Challenge: Free Study 2012-06 (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Nikon D700
Lens: Nikon AF Micro-Nikkor 60mm f2.8D
Location: My kitchen
Date: Jun 25, 2012
Aperture: f16
ISO: 800
Shutter: 1/125 s
Date Uploaded: Jun 29, 2012

My doc recently gave me a prescription for Vitamin D capsules and when I went to take the first one I saw, to my delight, that they were small, round and transparent. Just like tiny water drops.
I immediately got out my camera and took some photos of them on their own but the result was a bit disappointing, so I combined them with the leaf and that looked a lot better. Ended up taping the leaf so that it was round too and, after a LOT of experimenting, was quite pleased with the final result.
I very seldom enter a FS but it was the perfect opportunity to show you this - not in a million years did I expect it to do so well, though...

Thanks for the comments and the fabulous score. Iím stunned... have been the whole week.
