Scored pretty high and really did deserve to as the clarity of the flower in that drop is nothing short of amazing. Add to that the bits of bokeh and the crisp vibrant color and you have a winner! Congrats on a top ten in a significant challenge!

Karen! You take water drops to a totally different level. There's nothing "too familiar" about this unique and masterful work of art!

I am guessing this is 21_F.gif KarenNFLD's shot, because it looks like her inspirational poster. Beautiful shot, perfect DOF, and outstanding colour (you like how I used a 'u' in colour?). Hope to see this in the top 10.

This is absolutely incredible. How on earth did you do this?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/24/2010 09:20:40 PM
wow, I love the punch in this...well done 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/24/2010 04:46:47 PM
I'm trying to see if this will motivate me to see beyond the ordinary. :P Seriously, I think this is much better than the one you entered before. The position of the yellow in the background was better in the other photo but overall it was too sharp, IMO. This one has a much more delicate feel to it, which compliments the subject.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2010 09:50:30 PM
Wow, if that is really another flower focused in the lens of a water drop, this is amazing. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2010 09:26:14 PM
Very pretty - perfection on all levels. I'm sure this will do well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2010 03:04:39 PM
Always wanted to try this an dthis works very well. I do believe that the image has to much in it. I would crop it to only have pettal coming in from bottom left corner of frame and take all else out . This according to me would score 10 with better crop. 7

very good shot... i like it very much, good colors, good composition, everything in place correctly. Compliments.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2010 09:29:40 AM
my gosh...this is perfection...I sooooo want to learn how to do this...will you teach me???
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The clarity and sharpness of detail of the reflected flower in the waterdrop is absolutely stunning. The imagery of 'delicate nature' is subtley projected as this tiny waterdrop reflecting the flower as a whole is balanced upon a single petal. And I absolutely love the rich colors of the reddish purples and the sunshine yellows present in this floral shot.

Great work on this

Very nice capture. You did a great job with that reflection.

This is so pretty the colors are popping. Nice going.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2010 12:25:11 PM
Ohhh - that is a goal for 2010 to effectively get a flower reflection shot. This is very pretty.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2010 11:42:08 AM
ok, very, very nice. Wow. Everything seems to work so well together and that drop is crystal clear and sharp as can be.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2010 10:13:06 AM
Really gorgeous use of narrow DOF. I might almost want to exclude the inner part of the flower and just have the petals, but then I guess you'd miss part of that gorgeous bokeh. Great colors and perfect focus on the drop.
