I wanted to color correct adjust a tad, but ran out of time. I had planned on shooting before hand but did not have a chance, so once more I m submitting last minute.

I don't expect to score to high but I'm hoping to stay above a five.

The image did not turn out as expected. I shot with a macro, but was having issues getting my drop as sharp as I wanted it to be. Also it would have been niice if I would have had some time to experiment a bit more.

I'm hoping to get some feedback on getting the drop sharper after the challenge.

I shot this with a 200 mm macro (my 105 mm is getting repaired since the manual focus stopped working). I was also on a tripod, and manually focused. I used the timer so I did not get camera shake...but for whatever reason I could not get it to look as sharp as I wanted it to be. Could it be because I used glycerin?

7... love the softness and sharpness controversy... (voted earlier)

Nice idea but the depth of field is just out, there isnt enough of the image in focus to make the water droplet the focal point that it should be. Good effort all the same though.

I wish more things in this picture were in focus, could've made for a much more interesting picture, I'm getting lost in the blurriness.
