Hello my TL-friends.
TL is like a dependence - I can't be without it ...
And I hope you will not rail against me for my longer abstinence, thanks.

So I decided to start again with one of my favourite motives - drops.
You can see lots of dewdrops on a blade of grass - and a small daisy behind.
All the drops "caught" it inside them optically.

There's no PP-work here!

Thanks for looking and any words.
Soooo happy to be back ....

Hi Sabine
Your droplets are fantastic. I am pleased that then again here you are. Perhaps at one time you will betray a secret for me how it is becoming.

Hello Wishnu,

Quite a magnificent drop work.

Great Work

How could I EVER forget the drop girl! This is wonderful, as always Sabine! Sharp as a tack! Excellent DOF! I don't know how you make the drops stand up like that! Wonderful clarity too! You have a gift!

Hello Sabine,

Welcome back, both you and your droplets!
This is just a wonderful shot!
The droplets are pin-sharp whilst the blurred daisy makes a fine, explanatory backcloth.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Bonjour wishnu,
Cest géniale beau, fantastiques gouttelettes, de l'Art dans l'Art.
Belle journée.


Hello Sabine!
Welcome back! I am absent, too, in last time...but I want to post more.
Fantastic again your composition. I love those drops with reflexions!
Great work, like usual!
Best regards!

Ciao Wishnu

Are the favorite of nearly half a TL.
Beautiful in the visual and the drops are perfect
reflections of pure crystal!
Trade mark of Sabine.

Hi Sabine,
Long time no see. I hope all is well and that you've been enjoying live and made many great photos. I did miss your creative view on photography and your skills what that lens.
This is a typical you photo where the flower captured in the drop is a marvelous effect. Love the sharpness and clarity.

Waw....what a beauty!
Great idea and lovely realization!

Hi Sabine,

Welcome back with such a powerful work...in last times the droplets pictures have become your copyright :)

Another wonderful composition with great colors and the reflections where a single dasy gave rise to multiple daisy...a regenerating work for Nature :) Great focus and superb colors. Sharpness and POV are just wonderful.

Marvelous work!

Hi Wishnu,
great work, I am amazed that the droplets under the stem are hanging on, is this a natural shot or did you set-up the droplets - they are a wonderful shape especially the ones underneath - they are almost the perfect sphere
cheers and keep up with the addiction

Hallo Mein alteste Freund:)
Wilkommen wieder..Ein wunderschönes makro.Sehr gut sharfe, farben und detailen.Gratuliere!!
Viele grüsse,


Hello, Sabine -
This is a fantastic image - I love the fact that the reflections of the flower in each individual drop are natural without PP work. Wonderful sharpness and bright warm colors. Great composition and creative idea. I very much enjoyed looking through your gallery which is full of wonderful images. Cheers -

Hello Sabine,

Long time no see.... Nice to see you back and of course with a technic you master very well. Good exposure, simple composition. Nice work and TFS.


Just a question. Is it just water or a mix with something else as glycerine?

crystal clear details and colors. Excellent shot.

Hallo Sabine,

"drops" are really one of your style marks. Many of them are really beautiful.
This one proves that great ideas and good preparation make postprocessing unnecessary.


Hi Wishnu
How are you? Really a great work you done. Great composition and POV.
Well done and keep is up n up.

Hi Sabine,
This is an awesome capture!
The dropplets are true jewels!
The image is sharp and the reflections very bright!
I like the blurred daisy in background. The bokeh is a great counterpoint enhancing your subject.
Perfectly done! Annie

Olá Wishnu

Belíssimo trabalho, delicada composição.
Ótima idéia e um resultado excelente.
Lindas cores, detalhes maravilhosos.
Grande abraço,

owww... wow.. this is not even near my experiment!!!
I have seen someone here in Holland who sells her pictures with waterdroplets on the artists market.
I just love these images!
I have used my 200mm lens and my 50mm macro lens but I don't even come close to this result Sabina.
I love this! it's an excellent picture my dear! Well done!


Hi Sabine,
Missed this one and it remembers me to the attempts Anneke did while I joined her. You are the master of this kind of photography. Stunning sharpness, great colours. I really enjoy this image!
