Water droplets on a fairly large scale. If this does not meet the criteria for the weekend comp feel free to exclude it  :)

Had a go. Not to the same standard as bones, I'm lazy with my set ups :D



Edit -- This is my last one I'm trying for this comp. You could be at it for ages and still think you could get a better one. ::)

I gave up on the splashes pictures - my efforts this time were poorer than the last time I tried it. A definite back to the drawing board picture for me:

Droplets on a Leaf:



Note to self - get a proper macro lens.  :D

Candle droplets

My water droplets were an unmitigated disaster, so I went for wax droplets instead!

Guys & Galls I've made the entry thread the poll thread mainly because Alan hasnt used the CC gallery for his entry.

It would be great if all entries were in the CC gallery to make life easier, or perhaps we should just do it like this anyway. Either way this will work for this week I'm sure  :beer:

Good luck all, great range of entries, hope you all enjoyed it  :legit:

FWIT I think that adding a poll to the entries thread makes a lot of sense - much easier and faster plus you can see any explanatory comments that people have put with the entries.

I agree absolutely with Howard :)

A good point for the future - maybe a good idea for "the other side" where things seem REALLY complicated.

Excellent photos everyone, I promise to try and join in this week.
