Very nice shot! I especially like how much depth of field there is for a shot in this range, good detail.

very good. i like the design of the webs. Nice.

Beautiful. Just beautiful. I think your angle, light and DOF are perfect for making those water drops look gorgeously 3-dimensional.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I think a spider web is the definitive item that is perfect because of it's imperfections. The focus on those central drops is spot on sharp, and the comp is great. Very very nice. Adding this to my faves.

The drops look like mercury, wonderful picture, love the bokeh

Lovely picture. Even the web isn't perfect, yet the whole makes a wonderful image. Captures the idea behind the challenge to perfection.

This is lovely. I am such a fan of a dew ridden spider web. I might've cropped it so that the diagonal branch in the lower right isn't there. I don't think it would detract from the overall shape of the web. Like pearls aren't they?

Nice shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This shot is quite nice. So many don't meet the challenge. This is beauty in imperfection, made from nature and so delicate that a strong wind could easily destroy it. The water beads truly look like pearls.
