Spent the whole week racking my brain, then the whole day hunting/shooting various subjects.
Settled on this image. Whilst the droplets are not hugely visible or large, I want the viewers eyes to first focus on the largest drop and slide down the line to the smallest drop...and then explore the rest of the shot.
I know water droplets have been done to death on DPC but I haven't done them to death :P

Exported from RAW. Rotated -90˚, cropped, unsharp mask, experimented with Adj Layer and colour saturation as suggest by CC in my 1st challenge, but was happy with the original exposure and Vivid from my D90, added border, saved for web. I'm hoping for an honourable mention for a new DPCer or some honest criticism...and if you voted 1, have the decency to please tell me WHY!

Very nice. I haven't really tried any macro. Oh, and as for the people who gave you 1s. They are referred-to here as "trolls." You'll see some of the most wonderful pics that get 1s. Sometimes I wonder if it's someone who thinks they have a shot at a ribbon voting other good ones down.

Hey harvey. I like this shot. Probably would have been a little better if the drops were a little bigger in my opinion. I would love to see the reflections in the drops better. I didn't get around to voting this week but would have voted it a 6 or 7 probably.

Thanks for the comment, this challenge was a real wierd one. Very few comments even in the top 20. I was hoping for some more constructive criticism from the regulars but alas. Who voted 10? :)
