Hi there and greetings from the critique club. :)

First of all congratulations on choosing a challenging idea to photograph. The out of focus background is wonderful, however the large amount of stem on the left I do find distracting. The waterdrop itself is well lit, however the hotspot to the right of it a little bit harsh.

with those things considered, it is a nice minimalist photo.

good macro, though i think the focus is just a tiny bit off. i couldn't have done any better myself, though.

Kind of neat, the fuzziness in the upper left corner draws my attention away from the droplet though.

Definitely a challenging shot. Close but I think the focus is a little off. It seems to be to the right of the droplet.

Not sure I wouldn't have done the narrow DoF here. I think the entire stem? should have been in focus with the waterdrop. Good Luck. 5.

a DPC classic! I find your plane of focus to be either a little too shallow or just slightly out of place. I'd rather see the entire drop in focus.
