Water drops.. I know :D

[Sep. 16th, 2010 01:11:00 PM]

I'm now completely convinced that this is a DNMC :( I feel so thick for not even considering that that an image should have been unexposed on more technical terms in the camera.. That thought didn't even come to my mind.

For each and every image I take I will inevitably pull the curves down.. That's like a major part of how I process images and ALL of my garden shots end up looking like this.. I think my friends would recognize this as mine a mile away :)

Thank you so much!! My first blue :D

Congratulations on such a well deserved win! I was one of your 8's and would have probably voted higher if I had studied this shot as much as I have now. This is truely a lovely photo.

I couldn't remember why your profile name was so familiar to me until I remembered that you were the first person to ever give me a comment on one of my photos, which encouraged me to start entering challenges - so thanks!

Congrats on your first blue. This was my joint favourite image in the challenge (I gave out two 9's). So dark, yet clarity perfectly retained. Great image.

Wow this is an amazing capture, definitely my favorite in this contest, great DOF and details on the leaves, perfect 10

I really like this shot. I really like that you really focused (compositionally and figuratively) on the highlights on the water drops. It almost gives the appearance of a vignette.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/19/2010 01:01:30 PM
I'm rooting for you!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/19/2010 05:24:17 AM
Sweet as, I give you a 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

One of the few (maybe only) pictures in the challenge that I thought really carried the theme and had relatively dark subject. Excellent job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/18/2010 06:35:24 AM
One of the rare picture really underexposed in this challenge, and moreover with an underexposure used in a creative way. Congrats

Nice detail and great dof.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I am very impressed with this photo. One of the rare of the challenge in which underexposure really adds to the mood. Very well done!

Nice, the water droplets definitely stand out. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Gorgeous. I don't really consider it underexposed as this is perfect, but it is slightly low key. I love it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/15/2010 05:28:21 PM
The tones and colors in this are absolutely beautiful. So rich. I hope it does well (I'm not voting), but to be honest, I love it like this and can't imagine it not in these dark tones. Of course that's without seeing it. Beautiful photo.

Lovely image, just enough light to make the 3D effect work and the BG dissapear!
