Water Drop

At last night’s Macro Roundtable, Craig brought a setup with water drops from above and a U.S. flag behind a bucket of water. Using my Nikon Macro flashes (under and over the lens), I was able to capture the reflection of the flag in a water drop. In Lightroom, I cleaned up some of the reflections from the flash and then increased the saturation of the blues and decreased the saturation of the reds. I also masked all but the drop for sharpening.

  • you know that a backwards US Flag (with the stars on the Right side of the stripes) means going into combat or “never retreat”? Just an interesting observation–are you pro-war? 🙂

  • Lynn Pitts, it was the only way to get the flag the right way in the reflection of the water droplet.

  • Cool! I didn’t click the image before…only looked at it on the FB page, which isn’t big enough to show the reflection in the droplet–very, very cool! 🙂
