I like the graphic quality of this. Nice capture of the droplet...not quite sure about the size of the black background, perhaps a tighter crop? I kile it a lot.

Composition: 6, A nice soft angle to the composition. I wonder if a stronger composition could be made by moving the droplet to the left or right?

Technical: 6, Nice and sharp on the subject, the rest illustrates shallow DOF (good).

Appeal: 4, You generate some interest by using the water droplet as a "lens" to focus the viewer's attention on the ... feather??? But then it stops there. After you've looked at that, there's really not much else to see in the image. The diagonal lines are nice, but they lead to nowhere.

Challenge: 5, Nice close-up. Closer still and you might have seen more of the texture in the feather.

Overall Calculated Average Score: 5, Not a bad image. It just lacks a strong reason to spend more time looking at it and exploring its contents.

Lovely look at a feather - good detail, composition. The water droplet give a nice spot for your eye to settle and encourages them to move on because you can see through it. the bright highlights in the droplet are a bit blown out.

this is great! I love the lines, broken by deformations and lens effect of the water drop. B/W works very nicely . My only nit on this one is the water drop in the lower right corner. It is a bit distracting, but overall this is really nice. Well done...bumping up
