I'm really not fond of droplet on rose shots. They're done so often, and there's not much that's special about them.

That being said...

This is truly spectacular!

The rose looks velvety, the drops are perfectly lit and just glow. Beautifully done -- congrats on the top 10. :)

I've tried doing droplet shots on flowers time and time again and this is a perfect representation of what I am hoping it will come out like, although it always falls short. Great DOF, fantastic sharpness. I would love for this photo to be in the "How'd They Do That" section, because I really want to learn how this was done. I'm guessing plentiful lighting was key, for the reflections on the drops and also to allow a high f-stop without getting noisy. wonderful photo.

Looks like a Janine photo to me. Either way it is really good. Well done.

Beautiful colour and focus on the petals. Water droplets add a nice touch as well.

Excellent DOF for such a close shot. well, ok, just excellent DOF. (period!) :) I would like to stand near a 50 foot reproduction of this, just to be overwhelmed
