Hi Hannah - lovely stuff. I really like the contrasting textures across the image. I am compleed to reach in and touch the droplet to watch it flow down the feather. Superb.

Simply and a special composition. I enjoy the colors here! 7

I like how sharp this phtograph is. IT shows detail in not only the feather but within the droplet of water. you can see how it magnifies and bends the shape and size of the feather.

Very nice macro work. So detailed I can see the reflection of the light you used. Great abstract.

Good macro shot!

Something so magic about the elements of the water drops, a feather and beautiful gradient tones in one place. Beautiful image!

Fantastic macro -- great tones. I'm a little bothered by the lamp reflection in the water drop - a nice big diffusion device/material would have been useful in avoiding that.

WOW! Gorgeous color, detail... even the depth of focus is not over done, which I (just according to personal taste) find many shots with limited dof to be.

I like the processing of this; one point - with such detailed composition, the nature of the reflected light becomes just as important, and the clarity of the lampshade is a touch disturbing: the simple expedient of a piece of paper over the front of the lamp would help prevent that. Fine shot, otherwise.

You can't go wrong with water drops. Like the shallow DOF. Nice and simple. I may have cropped it a little tighter and removed the large area of white space. Good Luck.

Nice detail and focus. I love macro shots (8)

Wonderful patterns/lines involved. The round drops work well against the lines.

Nice macro. I bet this would look better if it were more on an angle.....try it with more of a diagonal composition instead of straight across.

Love the detail and clarity of the feather. Love the diagonals of each single strand.
