I like how it feels like it's glowing from the middle out. Not sure how you got the effect but it definitely feels like it's alive.

I really like the color and composition. Also like the use of negative space. IMO would have left the droplets at left in greyscale, it pulls the eye away from the center of the rose. Great shot non the less.

really really cool, especially in the left half of the pic, just wish the core of the flower was in the depth of field
