How to Catch Light in a Web

This is a rework of an old shot of mine. One of my first refraction shots. The flash bounces off the background and shines back through the water drops on the spider web. It is a hard crop but it is interesting for the display of refraction, I think.

 

Remember, this is refraction at work, not reflection. Reflection is light bouncing off the surface of something. The drop is a lens. The image you see is light passing through the water and being bent like a wide-angle lens.
