Just a goofy "little" shot... I think I need more DoF on it, but I kinda like it.

100mm Macro L, full set Kenkos, and an old close up filter I had from my Sony days (for a bit more magnification. I attached a pic of the set up too.

Thanks, Brian! That means a lot coming from the forum's macro master. I might have to redo the shot later to fine tune it a bit.

It is a water drop.. That I know because it was a royal pain to get a drop to hang on a thread. I think the thread might have been waxed too... :D

Thanks.

Wax would help it keep it's form. A regular thread would just absorb it and wick it up the thread and away. :)

I soaked the thread first to prevent that... :) Barely got the water to stick with the knot.

Super. A wonderful and creative shot. Inspiring take..


Camera - Canon PowerShot A3100 IS.
Putting up money and waiting for the release of EOS 600D in India to buy the 550D at a lower price.
Some punks on POTN here, made my interest in the 60D into a decision to get it.... So, 60D, see you soon.
