    I'm really loving the Sigma 60mm and can't get tired of admiring it's sharpness! So I keep shooting droplets, they're always different.
    After the landscapes through the droplets, I tried some rain-like pictures and with bokeh in the background this time.

    Let me know what you think of them!

    Interesting stuff...I like the 2 just before the last one best...a little touch of black in the droplets.

    Excellent stuff once again Chris!
    Personally I like these better than the previous "landscape through the droplets" ones - seems more "natural" ;)

    Wow, gorgeous results! I think I should have waited on buying the E50f18.

    Oh you can do more or less the same thing with the SEL 50mm. I use extension tubes. If you use extension tubes as well you will get something similar, the 50mm is sharp enough, not as razor sharp but it's good. I think next week or the following one I'll publish an article describing exactely how I "made" all those droplet shots. So for those who can be interested, keep coming back to our website http://ilovehatephoto.com
    There are also tons of other articles that should interest you.
