Had I voted this challenge, I would have given it a 1. For me, this kind of photograph exemplifies all that I find wrong with the voting populace of DPC. It is nothing more than a water drop on a needle point against a piece of paper with letters written on it. It has no real composition, it has no real substance, it has no real feeling. Yet it, and shots like it, repeatedly make ribbon lists. Why? because the voters are brain-dead sheep on a mass scale.

So yes, I would have given it a 1 myself, and I wonder why more didn't, actually.


AMEN! I couldn't have said it better myself. I left this one-dimensional, parochial, insipid site for all of the reasons you state.

You have the right for your own opinion, but I find your comment offensive and unfair to the author of this image and all other DPC members.

Just amazing =)

I was thinking of this but I already got two ribbons for images refracted through water drops so I decided to go for the other challenge... glad I did =) (got me a blue)

Glad to share the front page with you =)

THAT. is cool. 9

I love water shots. Nice sharp refraction. The composition feels a little off balance to me, but I understand that it can be difficult to get this kind of thing with control over every element. Good luck!

will be interested in your PP notes...
11/27/2009 10:25:29 AM

Nice composition and performance

Very cool idea. I'm a little put off by the edge of the paper in the droplet, but love the O in the background.
11/25/2009 10:31:01 PM
Good one!
11/25/2009 08:25:20 PM

Great macro!!

This is great macro, will also work in the next challenge! Nice take at the challenge! 8

clever, well lighted, and great focus, not sure if the dark background circle distracts, perhaps moving the subject more center while leaving the circle as is, would have improved the capture. 8
11/25/2009 01:38:10 AM
done before but still very well executed...8
11/25/2009 12:43:33 AM
