I love this photo! I think it really captures the beauty of water along with the blur effect on the flower, it nicely blends with the background making it a magnificent piece of art!

I like how it's blurred in the back, forcing your eyes to look at the waterdrop. And of course, the color is really cool too

I like this shot, but something about it... I don't know.
It's still definitely a good picture, though. It might be the clarity of the petals that are closest to the camera compared to the ones that are next to them. But I can't honestly claim to know much about macros.

Thanks alot...Yeah, this was my first macro shoot, and this was the only one i was really happy with. Since the flower was so small, it was hard to get much of it in focus at the same time. Next time i hope to get a bigger flower, and a bigger drop, and hopefully some good reflection in the drop :)

thanks for all your great comments!!!

I love the colors in this, especially emphasized by the black back ground. The water drop is in just the right place too. Well done :D

HAHA ROFL xD I know, i had to destroy the flower right after the photo shoot just to be safe, those dumblebumbles have a reallly nasty sting.

haha yeah, my macro lens is "100mm" so its perminantly zoomed in 100mm, and you can get like 15 centemeters from whatever you are trying to take a picture of, but then you adjust the focus, and its clear, and since its 100mm, its zoomed in tons yay :D ... urs focuses .5 of a cm :o NICE :D
