Wink singing love songs



I took this one quickly tonight to remind myself that I need to do a valentine droplet shot.

I don't like the minor reflections...definitely detract from the shot. Will have to work on that in the retake.

"I wanna see you and me happy, together singing love songs..." Fleming & John

This is not a photoshop trick - it's just tiny water droplets refracting that spectrum, shot in ambient room light with a 100mm macro lens.

I like this alot. I don't have any idea how you did this.

I would guess that you had a smooth surface, then placed water droplets in heart shape. Then photographed. How did you get the spectrum? Is that a natural effect when adding light to water?

I think this is really cool. I also need to get some equipment so I can do some macro. I have a lens that does macro but that does not get close enough.
