Beautiful light and tones, and so fresh looking. Love the DOF, not isolating the rose too much. I'm not sure about the composition, though.... it looks a little unbalanced... how much did you crop?

Why "totaly saturated". Look good. The DOF is good, the colours and light is also good. It "saturate" only me to make something else.

I'm assuming the title is a reference to the water.

Yes you are quite right in your assumption.

Very nice. I particularly like the little star highlight towards the bottom of the bud.
Do you intend it to be viewed horizontally?
Thanks for sharing.

Yes that was it's natural position although it would probably look okay in a vertical position.
