The rose itself overwhelms the raindrops. Gotta look too hard for the drops. Also looks a little oversharpened and isn't focused as sharply as it needs to be. Would benefit from even shallower DOF to blur the background more.

I can see how the rose was offset in the composition. It's a bit sad that the bud had to be cut off because I think it would have been a lovely addition to the composition. This might be a little overexposed but it could be because it was overcast and so there was a lack of shadows and that cut down on the contrast. Even so, underexposing might have brought out more detail.

Beautifully vibrant red! I wish the drops were a little more prominent, but the point still gets across. Good job! 8o)
