Hi Folks,

In the dim light, immediately after a sunset, I took this capture from after-shower droplets resting on a small leaf, the leaf which was separated from its family (the tree) and lying on the bank of a rivulet passing through the City Center of Duesseldorf.

Here, I like the contrast between the concrete bank and the tiny spherical droplets which were resting beautifully on it, seems to kindle the leaf to be happy though it had to leave his family (the tree) due to harsh winds during autumn season :)

Therefore, I titled this picture as: "Symbiosis of Feelings", as both the parties (droplets and leaf) are happy to have the friendship and interdependence on each other :)

Hope you like the story ;)

best greetings,

Hi Paras,
A wonderful macro of these droplets on this brown leaf.
Shining drops clear as crystal.
Wonderful reflections and nice contrasts especially between the leaf and the concrete bank of the river.
Nice diagonal composition.
Well done.
My best regards,

dear Paras,
a boat with many tears on it floating on the dark and quiet sea,
melancholic ocean and depressed voyage, but maybe it is real aspect of our life,
in the spheres our memories are saved as shining, but those are simply memories,
all our life is for memories of it,
thank you,

Hi Paras

The diagonal axis adds good dynamism. Superb repetition of the water drops each with a nice mini reflection. Tfs!

you can do better.....scarce detail and definition!
