Been shooting off an on all week, but this was taken and edited right before the deadline.

Image seen through a droplet of water on a similar flower. Took many photos, but this lighting was the most dramatic and kept the catch light off of the droplet. I hope you like it.

Sorry, but this gorgeous image escaped my notice when I was voting - not sure how. I would have given it a 9. It is very creative.

Lovely little water drop reflection! For this challenge I think I would have cropped out more of the leafy bit on the bottom and kept more of the flower on top, if that were possible.

This is a little bit different that the usual pratice of shooting a subject through several drops of water, a refreshing change for me. Well done.

Nice clear crisp water drop. It almost looks as though it's a cutout from another image. lol
