This was my first time trying a water drop photo. Took ages to get it all in place. Used glycerin mixed with water.

Thank you Teri, Jo Anne, Jeff, Anna, Linda and Laurie :-)

It was a lot of trial and error to get it all in place. I used natural light (northern window/over cast day) so had to use a slow shutter speed, which meant several ended up blurry. The glycerin holds the drops in place really well. But I had to be careful not to bump the table.

Used an eye dropper to get the glycerin/water drops in position. Had to try out different petals to find one that would hold the drops. Then had to position the reflecting flower in the right spot.

My white balance was off and that top part is actually a white board that was in the background. When I hit auto levels it turned the color blue. I liked the look and left it.

I took about 100 photos and this was the best of the bunch, but not as sharp as I had hoped :-)

I will post a photo of the set up in a little bit.

SPECTACULAR image Susan and thanks so much for sharing what worked for you! Steven sent me the link to this photo as I had discussed with him something similar I was trying just last week. I think using glycerin rather than water is key - it holds together better. Of course any camera movement (or hint of a breeze) totally annalihlates the image, and I was shooting outdoors. Anyway, well done!
