Hey, someone gave you a 1!! A lovely crisp clean image, at first I thought the 'cropped' bit of the stamen didn't work now but I like it - great shot and well placed :)

As a new member I'm discovering some older shots - oh my! This is wonderful. Nothing about it I don't like. I'd have voted 10 for sure!

This is gorgous, the water droplets add that extra element that really makes this stand out. I can see that many others agreed as well with your score, 7th place is quite an accomplishment if you ask me! Keep up the good work!!

So delicate and sensual. Bumping up.

Love the soft focus, and the beautiful highlights on the droplets. I'm a drop freak, myself, so was really attracted to this one. Nice job!!

Very pretty image. Nice focus and detail. Very light ovrexposure in catchlights in each drop of water detract from overall quality of image (because there are so manyof them!) and would like to have seen 5 more pixels at bottom (end of stamen cropped off) rather than the frame which is far too strong for such a light photo.

the water droplets with their little reflections are a little too much, they take attention away from the beautiful blossom

the day i can take a pic like this I will be ready to die. Excellent.10 ( What lens did you use?)

Very nice closeup. Overall this is excellent. My one small gripe is the pinpoint of light in each drop. It almost seems artificially placed. Since I have never done a shot like this I am guessing it is a bright light source. I wonder if diffusing it would have improved it?

pristine

Excellent macro, the lighting and colors are great... it just seems slightly oversharpened.

This is one one the most beautiful flower shots I've seen, but where is the beginning. I suppose spring will work. I would have waited for the free challenge not to be degraded with the definition of this challenge. Good luck.
