This is a really simple picture, but at the same time, it's very striking! The image almost feels "alive" in a sense, the water droplets really do look as though they are about to roll or drop, and the way the droplets have caught the light adds to the charm of this picture :) How did you manage to make single doplets of water, rather than just a wet flower? (if that question makes sense)

As I said to someone before about this, it was actually a shot I wasn't planning on using (glad I did now haha~) so I was actually really happy with the editing. The editing is what makes it look good xD

I literally poured water on the bunch of flowers xD Got water all over the carpet but it's the best way to do it, in my experience. Spraying makes the droplets too small, but just pouring it gets bigger drops, because the water kind of... runs together. It's pretty easy ^^ I actually hate the droplets right in the center of the flower; there's too much water gathered there (that's what I get for just pouring the water willy-nilly).

But yes, that is my secret to how I get the droplets :3 not really a secret~

Yeah, I saw that... I'm glad you did too, I likes it :) It's nice when something you're unsure about gets good feedback isn't it xD.

I like the droplets in the center, they kinda look like they're coming out of the flower xD Did you shake it? I would have thought that just pouring the water on would make it just a "wet flower" rather than create the droplets... I'm wrong obviously xDDD

So, reiterating my previous point, nice one :)

Again with the gradients this time.. you know what you're doing when you want to visually enhance the flowers. :nod:

Thanks ^^ It was actually a picture I wasn't going to use but then I played around with the tint in PSP and it became the best one xD
