Really simple shot of a rose I got for my wife. I didn't have a spray bottle so the water drops are from me shaking my hands on it. I've been wanting to do one of these shots for a while and the recent shot from the warm challenge inspired me to go ahead and do it. My wife didn't mind since it got her a dozen roses... Anyways heres the details:

Shot in jpeg, cropped, sharpened, unsharp mask, hue/saturation.

Very cool. And it's got the always helpful water drops. Nicely done.

good details and use of filled frame - the purple reflections on the droplets are actually a bit of a distraction for me

This could have done really well in the inverted challenge :). Still though I like it a lot, it's very creative and I think you'll do pretty well.

Can't decide if I like this or not. I think I would prefer it without the bubbles. Did you do the color by lighting or pc?
