    And before anyone asks again: no filter. No Photoshop. A tiny aperture is all that does the trick. F29, fyi.

    They are all so beautiful Corinna! 2 and 4 are my favorites. But you did an amazing job on all of them.

    Beautiful! Love that star effect. My faves are also 2 and 4 (I like how the 'leaves' are backlit).

    Wow... stunning and very VERY cool effect. I've never seen such beautiful stars. I do those in my night-time shots... haven't seen it in daylight before.

    Thanks for sharing! Very very pretty.

    Thanks all, Mersad, Anty, Matt and Manaheim.
    Whenever we get this effect, i.e. droplets on the plants and the sun out lighting them all up and making them sparkle, I have to go out and try this again, I don't know why. I am so fascinated by those sparkling droplets!

    Ah, and one thing I forgot to mention is that my lens was set to "macro" mode (that mode the Sigma lenses can take up when extended to between 200 and 300mm), which accounts for the background blurriness, even at f29).

    I like them, but looks like the ISO was a touch high. Really great composure though!

    You're right, in "macro" at f29, not even bright sunlight seems to be enough at lower ISO for handheld photography (and these cannot be taken with the camera on tripod, not that I would know how), so in order to work with the very far extended lens at such a small aperture, you need to get short enough exposure times. I should have run these through NeatImage, but I didn't feel it too necessary to do so. But you are right, at ISO 800, my camera does begin to show noise!
