It is amazing how a little water can make things more interesting. These day lilies are beautiful all on their own but adding water drops make the image quite different. Those little spots of water shining in the sun and dripping off the edges adds another layer of things to look at.
Some photographers carry spray bottles or splash pond water onto subjects they are shooting. I guess that is fine but I prefer to see this when it occurs naturally. Catching the early morning dew or times just after a rain are wonderful. These times also seem to have more interesting light in general so it is a great opportunity to get special images.
There’s no substitute for great light and an interesting subject. With a little luck, you might get some water elements included. This is the best!
