Woohoo! This was a fun one to watch this week.

For everyone who was curious about the out of focus portion of the left-most petal, it is actually another flower right behind the main one.

Also, there were no tricks here. Condensation formed all along the edges of these flowers. This was a nice little find on an early morning photo trek.

I am so conflicted about this picture. It's weird to see all those water droplets around the edge of the petals (I suppose they're actually bubbles?) and then there's that submerged edge of one petal. It's so strange, and I like strange, but I think the strangeness would have been stranger and better if you cropped closer. Even so, this is an imaginative, interesting shot and gets a 7 from me.

This is lovley! but what happened that peatal on the left? It looks skewed.

Fits the challenge well, but the addition of the water drops isn't working for me. The drops on the right flower really pulls me away from the main subject. 5

I'm a bit disappointed with this shot because it has so much potential, but the composition isn't right in my opinion. The in-focus flower and the right-most (blurry) flower are brilliant. The flower at the back distracts.

10 :) fantastic.

My instant reaction was "Wow, cool!". I really like the shallow DOF, the color, and the way the droplets glisten in the light. Meets the rule of thirds perfectly. My only suggestion would be to add a little bit more negative space to the top and bottom. It just feels that that flower needs a little more space to hang out in.

OMG this is waaaay cool! I wish it was clear all the way around! The blurred out petal is a bit distracting. This image is so different than the usual flower shot!

Beautiful photo!
It isn't clear to me what happened to the upper left petal, there is something disturbing. Otherwise it was perfect!

This is one of the nicest images in the challenge. Not only does it use the rule of thirds, but it imparts a certain freshness.
