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?
December 28th, 2017  
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:

That is superb. Nothing shameful about trying to replicate a shot. Isn't there a saying about imitation being the best form of flattery?
