After seeing the water drop photo a few posts up we had a bit of rain so I thought I would give it another try. Never been able to get what I want [anything decent] with water drops. Still not happy with my results but getting closer.

These were on an air fern we have in our yard, and I have noticed it gets nice water droplets in places where the water can seep down the fronds about 2mm diameter

The first try was focusing on the outside of the droplet, problem is the reflections on the inside were all out of focus
This was a fairly big crop.

Well they are all very big crops.

For my second try I picked another drop and tried to use the focus peaking to get some of the reflections on the inside in focus.
[I get board quickly and picked another drop but I suppose that makes it hard to compare results, oh well...]
This time the internal reflections were better but the outside went out of focus

For my last try I thought I would try the set the camera and rock back and forth to get the focus, got to be kidding no way I could do that as I am guessing about 1mm either way makes a difference. Back to bracing as best as I could and using peaking to see the inside of the drop
I managed to get an angle where I got a bit of a flair to add some interest, and tried another view to get two in semi focus.

Well a bit of fun for the day, and learn't I cant use the rock back and forward technique to get something in focus

Stuck inside re-process of a photo from over three years ago. Bit of a random pick but trying to get motivated to get the camera out again after a bit of a break.
