Well it's been raining here pretty solidly for the last two days - reduced to doing some raining flower shots :). Second one is just using a fractalius filter on the first shot.

Worth playing with- you can use a small photo instead of a flower which gives all sorts of possibilities :)

Thanks Rebecca and mackey :)

mackey - the image is focus stacked- so I focus on the refracted image first and then the droplets themselves.

Amazing shots. After looking at your posts I always feel like grabbing my camera and not coming back until I've got something :D.
