Tech Data:
Nikon D300
Tamron 180mm 3.5D
Manual Focus 1:2 mag ratio
Manual Exposure @ 1/13 sec F11
ISO 400
WB Daylight
Vivid, Active D-lighting set to normal, Sharpening Low
Flash 4) SB-R200 @ -2.7

I was working on a project for Tamron and had just horrible weather. I was trying to make chicken salad out of chicken poo.

I wanted a bright background, but still blue.
The setting used allowed a blue sky background with just a touch of the flashes reflected (as intended) in the water drops.

I love the lens. And the 4 flash heads were mounted on a ring around the front lens element.

Thanks James

The composition here is outstanding. The UL and LR are crammed to the end and the UR and LL and clean, providing an effective balance.
You can create, Darth ;)

The diagionals and the empty spaces balance out and make it work for me.
Good work.

Composing the image using diagonals is the way to go here as that creates more dynamic impact. Love the color and the dew/rain drops.
