Water Droplets on Hawthorn

water droplets on hawthorn berries

I've been trying to take a photo of water droplets with the background focused in the droplet. This is my best attempt so far. Have you got any suggestions how I can take a better shot?

Real nice shot! I love your photographs your very good! You can actually get lost in the details. My fav is the "frost Crystals" Simply lovely.

Thank you so much for the heads up on mad1412. :)

Nice job on this one. The detail is amazing, you can see a tiny world reflected in the drops, frozen in time by your camera. Almost looks like ice instead of water.

Hey John - why not try using a tripod? The shot appears to be a bit blurry, perhaps due to an unsteady hand. I like the concept but would like to see a much sharper focus on the subject matter. That said, I'm not sure exactly how you're getting the background reflected like that, so what do I know :)

That is just amazingly beautiful. Well done.

Very nice, and a genuine chilly feel to the image to me...

It's pretty good to be able to think about getting the background features in the water drops. This looks great. I only attempt to get the water itself, and if I ever do get a reflection it's by plain luck.
