Tear – A Drop of water on the Thorn of a rose refracting a whole rose
A Drop of water on the Thorn of a rose refracting a whole rose. The purple/black background is bokeh rose that the droplet is refracting.

This image is pretty much straight from the camera. The refracted rose and lens flair/star-burst is real :-)

Shot with the Sony Alpha a77 using the Sony 100mm f2.8 Macro Lens. Three flashes, and a bounce card were used.

If you are curious as to how i made this image, here is my 'making of' video – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7K5_qR50c60

SLT-A77V
100mm · f/11.0 · 1/250s · ISO 100

Cool.
I love in-camera techniques.

I think you're on to something...
Are you planning on experimenting any further?

The first words out of my mouth were "That is incredible". Wonderful job.
