Raindrops crowd the leaves of a rose bush, ready to ride the slippery slope.
(By the way, no cropping here. This is the size as originally shot. An experiment to see what the iphone can do. ;-)

Wow, here are some really lovely bubble details to study. A great composition, here I specially like the contrast between the very clear water bubbles and the soft and somewhat dark mod in the rest of the picture. It´s so beautiful and artistic.

So rich in detail and with that sense of instant involvement that the use of a camera-phone can often bring.
