I know that I originally saw this weed used by ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Ursula. I asked her where she had gotten the weed and when I was in California 3 years ago I gathered up some and transported them (yes, over state lines) in a Jiffy Peanut Butter container....they have survived well as I take good care of them. I love how delicate they are...and I hope that you too see the beauty in them.

Meant to add that I used the Focus Stacking application from PsCC...it did an amazing job and really easy to do....

*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

Congratulations on your result, well deserved, meets the challenge well.

A gorgeous image, it captures the delicacy of the plant very well, it is also very effective in its simplicity, the drops, of course, are essential for the challenge but cliched as they maybe they are still an appealing addition.

I like the composition and repetition in the soft focus background. The exposure suits the subject well. You have received some good critique amongst your comments most of which I agree with. I wish you hadn't included the outtake because I am torn between the two, I like the symmetry of the outtake but I prefer the near mono of your entry but they are both excellent images.

Although I am familiar with focus stacking I have never used it myself. The DOF must have been very shallow if this is the result of 6 images but it is very well executed and perfect for the subject.

Thanks for another lovely entry, your images are a pleasure to critique, Sid

Nice. The droplet on the rightmost seedling, where the stem joins the wispy bits, is a little distracting. But other than that it's a pleasing shot.

Lovely! The nice mute colours work really well for this kind of subject. Perhaps a little bit of burning in some of the corners would draw my attention even more to the lovely drops. Or I might be wrong :) Best of luck!
