I checked out the color purple and the main thing that kept coming up was royalty. I also wanted to try the reflections in water drops thing and I figured it could represent the many faces and uncountable number throughout history of royal figures. Mainly I just wanted to try the water thing though. No idea what water has to do with royalty.

I like it, but this type of image has been so over-done on this site...

Looks like beyond basic editing but what do I know...it's cool! Hooray for not flowers!

The image itself doesn't attract me much
But it is an interesting technique: I wonder how you did it.

Great shot, I like it a lot. The colour looks more like violet than purple to me though. Excellent work nevertheless.

Droplet shots never cease to amaze me! Very cool! Oddly, the crown looks a bit "oversharp".
