When I can't think of a title I think of the obvious and translate it into another language. In this case I translated Maroon Dewdrop. Plants in my rose garden. It rained the night before and I just loved how the droplets glistened on the maroon leaves. Nothing exciting but I love it. Really hard to determine how to crop it because I liked everything. Shot in raw, converted, levels, selective color, saturation, noise ninja, usm, resized saved for web. Hope this does better than my curves challenge entry.

This photo was chosed to be displayed in the Hurston Extreme Makeover Home edition house. Looked real good blown up over their fire place as 4' x 5' print. It was exciting to see it on TV.

I love your macro shots. This one is gorgeous! I love that maroon color and the drops are such a great contrast to it. Lovely way to make something simple seem so pretty. Congrats on the high FS score!

The composition may not be all that strong (IMHO) but the details you've captured are terrific, and the rich colors and textures are so lovely! :)

8 - Beautiful. Gorgeous rich colors. At first wanted to see the texture more, but I like the 'smoothness'.

Nice capture. The green leaf (right) just kept drawing my eye.

Very nice colors, excellent focus on the lower right leaf but I'm more drawn towards the center left leaf which, in my opinion, should be the point of focus here. Composition and cropping don't work for me. A nice entry nonetheless.
