Insomnia by KVirtanen Insomnia by KVirtanen
Some macro stuff for a change : ) I'm extremely pleased in how this turned up. I used my own special technique to illuminate the droplet inside the leaf. The leaf was the just a pinch bigger than the nail of your little finger.

RAW, white balance, crop.

I'll probably change the title to something more original soon. This was fun and gave me all new inspiration, so expect to see more of these in the future ;)

Thanks for watching..! :handshake:


EDIT: Ha, figured out a better title! :p (Water Drop before)

Insomnia by =KVirtanen Comment by *amarilli "I have been watching this very sensitive photograph for a while and I have enjoyed most of his works, but when I saw this one, it hit me as something really special, first for the originality of the concept and also visually it's such a soft, poetic, harmonious and moving shot."

Hi there ..! :D Thanks! I've ordered this as a postcard, and the color is true to the one here (so I guess blue is the color). I'm using a calibrated monitor and the colors are calibrated according to the color profile from DeviantART.
