I photographed this water drop with my 200mm macro lens early one morning this week. It was very nice of Phyllis to drive the kids to school so I could have the time to compose this image in peace and quiet.
It’s a simple image, but I like it.
I’ve been asked a number of times whether the sunburst was added in post-processing. The answer is no, this image except for minor level adjustments and sharpening has not been Photoshopped.
There’s a major divide between photographers–people who understand the principles and techniques of classic photography, and can aspire to create images–and digital technicians. As wonderful and glorious as the digital technologies are, the best bet is still to start with a good photograph.
