    I really like #1 best in terms of composition. I just wish more of the photo was in focus. There probably wasn't enough light for a smaller aperture.

    Cloning is easy. Hold alt and left click your mouse to pick the point to clone from, then just left click to paste this part onto other parts. Use a soft edged brush and a low opacity, usually (30-50%), for smooth results. You can also use the healing brush, which automatically blends things for you. It won't work well 100% of the time however.

    i agree, #1 is the best out of the bunch... it has the best composition

    Andrea,

    Here is a clone-out on your #4 image. I cloned the twig out, I also framed it and did a USM filter and tweaked levels.

    I also touched up some of your other images to show you what you can do with post-processing. I posted them on my server at:

    great shots! It's hard to capture drops in nature when it's not a controled environment.
    good job!
