Su, Delores, Connie, Ron & Thomas - thanks so much for the great comments! Thomas - this was shot with a Sigma CHZ 28~300mm, f/3.5~6.3 lens. #136989

Gary H. Minish level-deluxe July 08, 2003

A great find and an exceptional photo, Gary! The exposure captures the light reflections perfectly and the short DOF keeps the focus on the drops. Topped off with crystal clear detail too! This one should be a winner! Congratulations so far :-) #137739

Gary W. Lake July 08, 2003

Thanks a lot Gary - high praise indeed! This was one of those mornings when there was dew all over everything. I found several webs and took a lot of shots, but was very fortunate to find this one as the sun came up. It was oriented so that I could get it from a flat front view against the morning sunlight, allowing the shallow DOF to work. #137766

Patricia Marroquin July 11, 2003
