I love the deep color and composition here.

Very pretty, and I immediately get the connection to the challenge. In fact, bonus points for subtly meeting the challenge. :)

I think that without the title, one is not going to immediately get the connection to the theme. With the title, I do love the thinking here that a flower could be sad, and maybe at wit's end, and is shedding a tear to express grief. Gorgeous capture of the full droplet before it rolls off the petal.

I'm glad YOU will be the one sticking around here and the other 'person' wont be. DPC already feels a better place. I been here years. keep at it.

this is a lovely image, and your choices in composition and negative-space use are excellent.

ignore the hater-troll....

Well in return for a negative comment. Nice job and concept. I would have maybe liked to see it a little more around the side, showing more of the petal but still very nice and lovely color you have captured here. :)

Didn't mean to ruin your day. My deepest apology. For the record your photo was the highest I voted for.

This should have done better IMO. Perhaps removing some of the empty space would increase the overall impact.

Nice Job! I win this time. Better luck next time :)

I wonder how this would look with a vertical crop and more space on the bottom (so the drop would fall into the bulk of the black space).

Nice colors, but watch your reflections.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like the way the flower is reflecting back into the drop. Great.

Excellent. This will certainly score a ribbon. I like the space to the right, but perhaps there is just a little too much. 10

Beautiful picture, and I think it is a great take on the challenge guidelines. Maybe the flower could be a tad bit more in focus, but other than that, it's great.

beautiful

Just-okay idea with a weak connection to the challenge theme, but reasonably well executed. Precise focus on the drop is good. DOF is good.

Really great capture and lovely composition and cropping. I might have cropped a bit more of the black out but, still nicely done.

Nice, great DOF
