Elegant and unusual - really like that I can see that dividing line between wet and dry on the leaf surface itself.

Congrats on the new PB score, Pat! Excellent macro, the water looks amazing, almost like liquid lead, so very beautiful!!

Woo hoo! ANOTHER personal best! Three challenges, three personal bests. Now that's what I call growth. :) FWIW, I gave this an 8 - I thought it really captured what macro photography is all about: showing us details we wouldn't normally see. And you did it in a nice composition with beautiful shallow DOF. I especially like how the water's surface tension is just barely holding back the flood. It tells a story of life lost and on the verge of being swept from memory entirely.

Wow! Congratulations Pat! A great image and a new personal high!

Very nice image. Like the composition. Like the oof leaf. The mix of textures captured is very good, especially the tension of the water against the edge of the leaf, reminiscent of crude oil.

very nice. I love the fact that over half the photo is of water and that the boundry between the water and leaf is a nice pleasing shape. great job on focus and dof as well.
