Obviously not well enough, going by the many votes of 1 and 2 :)

It's a backlit closeup (macro lens), sunlight, handheld. It's turned 180 degrees. Same seeds that I've been using for a couple years for these pictures.

Hey Ursula, nice to see you back with a beautiful image!

Well now it makes perfect sense that I thought it looked like 21_F.gif Ursula's work :-) Nice to see you here!

Beautiful! Gorgeous composition, gorgeous light and shadows, gorgeous colours in the droplets, lovely feathered bokeh towards the right... just magical.

nice shot love it

A tribute to this photo perhaps?
432081.jpg

It doesn't have the same lightness and airy feel but it's still very good.

nice job to recreate a classic DPC image
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/19/2008 12:33:48 PM
I like this photo but i'm kind of confused about what is the object. Maybe a part of a flower with water drops...I see that is some bokeh on the right to, but again it isn't clear for me. Like the border and the efects you created!

12/19/2008 11:44:18 AM
ooooh, this is beautiful! the soft lighting really pulls it off. great job!

I like this. Your bukeh adds to the value of the picture - unlike most of the other photos in this competition.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/18/2008 01:36:58 PM
Love the colors and textures. And its a beautiful composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very delicate, good focus and composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/18/2008 12:27:54 AM
My fav. Reminiscent of 21_F.gif ursula's work. Delicate and soft. Lovely.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is about as similar to 432081.jpg at it could get, which annoys me a little. Not too much, though. This is a fantastic image, after all. I do wonder, though, if:
1. This is 21_F.gif ursula
2. If not(1), then is this an homage, a copy, a crazy coincidence?
In the end, I guess I'll give you an 8. That's not too bad, right?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/17/2008 10:19:32 AM
Either Ursula or a remarkably good homage. Either way a 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/17/2008 09:46:23 AM
Looks like an 21_F.gif Ursula (and I mean that as a high compliment). Really beautiful.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/17/2008 08:07:41 AM
This is gorgeous of course. I am going to assume that it is someone other than Ursula whose 'sweeping in the rain' is so very similar. Well done!

love this!
