1/350" at f5.6. ISO 100
December 29th, 2007

Since last week's photo was of thousands of leaves and colors, I thought I'd choose something simple in contrast. The dew drops hanging from the bare winter branches were like tiny jewels growing as fruit. To capture them, I got in close and tried to separate the droplets from the surrounding branches.

Once I got it home, I liked the shot, but the reflection in the water and the appearance of crystal still didn't stand out enough, so I went with black and white. Then I over processed it to give it some grain and tried for more of a film feel instead of digital.
