Drop of life.

I did use the 25mm extension ring, with the 100mm macro. It gave me a little more magnification, which I needed for a drop of water :)
Great shot!
The refraction in the water drop makes it really cool.
In addition please also share the exposure data, esp. f-stop and distance. Thanks in advance.
sometimes you have to close your eyes to see properly.

Thanks Maximilian. The details are: ISO400  2.5 seconds @ f11. I used the Macro twin flash and the distance was probably around 100mm (it was pretty much the minimum focus distance of the 100mm lens plus 25mm extension tube).

It was raining at the time, and I've discovered how well the 5D3 takes moisture. Not that I want to get it wet, but, sometimes the best time to take pic's of water drops is in the rain :)
