More experimenting with water drops and reflections. Again, it took a lot of patience and time to get the reflections in focus and positioned in a good spot.

Excellent technique here Karen. I am sorry I only gave you a 7 for this - i should have voted it higher but I am growing a bit jaded with the 'objects in droplets' shots - one of those effects of being around here a while. I need to remember that all these shots should be taken at face value and vote accordingly. However, this one is awesome and you have done this approach very well. The colors are rich and not overdone, the details delightful, and the multiple drops is just an added bonus. Good work.

Congrats on the Top 5 Karen. Suspected this was yours. Wonderfully done.

Great job Karen. Excellent clarity in the drops (you're right about the difficulty in getting a good focus in the drops). Congrats on 4th place.

Excellent, very nicely done.

I think you'd have been better off without the large drop on the right and just gone with one. Other than that, and this type of imagery being somewhat cliche-ish now at DPC, it's a fun photo and the bg color is great. Good luck!

Id love to be able to do this
Colour and execution stunning 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/14/2009 02:13:39 AM
wow, stunning capture. I know this has been done many times, but you've managed to find a nice angle and line of composition. the dark part in the left bottom corner is the only minor distraction.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/14/2009 12:10:10 AM
This is fabulous! I'm predicting top 10 for you.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/13/2009 07:08:43 PM
Very well executed. The two droplets remind me of eyes, so that's a bit of a distraction, IMHO. 7

Very nice....but very typical. I'm tired of the reflection in the water drop bit. So, no points for creative thinking but you get a 5 for composition and exposure. I don't like the dark hole at the bottom....doesn't fit with the light, airy feeling of the rest of the photo.

These are tough shots. Nicely captured.
