I am surprised this is so far down. Great shot and definitely deserved better, IMHO.

I can't believe people are objecting to the grainy quality. That's what draws me to this photo, it appears like some kind of denium, dark bluejean material and makes the photo far more interesting than if it was a drop in smooth brightly lit water, bet you can find hundreds of photos like that. I gave it a ten.

A little grainy, but nice drop capture!

Interesting image. I like the premise behind it but it has a flatness in color that is a bit offputting. If there was a way to darken the water more so that shining droplet stood out even better, that contrast might add more pop to the photo. Since the droplet IS the main and basically only area of focus for the photograph I feel it needs something more to give it a boost. I gave a 4.

Simple and elegant, but too noisy. That takes away from the overall effect. 7

Very nice composition and lines. The image is a bit grainy though and I think you could bump up the color a notch. Still, very good shot.

Very well done minimalist shot. I am presuming that is noise? Looks almost like it was a texture of some kind.

Wonderful , looks like denium. Can almost feel the thickness of the cloth.Would love to know the details on this one. Interesting title.

Ok, I give it it a 10. I love the shot, except for the grain is a bit overwhelming. Of course, maybe you were trying for the grainy look. Still a favorite from me:)

Some people use grain as a creative tool. I saw a lot of grain in this one. Did you shoot in RAW? My camera has a TIFF setting, and I notice when I shoot at TIFF, the compression leaves way to much grain. It is because the file is so large, that it can't handle such compression, but when enlarged to poster size it looks really awesome. Try using smaller files for these challenges if you can, because it helps to clear up alot of noise and grain.

Nice shot! A little noisy though... You might want to try Neat Image. 9

That's timing! Under that lighting I can see why the image is so grainy.

nice timing. maybe a closer crop would be great. the noise, for once (I usually like grain) detracts from the overall quality, i feel. 7 for the timing.

Very nice stop action on the rain drop. The grain in the picture is distracting, though.
