The three little ones follow the big one across the frame. I love the shallow DOF and color...very nice.

I like your idea and concept. I wish the droplets were more in focus. I do like the faded/soft background though.

Cool shot. I would like to have all drops in focus
10/03/2007 01:49:07 PM
the drops are all blurry, that is unfortunate because otherwise this is nice

To make something like this work focus needs to be spot on - and I'm afraid that's not the case here. Focus here seems to be a tiny bit in front of the drops.

Very nice. The big drop looks fuzzy, which doesn't matter a lot but it probably does if you want a bumper dpc score. Pretty little minimal half-abstract though.

Good composition but I think the Deapth Of Field is to shallow here. I would like to see more of the raindrops in good focus.

IMO, It could be better if all drops were in focus.
Nice composition and colors.

Nice colour and focus gradiatation. I would like to see a little more sharpness in all of the drops, though. 7

Voted low, The dof needs to be greater. Only a tiny part of the feather is clear and the rest is blurred almost to the point of unrecognizable. I find water drops need to be crystal clear.

2nd part if the bright orange. Very sharp contrast to the softness of the feather.. don't know if that is what you were going for.

I love the colours in this. I really wish the drops were sharper and more in focus.

The focus on the drops is a touch off, but otherwise a wonderful shot. Love the background color.

A nice take on the water drop thing and I like the use of a feather. The focus is just slightly off, though, which for a shot like this probably needs to be dead on. The orange behind is quite pretty but in a way steals the show from the drops. It does make for a very nice near-abstract, though.
10/01/2007 11:28:11 AM
it's a very nice idea! Love the beautiful pastel colors. Could be much better, if the drops were less out of focus
10/01/2007 10:28:36 AM
A bit more focus on the drops and it would have been perfect. Love the colors.
10/01/2007 10:09:02 AM
beautiful macro, the colors add a lot too, the bubbles could have been more in focus but in reality it depends on the lens you are using
10/01/2007 08:47:20 AM
Lovey soft colours I just wish the water drops were a little sharper. Still a very pretty picture. 6

A bit more dof is needed on the drops to make them all in focus. The bokeh background is nice.
