Just another macro drop shot. I used coloured background (with the colours in the reverse order as the pencils) to be able to have the same sequence inside the drops. Used glycerine to better control the flow.

You are very good at these refracted water drop images. I very much like that you reversed the colors so that they line up with the pencils. and yes, having personally tried working with water drop photography, I agree that glycerine is a BIG help doing these.

I do think you may have processed this a bit more than necessary to get a pleasing effect. I rather think the bright hot spots detract from the overall composition, but that's just one DPCer's opinion. One person's 'hot spots' could be another person's 'design elements.'

You achieved a good score for this image, especially in this tough challenge with so many excellent pictures.

Keep up the good work!

Hello? Sarampo? Are you there? ;)

It's a good picture but I must say the focus is there but not enough DOF. The backdrop color isn't working at it's best for me either.

Good luck!

looks like you sharpened the shot a little too much. there are some really harsh lines.

Yikes... Love the colors but it seems to be severely over sharpened.
