“Honey” an interesting description for the challenge. Its has a long history of human consumption and a commonly used word addressing for the loved ones.

Today I got one, a gift for my wife. An interesting subject "honey" comes into my idea for doing this. I drawn a "big love" using Coreldraw and cut it out from A4 size paper.

I tested numbers of shot. The reflection in drop are exactly like fish eye. Everything 180 degree (probably more) will be reflected in it.

Macro life size is tough for basic editing challenge. I mean no spot editing allow for removing tiny discrepancies except sensor dust.

The blue background (skies) was actually a white backdrop. Behind it, a speedlight with handmade snoot filled with black straws and wrapped with blue color glass paper. It could be spot around the tip of love shape tiny reflection.

Please feel free to give comment and critique, thanks for the reading. Cheers!

Nice idea and timing,but the brolly(top) and crinkly paper(bottom) spoil it for me.

Would be better if cropped tighter at the top, where the cup is almost totally out. I love the drop, with the message inside. Good shot

you shoot with an umbrella, huh?

crop works well, not liking the red bit in the lower right. wish the spoon was more attractive.

I've given this an 8, but if the background for the heart had been ironed (inside the drop) and if you and the umbrella didn't show in the reflection... it would have been more. I know... I know... tough crowd. :)
