27 Mar 15. Heading out the other morning early I encountered a bit of fog which also meant that I was seeing lots of little drops of water hanging onto just about anything possible along with a slight breeze moving everything of a small nature. A tree in a local parking lot provided an opportunity to shoot some drops of dew hanging from a red branch and also reflecting the tiny limbs nearby. I took a few shots at different angles trying to compensate for the movement which although not much, was magnified by the closeness of the subject to the lens. This was my favorite of the group. It isn't as sharp as I would have liked, but if you move back about 36 inches from the screen it will be acceptable sharp, sorta like looking at a billboard from the road.
I took the base image, cropped it for best composition, did a bit of detail extraction on the dew drops, then added a tiny bit of micro contrast boost. Nikon D300s; 18 - 200; Aperture Priority; ISO 200; 1/500 sec @ f / 7.1.
