Burn in ( darken ) the foreground and Background, will remove distractions like the verticle lines of other leaves.

Stretching to meet the challenge theme with the image. Nice B&W macro. The way the drops magnify the texture of the leaf is interesting.

Air enters the stomata, not water. Back to botany 101. Stomata are mostly on the underside of the leaf too.

Ah, but the stomata is underneath. (Don't take this comment seriously, this is a great photo)

nice picture, but IMHO "shoehorned" into the challenge

One of the pictures that thinks outside the box a bit. Great B&W treatment. Terrifice focus. Compositionally, there could be a little improvement. Not sure what exactly, maybe a different angle, isolate a but of the backgroudn, etc... Still a standout here and highly rated.

Awaiting entrance - what?! Oh, it's a plant thing. If they were going to roll down the leaf, wouldn't they have done so already? :D Overall, a decent waterdrop shot. Crisp with nice DOF. The tonal range seems a little limited, especially on the high end. All JMO of course. Good luck.

STOMATA! YES! (I am, ahem, a bio geek :-D ) So yeah, kudos for using a great term in your title. I bet by the end of voting you'll be sick of people not understanding the title, but I hope I am wrong. Lovely photo and great black and white tones.
