I know - another water droplet! This is bound to score low. And yes, I would also have scored it low.

But i just bought a new set of extension tubes and since it's snow and ice here (and no bugs), I felt I had to experiment with something else.

These icicles sure melt extremely fast!! Tried to get a splash but wasn't able to get one AND keep the hearts intact.

I still think this should have scored higher. I think that the "before and after" factor was too subtle for most :-)

Just look at that Bokeh! :) Well done TrollMan! A very respectable score.

Excellent in all the most important ways! Loving the hearts! I think we have a ribbon winner! Irene?

If this is a drop of water actually falling from an icicle, then I applaud you. Very cool (no pun intended).

Wonderful shot. Love the DOF and the detail in the droplet, great idea, perfect execution, (IMHO). 10.

Nice image, 1 heart would have been enough.

Nice bokeh. I'm sure you were at it for a while to get this drip. Turned out good. 7

I like this. Its simple and well composed. Though maybe just one heart reflected would have been better than multiple (since its called 'icicle with a TOUCH of love', you know?)

While I applaud your really interesting, excellent photo, I just dont think this applies to the challenge.

Well captured reflection in the drop. I'd like to see the drop just a touch higher so the bottom of the background was all white, but I don't know if that was possible.

Great capture, I wonder how many attempts that took. I love the detail in the drip and the way the drip is still forming and not quite a sphere yet.

You win. If anything at all, and I'm really nitpicking here, it would have been to crop it a bit differently, with less space on the left, and a bit tighter, down from the top.

I wonder how many attempts this took? Fantastic image, a bit of a standout for me.
