This shot is probably the most colorful out of the 4 that I have submitted. The contrasts are awesome here! Just another angle of view and the reflections are totally different. :wow:

Waterdrops on a CD, natural lighting, simple color and contrast adjustments in Photoshop.

Number #4 will be the last submission in the series for now unless you cry for more. :lol:





The last two parts of the series I transferred to my photo account *Viliggoly to avoid to bore you but make the series complete! :D

Damn I wish I could focus that close. Probably need to spend money on some nicer glass...

*laughs* Yeah right... probably need to pay my student loans first. XD

I don't know why, but this one reminds me
of a Trapper-Keeper I had in school.
You remember Trapper-Keepers, right?

I agree, the colors and contrast are stunning on the shot.

lacks a focus point due to the shallow image depth however due to the angle.

have you considered a more aggresive crop to create more movement and a focus?

Yes, but I liked it best this way. Thanks so much!

i usde a nikon d90, and luckily have a macro lense, so what next? point and shoot? do i need strobe/ flash lighting? what kinda set up would you have used for this image?

Well, all you need is good natural light, maybe sun, and a tripod if you have. For this shot I used a CD, put some water on it and shot it in the direct sunlight. Nothing more. I never use flash by the way, sometimes some bright lamps.

aarrr, i thought it was a car or swomething, yes- amplifying the simple into the extra ordinary (lovely stuff). i dont use flash either, i liek to manipulate and allow the camera to breathe in the already existing light. ^_^
