[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The hosta in my yard has just begun to sprout new leaves. They are so fresh and crisp, and look lovely just after a rain shower.
Cropped, sharpened, adjusted contrast and brightness. Framed for posting.
Hope you like it! My first post for the scavanger hunt.

Hi Liz,
I think you just have a little over exposure in some of the leaf. I love the composition. Great detail in the water droplets.

beautiful capture liz!

No rain, please... we've had enough of that over here the past couple of weeks, Liz ;o). A good macro shot.

Beautiful marco work! I can almost imagine the big drop falling from the end of the leaf. The leaf is in such sharp focus with such a beautifully blurred/soft background. I like how you cropped it too. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Liz,

Beautiful shot and well done on the composition. The drops adds to it.


Simply awesome. I like the colours and all of the shot a lot. To me it seems like a serpent in search of food. The big drop that is resembling the serpent's eye at the tip of the leave gives it that ferocious look.

Leave me hunt in peace SSSSsssssss........
