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.

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 :)

Just a small flower I saw at Falmouth Spring, FL.  Used a pair of small Surefires to illuminate the blooms.

I've only had mine for a few months,  but I love it.
Sharp, light and great fun to use.
All taken hand held, natural light on my 5d3.

Really nice pictures, serendipidy!

I mostly like the palm leaves. Because of that geometrical pattern and the tiny white hair and waterdrops.
About composition: did you try to do this motive diagonal? (Not this specific picture. Surely won't work. I meant reframing)
Might give it an extra touch if it brakes out of the rectangular order.
