So it has to be only one of those three methods, a different method of water drop photo wouldn't be accepted?

These tutorials are a basis, but you can use different methods as long as a Halloween themed picture reflects on a drop :)

Ah! Je viens de vérifier ton profil,et tu es français! Comme moi :D
En fait, ce que je viens d'expliquer c'est que pour que je prenne en compte ta photo pour le concours, il faut que tu mette ta photo sur deviantart avec: 
- le hashtag #macroarmy ds la partie hashtag
- que ta photo soit au moins de 1280 pixels 
- que ds la partie commentaire, tu explique que ta photo rentre ds le cadre du "Halloween themed macro contest" avc en lien ce journal ci - dessus. 
Si tu ne remplis ps ces conditions, je ne pourrai malheureusement ps compter ta photo. Est - ce que c'est plus clair maintenant?

Sounds like a fun challenge! Quick question.. is it limited to those three specific techniques, or will any method that uses water drop refraction be acceptable?

:iconjustacapharnaum:

Only one of these three methods :)
