Challenge: Macro (Classic Editing)
Camera: Canon PowerShot G2
Location: Setup on my desk
Date: Nov 7, 2002
Aperture: 8
ISO: 50
Shutter: 6.0
Galleries: Abstract
Date Uploaded: Nov 7, 2002

The title comes from the background image, I used the cd cover slip from "Aria 2" by Paul Schwartz. The setup (in order) was the camera, a magnifying glass, the pin and waterdrop, then part of the cd cover. I used a longer shutter and mildly low lighting with a high aperture to get the light levels I wanted.

Thanks to everyone who left comments, With comments like these my score doesn't dissapoint me so much :-P I took a risk doing something "Artistic" in a challenge like macro... I knew I did too... I had some other macro shots that were of the same image, but closer up of the water drop. If you want to see my outtakes you can find them here //gaze.myparadise.org/pin.htm

I chose my favorite photo, I guess I should have picked a more technical shot, but I really liked this one for it's artistic value... I'm just glad a few of you enjoyed my shot :) thanks again fro the comments.

Wow. I almost missed it, ubt the detail in the droplet is amazing. Is that really a face or am I just imagining things?

Nice. Micro face in macro shot of needle drop. Using drop to show face right side up. Cool.

I really like this picture. The eye is immediately drawn to the droplet of water and the tiny picture within. Hope you do well this week.

I would not have believed it if I had not seen if for myself. This throws out all of the photography rules out for me and just get a 10 for what it is. I still can't believe it. I gotta know how you did it. PTL It'll be one of my favorites.

I almost gave you a 3 because it was boring (main subject way too smal), Then I saw the little face in the water drop! Great execution. 8 Jacko

love the subtle inversion in the drop, very clever. did you use something that would stay put on the needle? or just catch a drop of water hanging on? -10

I had to look twice at this one. Very cool effect.

Very nicely done. Hope people look long enough to see the face in the water droplet, and to see how this picture works.

Took me a while to figure out exactly what I was looking at. The background is really confusingly busy...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Oh yes, great one!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great idea; but there's too much in the background. It's too confusing.
