f4 dew drop

I am sort of proud of this picture because it isn't cropped, and it's hardly edited in post-processing (adjusted histogram and ran through a light noise removal; resized and sharpened for web; that's it). I am not sure why that makes me proud, but it does.

Hi Ursula, Beautiful image. I think you are proud because like me your goal is to take the perfect shot. Even though I love to do post processing because it is so much fun and you can be so artistic. I still long to take a picture that stands totally on its own. I believe this shot does just that, congratulations. #221007
