    Hello,
    To be consistent with the other photography forums I've joined over the past couple of years, I like to submit something of my own before commenting on images from established members. I'm sure that most of my work will be posted in this genre as I'm a big fan of both macro and abstract. It's never easy to pick an image for your first post, but this one is both macro and abstract and the colors remind me that spring is right around the corner on this cold, wet morning. Pretty Wet is from my Naturally Abstract collection and was composed at the Rye Patch in Aiken, SC.

    Welcome to FocalWorld Steven! :)

    It's great to have you join our community here and it's an honor to have you.

    This is a really awesome Macro! Most of us here just kind of play around with macro photography, so it's truly awesome to have someone who actually knows what they are doing. :)

    Wonderful detail, and the drops of water are just awesome!

    Outstanding way to introduce your work Steven. I love the variation in the sizes of water droplets in this miniature scene and the level of detail in the shot.
