“In every drop of water, there is a story of life.” Leena Arif

I’m playing around with my D800E and the 105mm Macro lens.  Since the sprinklers were on in the garden it was a prime opportunity to get some cool water drop pics.  I have alot to learn to maximize the potential of this lens . . . but I was pretty impressed with what I did get.  Can you see my reflection in several of the water droplets?  I had to really decrease the size of this for posting purposes.  These images tend to start out (in RAW) at around 40 mb.  I’m finding I really don’t need to do much post processing other than maybe a tad bit of sharpening.  The SOOC quality is quite stunning.  Coming from a crop factor camera (the D7000), it’s quite incredible.

“salmonberry(n.)ˈsæm ənˌbɛr i:    the salmon-colored, edible fruit of a raspberry, Rubus spectabilis, of the Pacific coast of North America.”   http://www.definitions.net

Took the kids for a walk in the park behind our property today . . . first time I’ve been in the park this spring.  It is lush, green and somewhat overgrown with all the rain we’ve had recently.  It was a real treat to find the Salmon-berries ripe and ready to be picked.  Yum!  I took the first shot with my 35mm 1.8 lens ISO 400 and 1/1600 (overcast day and  a steady breeze). Then I added the 20mm Macro Extension Tube for the second shot . . .

“If I saw something in my viewfinder that looked familiar to me, I would do something to shake it up.”   Garry Winogrand

I’m playing around with my new Macro Extension tubes.  I really want to do some Macro Photography because I like the abstractness that can be achieved.  I really didn’t do much to this photo other than boost the clarity a bit.  I used my 35mm 1.8 Prime lens with the 20mm extension tube.  Wow!  I’m kind of blown away with how much detail you can capture in an image . . . so anxious to do some more experimenting!  Can you guess what this is?  (Hint: it is a self portrait)
