Wow, that is so interesting and pretty. I love that amazing focus popping up out of that dreamy blur. This would be a great foreground bokeh photo too!

i hadnt seen this one of yours before .. its stunning .. so beautiful the way the flowery things seem to be reaching out .. the colouring is so soft and lovely with the deeper red contrasting .. the little droplets are excellent elements in this macro .. great title .. :)

Very nice selective focus, but perhaps a touch too centered.

Nice photo. If the dew drop on top of the flower had more focu, it would have had more of an effect.

i think a vertical orientation here would have been better

Nice lighting and the pastels are very pleasing to look at. I think the hint of noise gives the image a bit of texture which I like. Only thing I don't care for is the centered composition and how the water droplet gets so little play on the bud. Might have had a bit more impact shot from a different angle to give that droplet its moment in the limelight.

Nice detail, if the Depth Of field was a touch better, It would have been great. Of course, DOF is the biggest problem with these sort of shots.
