Pink Geranium Reflections After the Rain by 


It rained most of the day yesterday and Rick and I kept hoping it would stop before dark so we could get out and shoot water droplets on the plants. Fortunately, it stopped about 6:00 so out we went, and I didn’t come back in until about 7:30. The garden was a wonderland of droplets everywhere, and of course I couldn’t stop shooting! I took over 100 shots and this one was my favorite.

I did some basic adjustments in LR5, then some more in PS CS6 and added two textures from French Kiss Textures at reduced opacity: Tableaux Smoothie and Tableaux Windsong.

Nikon D700 with Nikon 105mm micro lens.

    Bravo, Anita! You successfully embraced the little geraniums in your droplets… And the bokeh colors against the bright greens of the leaf and stem…perfection! And a fave!

    Wow, how beautifully you pulled this off with sparkling refracted images in each droplet! Some people go to such lengths to set these kinds of shots up in controlled conditions (indoors, studio lighting, everything staged). Those are often beautiful, but what I really admire is one like yours that is composed and created in concert with nature on her terms. Outstanding work, Anita!

  • Thank you so much, Celeste – your lovely comments are always a joy to read and this one is particularly wonderful. I really appreciate your support and encouragement. And thanks for the fave too!
