Different So I had This Idea In Mind.I Set Up My Camera With My Minolta 50mm Macro Lens (Tripod Mounted).Firstly I Sprayed The Leaf Of The Plant With Water And Waited Until A Prominant Single Droplet Of Water Retained On The Tip Of The Leaf.I Then Placed A Lime Fruit In The Background So The Image Of The Fruit Could Be Seen In The Droplet.This Was Manually Focused To Achieve As Sharp An Image As Possible.

Sharpen the drop, - it will make a huge difference. When re sizing, use this flow:

Original image>sharpen>resize>save as new file>reduce file size to site requirements>save>OPEN the new file>check sharpness>apply sharpening as required>save>upload.
