Thanks for the nice feedback.

Not a selective desat, just a gray concrete wall behind everything. The 'rain' is a waterfall from above. Natural light (also from above).

This is a really beautiful photo. I didn't end up voting on the free study, but I did glance through them. This one really caught my eye. Looking back through the entries again, I love it even more. Going in the favs!

A beautiful Japanese maple looks like to me. imo i think that the water drop or whatever doesn't seem to work for me but the rest does

this has such a great feel to it - the placement of 'rain' just out of the reach of the tree - awesome!

the "dilineation" between the two elements is awesome. very cool shot.

Love the split nature of this, and the red is wonderful. Has a very real sense of life and a joy to it.

Very different..but cool. I like the bright red colors, good job.

really spectacular image, but there are tow things I think you could have done to make it much better - both imo of course. First a slower shutter speed to blur the water more would have been great, second crop from the bottom above the branch with leaves leaving the frame. Beautiful colors and finishing - the lighting on the tree is really fantastic. One of my favorites from the challenge

Amazing composition, the tree reaching out for the water drops, perfect!

i like the red leaves, active water drops and overall tones. i wonder if you walked to where the droplets were behind the tree and how visual effect would be. No, 2nd thought--I like it as is making it more a interesting and composition.

Very pretty composition and coloring here.

Great colors and idea. Very symmetrical and balanced. Bumping to an 8.

Wonderful and perfect title. The selective desat works in this case. I love the points of the maple leaves in juxtaposition with the blurred drops of the water. This has a nice balance and symmetry, but not in the typical sense.

Lovely composition and colours :)

I like the way the rain looks, and I like the division of the frame in half, and I like the strange mottled background. This elevates what could have been a corny concept. You have not exploited your model! :) 7
