Jewels in the Sun

I found a beautiful macro today by Laetitia Petrussa @laetitiapetrussa of water drops on a peacock feather. I liked it so much I shamelessly attempted to reproduce something similar ... Please check out Laetitia's drops, they really are fabulous:)
Wonderful colours, nice close up details

Lovely colours. Best flattery to imitate!

Good ideas deserve to be used as many times as possible! I like how feathers look like fabric!

I guess from the exif info this was with an extension tube?

Beautiful Macro...Fav

@miseria I used a Micro Nikkor 55mm lens coupled with a 2x teleconverter. I still need to look into extension tubes. Am impressed you can tell all that from the exif information!I

@fbailey It's the telltale "0mm". That usually means no lens info was communicated kind of thing, which is usually due to something being between the lens or body! :D

The ones I use are really nice (and really cheap) but for whatever reason they only make them for Canon, Sony, Panasonic and Olympus! D:

A stunning photo. I love the colours and that little raindrop. It has such a soft, dreamy feel. Fav

Lovely. Isn't it so that all the shots you see is inspiration to create someting of your own.
posted December 29th, 2017  
Fav. Stunning job.
posted December 29th, 2017  
That is superb. Nothing shameful about trying to replicate a shot. Isn't there a saying about imitation being the best form of flattery?
