No I didn't use star filter. It was effect of aperture blades.

No I didn't use a star filter. The effect was by aperture blades inside the lens.

Thats nature for you I suppose.

Very good presentation. The subject and the comp are the image strenghts. Was it raining? as I don't quite understand the minor streaks here and there. The light sparkles suggest the use of a (legal) star filter, which was a good choice.

Cool shot. The water droplets look like perils. My only real issue with this is what looks like a very high amount of sharpening.
