All macro pictures shot with hand-held D800 and 16-35 mm f/4. Although the 16-35 mm is a wide-angle, it can be used to shoot close-up details thanks to the minimal focusing distance of 29 cm, with a max. magnification ratio 1:4

It for freezing time! If the light is strong enough for low ISO… if the subject is as thin as a f/2.8 focus plane… then the 1/8000 time option of the D800 let you capture unusual points of view. Like these upside-down single droplets out of a fountain . Click the picture to magnify.  Here below the full size picture: find the waterman!
