Greetings from the Critique Club:

Dew was your entry to the Delicate challenge and it works quite well, though a closer shot of the droplets would have improved your score, but then is grass!

As you have no processing steps included in your comments, I have to assume you used very little. Perhaps sharpening and curves. The image appears a little dark due to it being predominantly green. You managed a good DOF whilst using f2.8. The largest drop is the focusing point and the veins of the grass show quite nicely at this point. When entering a challenge or posting on DPC, please use the maximum size allowed 640x640, or 640 on the longest size. It looks as though you have used on-camera flash.

Due to the nature of the subject, the background is a little messy. The focal point in central to the image and some do not like this format, placing the main subject off centre is more appealing to viewers.

As previously stated, the messy, dark background fails to lift the image to its full potential. Try reshooting using a larger leafed plant, the results will be easily visible to you. Ensure you use maximum size for entries, your score will be better and your images will have greater impact. There are no major faults and with more experience of challenges you will develop an eye for those tiny things that can make or break an image. This image must have been close to what the viewers were seeking as the score is better than average for this size image. I hope this is helpful and constructive.

I have this image in my mind now, of you down on your hands and knees, with your tush stuck up in the air, squinting through the viewfinder and your neighbors saying "Look that crazy person is at it again !" Nice capture.

Nice capture. Love the detail and the rich green color against some black areas are fabulous. I like the way you positioned the blade with the water drops on the frame
