    One morning ...

    ... I've noticed the pattern made by a quite "generous" morning dew. I took the first shot and the color really impressed me. Try to guess where these droplets were ...

    One morning ...

    ... on my car's tail light
    This morning the same happened and I tried to get better results (by using an f/22 to get a bigger DoF); well it turned out better but still not as much in focus as I wanted.
    I couldn't use a tripod because I don't have a 2m one so focus stacking was out of question.

    Guess I'll try again in the future.

    C&C welcome

    Eugene,

    Love the capture. That color truly pops- I believe that would be a good example of "cerise" (somehow I seem to be learning more about color since I decided to make a project of learning B&W currently) I think your background, focus and DoF are ideal. You might want to clone out the 2 circular reflections on the lower curviilnear area. Very minor distractions on a very fne image.

    Very cool!

    You could always try putting your tripod on a table or something to get the height if you wanted to take multiple shots and focus stack them. But I quite like the DoF you have got in this one.

    Nicely seen and a nice shot. Also indicates your car was pretty clean. A dirtier surface would produce less well defined droplets.

    Thank you all for your comments

    I did try to clone out the reflections and it didn't work; I'm afraid it's beyond my PP ablity. The colour changes along and makes cloning a painful job. I guess I'll leave it as it is and I hope to get better shots in the future.

    Start with a lower opacity (27%) and lower fill rate (45%) and build it up slowly. 100% across the board is too harsh for this type of edit. I did several runs across the image using these settings and had decent to very good results, depending on how much intensity I felt they needed to lose.
