That's a pretty big raindrop. Great how you use it to reveal more detail in the leaf.

One of the better water droplet macros in this challenge.

a great capture. I love the selective focus. Congrats on an awesome image. I might have cropped it a bit, thts the only thing I would change.

Great shallow depth of field and focus. The only thing not totally appealing to me is the colors, but i understand that you don't control that. :)

Extraordinarily good color. Nicely focused. Well composed. My vote for best of show. Well done!

Very nice. Macro within macro! A tighter crop with the main droplet off center is the only suggestion I could come up with.

I really love this shot! the water drop looks like a mag glass

I like the purity of the big and small drops with the magnifying glass effect. Amazing picture!

I love how the drop magnifies the veins in the leaf. Very nice perspective and DOF. This is unusual. The purple and the yellow with the orange tones make for a nice color composition. 9

Upon 2nd review, this is still one of my favorites. It almost has an animal quality to it. Like some pre-historic beast with a giant eye (or maybe I've had too much coffee). Just stellar though. I think you'll do quite well with it.

Great macro. I wish there were more reflections on the water :)

Very interesting composition. The dead leaves and the "life-giving" water make for good contrast. The colors are great. Nice job. Bumping up.

Beautiful colors, rather a big raindrop but who cares, wish I would have thought of something like this..

The drop magnifies the veins of the leaf very well. I would prefer a slightly different crop but this is a great find!

Beautiful

This is simply a beatiful image. I dont know whether I would have cenetered the shot as you had but the colors are great and the rainbow effect is superb. 7

Excellent macro... I like the magnification provided by the water drops.

Cool title from one of my favorite artist. Brothers is Arms is the best Dire Straits album.
On to your photo: That is very nice. I like the shallow depth of field. It's very cool the effect you have captured; everything is more or less out of focus except the what is seen through the water drop. Bravo 10.

I like the lighting and how the leaf is sharpened under the water drop. This is quite a unique shot.

Rain or artificial? either way, 8

Wow, well seen! I would have been tempted to crop tighter on this one, but otherwise very well done!

You should have just called it 'Why Worry' - I'm just a sucker for enigmatic titles ;-)
