This one's gonna bomb, but I love it. An amazing cavalcade of dew on a leaf, not the spray bottle DPC dew, but the real deal, in all its insanity. I see a whole Universe in there. Don't you? ;)

I cropped it. I used channel mixer to make it b/w. Then curves.

and oh yeah, I used a very very sexy lens...

Lovely b&w and an unusual and touching take on the challenge. I believe there's a whole universe just in that one big dollop of dew at the front. Only detraction in the shot, for me, is the visible sensor dust in the background (if I'm correctly identifying it as sensor dust).

This one goes into the lighting challenge.

This is textured dew at its finest and an excellent move to B&W.

Wow! Way cool, OOB, and the fast voters would never contemplate this and see your suns and horizons. They didn't get mine either, which scored almost worst ever but is the "best of my worst". <g>

I don't get a sense of distance here and it is difficult to see what the subject is.

I think this may work better in colour.
