There was just a lot of really good photography uploaded this last week, especially in the weekend challenges.
Two photographers, in particular really caught my eye. They were Frogdaily and P71.
As you can see, I have chosen Frogdaily’s magnificent image titled “WaterDrops” for the POTW.
There is something about this shot that is really special. Sure, it is a technical achievement. But, it also has some… hard to describe… special quality.
Here is what I wrote under the posted picture, and I really think it quantifies my feelings about the photograph.
“This looks unearthly. It could be anything from a microscopic biological organism all the way to an interstellar galaxy. Great shot!”
It truly is a winning photograph in my perspective. Congratulations Frogdaily (a.k.a. Belinda.)
Now let’s talk about Pat. Man! He was on fire this last week. There were two images that he uploaded that were technically well done and also crossed the line into artistic achievement.
I’ll post links to these two pictures below.
Also, if you haven’t done so already- check out the Weekend Photography Challenge #449 Abstract. You’ll be blown away by the fantastic photography!

Kudos Belinda for the technical ability to make such a beautiful image. And beyond that for me it’s just a pleasure to look at. Reminded me of something, maybe a tree or an umbrella, I might see in a Dr. Seuss book. 🙂

It’s not that long ago you were asking David about water drop photography Belinda. This image really is stunning. Your choice of lighting and fluid have artfully created a real winner! Congrats to you.
Nice to see you getting recognition too Pat. Pretty cool for your first outing with a new technique.

Congratulations Belinda on a truly outstanding POTW. I get an oriental vibe from it…perhaps fom the chinese hat shape and the gentle curve of a very slim Geisha.
Pictures like this are like gifts to those of us who have yet to delve into the craftsmanship involved in creating such wonderful images. Thank you for the joy of it.
PS: for some reason I always thought Frogdaily was a male moniker?
Congrats Patrick too. Great creativity in your images mate!

Super images both of you! Pat – you are making me want to get the steel wool out! Fantastic image. And Belinda – the water drop image is just gorgeous. “Otherworldly” is a great way to describe it.
