Greetings from the Critique Club

Lovely rose, delightful capture.

And at the outset, I'll say: "they look like bubbles to me. Probably soap bubbles, at that."

While I wish people would not get 'picky' about such things as 'drops' and 'bubbles' they do and that's just a fact of DPC life. When viewers/voters look at a rose, they expect 'drops' and see accordingly. From your score, it's nice to see that many voters did appreciate the fine image you made and its bubbles.

This flower lends itself to many interpretations. Your slightly soft-focus rendition is pleasing and the bubbles turned out nice and sharp, making a good contrast. Colors are excellent, placement in the frame is appealing.

I see you are fairly new to DPC. Keep those nice images coming. I for one look forward to seeing more of your work.

Sorry, I don't see the bubbles. It looks like a rose with drops of water. Pretty image though.

Very beautiful, the nice close crop gets the eye straight to the point with no distractions. I suppose some people will argue that they are not bubbles but water droplets. Personally I'm not that pedantic over such things. My biggest criticism is that the image lacks that final bit of sharpness that would make it great. I can't really tell where the sharpness went but I think you should investigate so you know in the future.

These look more like drops of water then bubbles. It is a beautiful shot.
Better Luck next time.

Excellent beautiful, colorful shot. Love the water droplets. Nothing in this shot makes me think bubbles. But I'd hate to run up against this shot in a flower challenge.

Nice picture of a rose and some drops - but this one doesn't remind me of bubbles at all. Bubbles have air in them. "A bubble is a globule of one substance in another, usually air in a liquid." (Wikipedia) Sorry. :/
