Critique Club Review:

Very interesting photo.

I think the depth of field tripped you up a bit here. The droplets on the right are nice and sharp. Those on the left are a bit soft. They make an interesting contrast, but not quite enough of a contrast to show that it is intentional.

I think it also hurts a bit that the largest drops, in the center of the image, are the softest. This is the area where the eye tends to go in a picture like this.

Lighting, brightness and contrast are done very well. This picture works so much better than it would have if it were done in a bunch of colors. Good job keeping it monochrome.

I also like your choice on the border. It does a nice job of complimenting the image, rather than competing with it.

The balance between the smaller drops and the larger ones really makes this very interesting. Monochrome is a nice touch, too. Good shot.

Almost looks like reptile skin of some kind, and it's mostly all in focus! great!

great subject and composition. the tones are very strong. sharper overall focus would have substantially increased the impact.
