I hope you all enjoy spring time as much as I do. Yesterday we had a spectacular sunset and I made use of the opportunity to take some pictures. I just had a nice feather at hand, applied some water drops and shot! This is what I got. Nice glittery rainbow colors just as I love it. Hope you, too! :D :heart:

I dug through your gallery some more, and keep finding such wonderful work! This is absolutely astounding (I just ordered a copy for myself!) There are so many good things to talk about! The color is absolutely captivating! The colors are wonderfully arranged, and neither takes over the other. Now, the focus, breath-taking. It really make the entire picture. I love macro and shallow depth of field, I am very partial to that style. You have made excellent use of it here! The water drops absolutely add an even more artistic look to it, and I enjoy gazing into them, I love the way the drops enhance the detail of the feather. I have seen many artistic renditions of peacock feathers, but none that I have been so fond of. A very original piece for such a subject. Overall, 5 stars across the board! Especially in impact, I love the feelings this piece of art brings me as I look at it, it is peaceful, vibrant, and cheery! You are a visionary!

So beautiful! I am pretty new to Deviant Art as a contributor. My creative passions are Writing, iphoneography (shooting & editing), and Digital Art. I LOVE colors like you! I am in love with your whole gallery! All the images are so colorful & peaceful. I can't wait to get a macro lens for my iphone because I adore water droplets on flowers and splash motion shots. Do you use mobile photography to shoot any of your images? I have 100+ photo editing apps, but am trying to learn from tutorials in photoshop. I like that you explain your techniques. That droplet calendar sounds awesome! Where else do you market or display your work? You have amazing eye for beauty & color and are creative & talented! Your macros are some of the best I've seen!!!!!
Love & Light :) Namasté

Thank you for your sweet comment. A lot of questions to answer for one comment though. I have my own website plus eBay, RedBubble, Zazzle, Facebook and a few others.

I am absolutely in love with this! I have been looking for interesting photos of peacock feathers for my website and none of them compare with the colors of this. AMAZING!

I have done a series of those shots, not all of them are used. What do you need?

I was hoping for a photo for the header of my website and one more just for "accent" purposes. It's basically for a site about health and beauty. Part of my logo is a peacock.

Pretty awesome dude! Even the out of focus - normally a bad thing in macros - works extremely well. Nice visualization!
