My word! I worked all week to get one silly drop to be perfect, and it never happened.

WHO KNEW droplets were so difficult? ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' IreneM makes them look so simple. *rolleyes*

The bug was a happy accident. I think he took pity on me after such a long time under the lights. Just a kindness, I think.

Life is good.

I'm really surprised this didn't score higher. The bug is actually looking UP at the ribbon. AWESOME!

You certainly have the lot in here! I like the irony of the DPC clichés with the dead looking flower. The shot itself is fairly unappealing, mostly down to the harsh lighting and flat looking colours, and I'm wondering if you did that intentionally for the irony.

You forgot to include dynamic swoopy clouds and an old barn, otherwise this would have nailed a 10 from me.

extreme cliché overload, but I guess you'll get it for that. good clean background, the petals look a bit hot

One of my top picks for this challenge, has all the
DPC clichés in there. Nice waterdrop with Ribbon.

This is well shot, and a nice way of incorporating the ribbon in the water drop. Not entire original using water drops to refract, however, but I still think is well done.
