Rained the night before. I always love how raindrops look on leaves etc... Saw these in a web and figured I better take the shot. At first when I took it I was not thinking of the challenge. Liked how it came out and figured I would enter it into the Free Study. Pretty much basic editing. Still don't feel comfortable with advanced so I definately not going to feel comfortable with expert. Hoping this does well. This is going to be an intersting challenge because my 13 yeard old daughter has entered a photo in this same challenge that is going to give my photo a run for its money. I hope my photo does well but especially hope she does well. She is very creative.

Nice finish!! I'll have to check and see where you are compared to your daughter. I bet it was really close. Ahh... so much talent in one family. :)

An interesting little wonderland...the spiderweb makes for a very wonderful texture. With lots of interest with the leaves and water droplets. Well done!

Love this one! The layers and line of leaves make a beautiful composition and the droplets on the delicate web really make this a WOW photo. You have a very good eye to find this "gem" and you have photographed it perfectly!

I think this is a calming shot. Although I cant vote on this, I would of voted it a 10. The spindles of webs are so neat and clean. The water looks refreshing! The leaves are unbelivabley green that they make me want to wear something gree. I love it!
