Dew drops sparkle-- how?
I am wondering how people get those pictures of dewdrops sparkling. This morning my mutabilis rose was "frosted" with dew and the sun was shining like a million jewels on it, enough so that the stems looked like they were outlined in blazing drops of sunlight. But when I took the pictures, blah! None of the sparkles showed up. I know my pictures were not good at all and most actually turned out overexposed with flare, dull-looking at the same time; but I'd like to know how to capture what my eye sees? Shooting with Rebel XT, Tamron 28-75mm f2.8, P mode (maybe my problem?). I don't have a macro lens, yet. Roses were between me and the morning sun, but from other angles they didn't sparkle.

Re: Dew drops sparkle-- how?
I know this is an old thread. You may have already received your answer. If so, please share how to do it.
I haven't tried this in daylight, only in the dark or dimly lit areas. I don't even know if this would be the solution. I've never tried it.
F-as high as possible
Shutter speed - as low as possible for the light
