Peacock Feather Drop by Creative--Dragon Peacock Feather Drop by Creative--Dragon
Waterdrop on a Peacock feather.
I used holigraphic paper underneath to help achieve an interesting bokeh.

I love the vibrant colours in this photo: the blues and purples of the light, and the warm ochres, yellows and greens of the feather.
Without the central focus on the droplet and the individual lines of feather, it'd be hard to know what this photo was of - the bokeh is really quite psychedelic.
The clarity of the droplet is amazing, though. The way you've managed to focus on the droplet and the area around and yet keep the foreground, background and edges out of focus and full of beautifully hazy light is fantastic. To me, the circular fragments of light around the droplet look as if they've just floated from it, and the central position of the droplet creates this effect.
In the foreground, there are sections of clear feathers. The light on them is green on some parts, and purple/blue on others. This draws my attention to below the feather. Without the caption I'd have no idea there was holographic paper underneath because it fits into the psychedelic feel of the photo so well. It also gives the photo a little more depth, as do the top corners of the photo. They're full of light, with a black background - subtly hinting at whatever is beyond the feather and paper.
Despite the colour, the light and the business of this shot, there's a definite delicate feel. This is taken so close-up that it magnifies the details to an amazing level, but we still get a sense of the feather's intricacy and the droplet's delicacy. I think you've mastered every aspect of this photo♥
It would be interesting to see a different angle of the droplet/feather/holographic paper setup.

Most of my photos go through some sort of post processing... This photo was cropped a bit, and I adjusted the contrast and saturation to really make things pop...
