Good luck!

Nice depth of field.

Very interesting, one of the few blurred shots that I connect with.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like the simplicity of your shot, and the shallow DOF.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like what you were going for here, but I don't think you quite made it. Good DOF and composition, but the focus is just not sharp enough on the blade with the beads of water. I think it might have been more effective with some burning of the highlights in the background and if it had been presented in color.

seems OOF to me
03/16/2009 01:18:03 AM
so subtle, yet so powerful

Perhaps a tad soft at the focal point, but overall a lovely macro. The lines and bokeh are wonderful.

lacks a real focal point
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 09:43:08 AM
I really enjoy abstracts but this just looks OOF.
03/15/2009 07:09:21 AM
Kinda abstract, nice
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I have to say the same, it is nice but its not sharp, why didnt you choose rather maybe less interesting but pic of good quality? ;)
cheers, brano

Everything seems a bit out of focus here. Not a very eye catching image. I don't really understand how this can be your best photo ever taken and hidden gem. Could be a contender for the Brown Ribbon.
03/14/2009 11:20:08 PM
Nothing in focus, with the hint of droplets along the edge of the leaf and at the end. IMO, this would work better if at least the top droplet was in focus.
03/14/2009 05:32:18 PM
A neat capture of the droplets.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 04:06:37 PM
I'm sure this has special meaning for you but it is too blurred for me to make out anything specific. As an abstract, it has some interesting shapes and tones.
03/14/2009 01:18:01 PM
Nice shallow DOF, not sure about the color treatment
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 11:23:08 AM
Nice idea. I think the main droplets could be a little more in focus.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 04:14:14 AM
the droplets need to be a lot crisper to have more impact and appeal to the viewer.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 12:16:14 AM
Lovvly.
03/13/2009 11:56:45 PM
Beautiful idea, but unfortunately the image is just not sharp enough in any one place.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 07:56:41 PM
nice abstact
03/13/2009 06:11:57 PM
A sharper foucs on the drops would make this image stronger.
03/13/2009 04:42:01 PM
photo needs to have more in focus
03/13/2009 04:02:01 PM
I wish something were in focus... I like the idea of this very much.

Interesting shot
03/13/2009 02:35:54 PM
on the border between awful and fabulous.. I'm leaning towards fab myself 9

Good abstract interpretation. Nice lensbaby shot!
03/13/2009 12:28:36 PM
Nice simple shot. The OOF for most if not all of the image might hurt the score but overall good shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 10:46:21 AM
focus is a bit off IMO
03/13/2009 06:57:07 AM
Looks very sweet with the soft lights and tones.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 04:34:55 AM
Needs to be a tad sharper.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 04:08:45 AM
Great DOF to keep pulling us to the droplet
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 01:37:02 AM
I like the color.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 01:16:22 AM
Nice shot, very interesting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 08:57:10 PM
nice macro, good DOF
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 08:34:36 PM
Nice sweep of the leaf. Like the sepia tone, but for me I like a bit more sharpness on the drops.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 08:13:55 PM
this is just too bad quality - sorry
03/12/2009 12:41:29 PM
A little to muted for me. Good detail on the drop tho.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 01:23:28 AM
Sorry, but it doesn't work for me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 09:50:20 PM
I wish that the focus ws just a little sharper on one of the droplets.
03/11/2009 08:48:27 PM
Strong abstract composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 03:39:22 PM
focus a little too soft
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 01:56:20 PM
Nice macro. I like the very small dof
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 12:58:38 PM
It's a very beautiful photo. Just a tad soft on the droplets.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 11:38:07 AM
I really like the very narrow DOF here. the toning works well, too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 11:24:34 AM
not sure if anything here is in focus
03/11/2009 10:23:44 AM
Interesting to see how the foreground water droplets complement the bokeh in the BG. Nice. Might have been worth just a tiny increase in contrast/sharpening on the end of the blade of grass in the foreground. Just a tad
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 05:40:17 AM
A bit too blurry for me. At least some of the droplets should have been sharp.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 02:49:59 AM
wish the subject was better focused
