Lady’s Mantle foliage has so many interesting textures and shapes, and water droplets on them are especially delightful. I shot this one in my yard almost a month ago, and I cropped it to highlight the most interesting part of the leaf and the very cool droplet near the bottom.
Nikon D700 and Nikon 105mm f/2.8 micro lens.
I used Topaz Clarity to enhance the foliage detail, as well as Nik Color Efex Pro Contrast Color Range. Textures are Aventura and Solstice Puissance from French Kiss Textures.
