Post Challenge: I didn't expect this one to go anywhere - thanks. And it was the tip of a need, not a pin. I used an extension tube.

I have yet to get one of those drop shots to be that crystal clear. Nice finish, Ken.

Very common technique, but well done, and if this is really a pin it's a great macro.

amazing picture... I don't really get the relationship between the pin, the water and the flower though, otherwise I would have rated it higher.
