    Wonderful detail in capturing the flower & dew drops.

    Nicely exposed, maybe a little tight top and right. Made my favourites.

    Excellent use of the monochrome. Would have liked it better centred but still well taken.

    I am sure I am looking at a flower, but the rest of the photo is a bit mysterious. Not sure it is against a window or lying on table surface. Also not sure what the background it. All that said... I like it. It is a very effective black and white. Well done.

    Beautiful range of light in the petals. Would have been better cropped tighter, the background is distracting. Still high on my favourites.

    A beautiful flower, and the droplets are lovely. The image is nice and clear. I think I like the reflection, but not so much the rest of the surrounding background which is a little distracting.

    Wonderful detail in the petals and waterdrops.The background detracts a bit. In mt favourites.

    Nice detail in the flower, You might improve the crop by removing the partial leaves at left and the vertical bit at right; a little more shadow detail in the leaves would help, too. I might even prefer a much tighter shot that emphasizes just the petals and water droplets.

    Reminds me of an image I did here once. The wet and reflection makes the shot. I'd have done everything to eliminate everything else.

    I like the idea, but some time spent cleaning up the background (live or in pp) would help retain focus on the flower.

for me the water drops don't help, they distract from the tones of the petals, which are interesting enough on their own

    there are background distractions on the left hand side and had the flower been more central it would get a higher rating
the drops of water give the picture a vision of living rather than a still life
