    I took this photo of a raindrop on my window after a storm. I love the way it looks like there i a little mini solar system in the background. Let me know what you think! :)

    Both shot with Nikon D90, Sigma 105mm macro, 1/1000s ISO200, F/20 in natural light.

    The first one is a beautiful abstract photo. The second one does not seem to have the same power. Nicely seen.

    The second is supposed to focus on strictly inside the drop, as in the entire system is contained inside it. I like the first better too, though. Thanks alot! I value your opinion particularly.

    1st shot is excellent. Love it, love it. I'm a big fan of abstract (to the point of knowing nothing about what you're looking at) and used to do digital manipulation just for that feel. #1 gives a great sense of abstract and yes, it does look like a universe/space photo which makes it even cooler. Great job.

    Thanks alot Nate.

    Just for clarification, there has been no manipulation. I put the sun a tad to the right of the drop, and that created all that was needed (And how I got 1/1000s at F/20 and ISO200. :D ).

    Thanks guys.

    Cool. It looks like there has been a hole punched from one universe into another.

    I thought it was actually a night time shot with stars.

    Well done!
